The Shortcut is pretty simple: when I run it, it maximizes the brightness of my iOS device and opens the Glass app. If you download the Shortcut it’s pretty easy to modify it to instead open a different application (e.g., Instagram, 500px, Flickr, etc). It’s definitely improved my experiences using the app and helped me to better appreciate the images that are shared by individuals on the platform.
I cannot tell you how many times I've seen people using their phones with their brightness turned all the way down while looking at photos. It is bad enough that so many great photos are being viewed on such small screens, but it is downright criminal that they are viewed with such low brightness!
I'm going to take this shortcut and modify it for my needs. You should too! And give it to your dimly lit screen loving friends.
