This app seems to support the largest set of intent attributes among other similar apps. Unfortunately, it is not able to handle the CREATE_SHORTCUT action, therefore it cannot be used to add custom shortcuts anywhere except the home screen.

Good app Allows you to create shortcut to any app or internal classes. Used it to create shortcut to google now. I don't like the swipe bottom-up gesture. So I disabled it on CM 10.2 and there is no google now icon on the drawer.

Works well It works really well. It's not for beginner users, but that's fine. I like the power it provides. The only thing I don't like is how the shortcuts are added to the homescreen. I would rather do it the regular way rather than let the app place them on the homescreen for me.
