IFTTT (If This, Then That) is a new app, and if you’ve used it already, you know how fun it is. If you haven’t had the pleasure yet, here are ten IFTTT recipes to get you started.
IFTTT creates connections between other apps. It’s great because it helps you improve the benefits and usefulness of your favorite apps.
I first started using IFTTT in conjunction with Evernote and enjoyed it so much I began looking for more ways to make my favorite apps work for me.
To create a connection with IFTTT you need to make a “Recipe.”
There are two types of Recipes; DO’s and IF’s.
DO’s are Recipes that enable you to create your own action button. This is usually an interaction from one app to another with a tap of a button on your smartphone. For example, when you press a DO button, a text is sent to your wife telling her that you’re on your way home.
IF’s are Recipes created to work in the background and automate a task between two apps. For example, IF you post (THIS) a new article to your WordPress blog THEN it will automatically post (THAT) to your Facebook page.
