You have to be smart when you are living in a smart world right. Hence your smart devices should collaborate and cooperate with each other but it doesn’t naturally happen. That’s where IFTTT comes to play. You can do a lot with the help of this little service.
IFTTT stands for “IF That Then This”. These links consist of just two elements: a Trigger (‘If That’) and an Action (‘Then This’) – for example, if your home security camera detects movement in your home (a trigger), you can receive an email, Tweet or other warning (an action).
Cool stuff right? Well, you can try a lot of cool examples like the above using the IFTTT Applets
Applets are simple connections between products and apps.
All you need to do is tap and enable the Applet you like. You can discover vast number of Applets from the IFTTT site – https://ifttt.com/discover
I use IFTTT to make my day-to-day life easier.. A few Applets I use frequently
- Automatically create new reminders on your iPhone for emails you star in Gmail
- Automatically keep a playlist of your Spotify Discover Weekly recommendations
- Get Slack notifications about GitHub pull requests assigned to you
- Automatically tweet Medium stories that you recommend
IFTTT is really worth it as you want to keep up your busy life with smart devices 😀
It definitively made my life easier.
On a side note they have got both iOS and Android apps as well.
