If This Then That: Make the Internet work for you!
IFTTT used to be web only. Recently they introduced their iPhone app. I haven't played with the app too much, since I've always used the service online. But it appears to be user-friendly and working the way it's supposed to. Honestly, it's something I need to revisit, because they've added so many useful recipes since I've played with it last.
Now, when I say recipes, I'm not talking about breakfast muffins and chicken dinners (use Evernote Food for that). No, I'm talking about recipes that use triggers and actions as directions for the Internet to do something for you, while you do. . . nothing. Sounds like a plan!
How does it work, you ask? Before you set up a recipe, you have to turn on the channels you want to use. So, say you want to save tweets you've favorited to Evernote. You need to turn on the Twitter and Evernote channels. You'll need to sign in to these apps and allow IFTTT access (same as any other app interaction).
Examples of some channels:
Then, before you go to the trouble of creating a new recipe, search through the already created ones, because chances are, someone beat you to it. These are the shared recipes. Anyone can use them.
If you find the recipe you want to use, just click Use Recipe and you're good to go. You can turn it off at any time.
I just turned one on to save any photos I'm tagged in on Facebook to my Dropbox.
IFTTT is a gem. A cool little service that works in the background for you so you can work on other stuff. Go play with it. It's worth the time.
