The popular website IFTTT (acronym of “If This Then That”) is now supported by an app for iPhone. Like the website the app enables you to trigger an action automatically when an event takes place. The user simply has to build a “recipe” to create the action. The app is supported by many different channels of different websites and services.
Upon launching the app and creating an account, you can begin to build your own recipes to automate actions. An example is when you post a photo to Instagram, an action is triggered which immediately backs up that image to your Dropbox or GoogleDrive account. There are over 60 different channels that you can create actions between including the major Google apps and social networks. An improvement which has been brought about by the inclusion of an iPhone app is that three iOS channels are now supported by the IFTTT framework, which are Contacts Photos and Reminders. The integration is in-depth enough to narrow selections to certain criteria such as the iPhone camera it was taken on or just screenshots.
