IFTTT is an amazing app that allows you to create automation chains between your various apps so that certain events trigger other events to occur automatically. This can greatly improve your ability to get things done since you can perform several tasks by performing a single starter task that gets a chain of tasks started. Each automated series is an applet that works as a service to perform a specific chain of events among your apps.

IFTTT is one of the most useful mobile apps on the market simply because it works to streamline your workflow by automating chains of events. There are more than 500 apps that work with the IFTTT framework, including popular platforms like Weather Underground, Instagram, Gmail, Google Drive, Twitch, Twitter, and Telegram. It also works with physical devices like Nest, Philips Hue, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and your mobile device. You can also use the IFTTT app to track data collected by the Health app on your mobile device, which allows you to properly manage your positive daily habits. You can create applets that will let you control anything with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, and you can automate news reports from specific publications. You can create an applet that will give you the daily weather report at specific times, and you can send automated messages when certain events are triggered. Another interesting thing you can do with IFTTT is create a custom Craigslist search that will send you an alert as soon as a matching listing is posted. Security alerts for your home or business can be automated, and you can create posts on every social network by simply posting to your primary network. Photos on your mobile device can be automatically backed up in variety of ways as soon as they are created, and other files can be uploaded and synced to cloud-based storage whenever they are altered. Services like Google Drive and Dropbox work with the software seamlessly. If you have any smart home equipment, like a thermostat or security system, you can use IFTTT to control those pieces of hardware. You can even set specific events to occur whenever you appear in a specific location. It is really impossible to describe all the things you can do with this app since it gives you the power to create your own event chains with various events.
