IFTTT Automation Examples

IFTTT (If This Then That) is a free service that can help save you time by automating tasks, like content discovery. Below is just one example of how IFTTT can be used to curate information.

Start using IFTTT now. It’s free!

This is the basic idea of IFTTT: If something happens (the trigger), do something else, like “if a new video about X topic appears on YouTube, tweet it”. And you can create chains to automate multiple steps of common tasks. “If I tweet, send it to Blogger. If I add something to Blogger, post it to Facebook”, and so on.

Creating an Applet is extremely fast and intuitive: create the trigger within a connected service, like Twitter, and then create what happens when that trigger fires. The extent of how much you can automate is limited only by the available services and your imagination.

IFTTT automation can help generate new ideas, discover new content and share relevant pages on social media and at work.

For home, IFTTT automation can do even more amazing things, such as adjust your thermostat, turn off lights and record programs.

Get Notified When Popular Paid Apps Become Free

This Applet automatically updates a Google Sheet whenever AppZapp discovers that a popular paid iOS or Android app is now available for free.

The IFTTT Setup

 

The Result

What you do with this data is totally up to you but here is an example of turning it into a curation stream. Once IFTTT creates the Google Sheet, you can update it with some logic to turn rows of data into cut-and-paste ready HTML.

Create a new column in the sheet and use the code below as a starter:

The result will be a column of HTML that will look like the following:

Weather Now App
3D Earth – weather widget
Universal Image Search Pro
Fitness and Bodybuilding by VGFIT
Percentage Calculator – SHOWS THE CALCULATION !!!
SmartOCR Text Reader
iCarConnect – the best on-board computer for your car
Depello – color splash your photos
Epica Pro – Epic camera and photography booth for taking legend and creative pics
Touch Your Toes – Flexibility Trainer
Pool Break 3D Billiards 8 Ball, 9 Ball, Snooker
Night Photo and Video Shoot
Colorburn – 1000 filters camera for photo & video

There are a ton of services on IFTTT and the list keeps growing. I’d love to see any ways that you use it to automate, so please share your applets!
