IFTTT free web based automation service
IFTTT is the free web based automation service for small tasks between Internet-connected services. Some of the sample services includes Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote, Nest, Fitbit, Amazon Alexa, and Gmail.For example, if you make a status update on one service (a trigger), IFTTT service will make sure an action takes place on another channel to, for example, re-post the same update. Combine them just right and you can create a chain of triggers and actions across a number of services. Currently this blog updates are being broadcast using IFTTT to FB,Twitter,linkedin etc.,
IFTTT brings services together into Applets. An Applet connects two or more apps or devices together. It enables you to do something that those apps or devices couldn’t do on their own.For example, you could use an Applet to add Google Calendar events to to-dolist. Or one that lets you create events in your iPhone Calendar, via Google Assistant.do on their own.
Applets are composed of triggers and actions.On average, most Applets run within 15 minutes of being triggered.
