Cook Up Your Productivity: Auto-Pilot Daily Internet Tasks With ifttt

We all have our own routine tasks, often daily, that can take up a considerable amount of our time and usually tend to be quite boring or are difficult to stay on top of. We dream of the day a handy personal assistant or even a well-trained chimpanzee, depending on the task simplicity, could punch the keyboard at 100 strokes a second to take care of it all for us. Day dream no more, ifttt is here to put the internet to work for you.
 

What’s ifttt (if this then that)?

Using a simple trigger and action format, ifttt allows you to connect any two web services together to perform tasks on auto-pilot. For example, add a photo to Instagram and have it uploaded into a Facebook album, automatically. You create a trigger (Instagram) which causes an action (Facebook). The combinations you can create are only limited to your imagination and the channels – the web services and devices you use every day – that are on ifttt.


Take a look through the ifttt channels to see the web applications you can use to create triggers and actions. A trigger + action = task, and you can create your own recipes (task formulas) to share with your friends or community.

  1. I in addition to my pals have been taking note of the great tips and hints located on the blog then then got a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the site owner for those secrets. My ladies are already certainly stimulated to see all of them and now have truly been taking pleasure in those things.

  3. Witth havin so much written conteent ddo you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve
    either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my permission.
