It sounds complicated when you first look at it but once you understand how recipes work it is brilliant and there are so many possibilities.
I have started using this in a couple of different ways:
- Integrated with my Gmail with Evernote: As a school governor I get a lot of emails that I need to refer to at a later date, now when I file emails into a certain folder they are automatically added to a notebook within Evernote
- I use an app on my phone called Pushover (a simple notification app for both iOS / Android), this also sends notifications through to my Pebble watch, but with IFTTT each morning I get a notification of what the weather is going to be like, you can choose the time of the notification, the area the forecast is for etc
- Being an avid Spurs fan I like to keep ahead up to date on Spurs news, I there fore get an email every time there is an update on the BBC Sport Spurs RSS feed (of course this can be used for any RSS feed), I will no doubt be adding more notifications like this.
The above are just a few ideas of what I use IFTTT for but thought I would share this great site.
One feature that isn't currently working in the UK due to a network issue is notifications via SMS. This used to work but for some reason it has stopped working on a number of networks so give it a go, it has been reported to the site but no change likely any time soon.
Not sure if this is old news to a lot of you, if so how do you use it?
Also would love to hear other ways you help productivity etc
