IFTTT for Android Control The Internet

IFTTT is the kind of black magic that web images use to bend the Internet to their will. The best part is that the command that gets it to work is pretty simple. There’s no abra cadabra or expelliarmus to memorize here. Just open the  app and fill in the blanks within the statement if ___ then ___ with triggers and actions of your choice. As an aspiring web wizards we can carry around this well-disguised wand.

A great example is when you get an new email with an attachment, IFTTT can automatically save the attached file to your Dropbox account for safe keeping.


Every “If this, then that” scenario is called a recipe. The “this” part of the recipe is called a trigger, while the “that” is referred to as an action. Lastly, there are channels, which are the services that IFTTT supports, including social media sites, online tools, and email and services such as Twitter, Gmail, Facebook, Vimeo, Belkin WeMo, and Evernote. There are also situation-based channels, for the time and date, and the weather. All told, there are 100 channels, and for a full list do refer to the website.

The IFTTT for Android can do everything the IFTTT website can do, and more. It opens to a screen with a timeline of all of your recipes, which shows every instance, including date and time, where one of your recipes completes its task. You’ll also see extra information, where available, such as photos that are shared through IFTTT, or your location on a map if you check in with Foursquare as part of a recipe.

I think this is the most helpful part of the app, because it lets you know that your recipes are working correctly, and shows what IFTTT does for you on a daily or weekly basis. You can also opt to get a notification on your phone when each of your recipes run, just to check everything is working.

Like most people, I find it difficult to write effectively about myself.
