Android users that have been jealous of IOS owners being able to access the popular and very useful IFTTT “if this, then that” application, are sure to be pleased to know that they can now download it from the Google Play Store for free.
The IFTTT app enables users to create powerful connections with one simple statement, if this then that, using channels which are services like Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, as well as devices like Philips Hue, Belkin WeMo, and UP by Jawbone.
Once installed you can then created recipes or download already created ones by other iFTTT users. Recipes are connections between your Channels that unlock entirely new ways for your services and Android devices to communicate with each other. Check out the tutorial below to learn more.
“The this part of a Recipe is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.” The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”
Pieces of data from a Trigger are called Ingredients. For example, the Ingredients of an Email Trigger could be: subject, body, attachment, received date, and the sender’s address.”
