iPhone can now IFTTT!
There is now an iPhone app for IFTTT, allowing you to create new recipes for automatic actions and event logging. Rather than relying on a third party notification service you can now opt to use notifications to the IFTTT App.
IFTTT ((if this, then that: ifttt.com)) is one of my favorite web services — I use it to dump ADN ((app.net – http://app.net/)) and Facebook status messages I’ve written into a Google Drive document, send CERT advisories to my iPhone via Prowl, and one of my favorites: starred posts on ADN, pinboard ((Great bookmark service: pinboard.in)) bookmarks marked “to read” and saved articles in Feedly get saved to Evernote and Pocket.
Having said that, IFTTT is my current achilles heel and I am hoping that they find a way to make sure some reasonable continuity of business is in the cards through some sort of service model. I would pay for the service as it is, especially now that my hot selfies can be auto-posted to my tumblr.
As with everything IFTTT, you’ll have to get creative to truly take advantage of the service’s three new channels: Photos, Reminders, and Contacts. For example, you could have IFTTT create a new Google Calendar event every time you add a contact, so you can keep track of when you meet people, or you could have IFTTT post every selfie you take to a Tumblr blog you’ve created. Yep, there’s an IFTTT trigger that activates only for photos taken using your phone’s front-facing camera. You can optionally receive push notifications when any of your recipes run their course.
It’s nice to have a pillbox that accurately reflects the nature of things.
I can count the number of times I’ve seen a man playing Unchained Melody on a sawblade with one hand.
