The IFTTT app connects you to your IFTTT account.  IFTTT stands for “If This Then That”.  It is an Internet service that connects other Internet services.  You can think of it as a bridge between platforms.   Through the app you have access to everything on the IFTTT website.  You also have a very nice log interface that shows you just what’s happened with your “recipes”.

A Recipe is a connection between two services.  There are currently 116 services that allow IFTTT connections.  From connecting Facebook to Twitter or connecting your smartphone camera to your dropbox, IFTTT has the connections you need.

It does take a little getting used to when you begin. However, there are thousands of recipes already out there waiting for you to use.   Once you start automating tasks with IFTTT you will be amazed at what IFTTT will accomplish for you.
