A very interesting concept – IFTTT

In: Uncategorized

16 Feb 2015

I just discovered a new web application named IFTTT.

The concept is so simple and so powerful at the same time.

It allows to create simple rule : If This Then That

Where “This” is a trigger and “That” is an action. Both happens in what they call “Channels”. Channels are applications like Facebook, Linkedin, Weather, Email, etc.

In a nutshell, you can build an integration between third parties in a matter of seconds.

Here are some examples of rules :

– Show your support for the Texas Rangers on Twitter every time a game starts

– Post videos from your YouTube favorites playlist to Tumblr

– Build a Twitter List from a specific #hashtag

I also encourage you to create an account and try it.
