IFTTT revisited

I love technology that fills the nooks and crannies of our daily lives and one of my long-time favorites is a web service called If This Then That or IFTTT for short.

This free resource helps you put the Internet to work for you by creating conditional statements called recipes that integrate your online life in amazing ways.

For instance, you can use a recipe that automatically creates a reminder on your iPhone whenever you star an email in Gmail or text your wife whenever you leave work.

IFTTT works with 160 different Internet services and has a treasure trove of recipes that have been created by millions of users.

If your imagination is willing, you can create your own custom recipes and share them with the IFTTT community.

IFTTT is a free service with apps for iPhones, iPads and Android devices to really leverage your technology in meaningful ways.

If you’ve never explored the IFTTT world, do yourself a favor and go to and join in on the fun and productivity.
