Review IFTTT

Jay Feldman
9.2Excellent
Powerful functionality, intuitive interface, modern design
Lags a bit
IFTTT for Android is a very interesting idea for an app, and useful too. Basically, it’s a search and automation tool, but with some really advanced capability. It’s sort of like Google alerts, or a virtual personal assistant, but netter. Interested? Read on.
To my knowledge, IFTTT is one of a kind. You can set up custom searches for any of the affiliated services, and whenever there’s activity that matches your search query, you’ll get an email or text alerting you about it. So, for example, I set a string for Pandas + Flickr, and whenever new pics of pandas are posted, I can get alerts for it. Naturally, you want to be careful with your strings. Be sure to make them specific so you don’t get alerted needlessly. But it’s a really cool and effective way to get updates on the stuff you are most interested in. The part I love, is the ability to search specific sites for your specific triggers and interests. You can even set up calendar and device related triggers.
The interface is very simple and intuitive. And there are lots of preset combinations that you can subscribe to, or you can easily set your own. Everything is based on the simple equation of "This + That = gimmie what I want or do what I asked". Easy peasy! It all ran nice and smooth for me with no glitches or issues. There are oodles of custom triggers, actions, channels and ingredients. IFTTT calls them all “recipes;” just set all your ingredients to your liking, fast and easy, and you’re good to go.
IFTTT, pronounced ‘gift’ but without the ‘g’, truly is a gift. It makes search and discovery a pleasure. There’s a lot of functionality here and I really only scratched the surface. In short, this app is definitely worth looking at.
