Have you heard of IFTTT? No, we didn’t fall asleep on our keyboard… it’s an app that connects two apps or services into a personalized recipe of delight.
For example, let’s say you want to remind yourself to take out the trash on Thursday night. An average Joe would just put a reminder in his phone with a two-chime alert. But extraordinary Joe takes his app and programs it so that if it’s Thursday at 7PM, the lightbulbs in his house will start flashing red in every room to remind him that it’s time to take the garbage out. Now granted, extraordinary Joe has WiFi programmable lightbulbs, but this example goes to show just how extensive the app can get with what you want it to do.
And if you need help coming up with your own recipes, IFTTT has a list for you to use and become inspired by its capabilities
