Pros: IFTTT is a great service that allows you to automate repetitive tasks without knowing how to code. It is really good at several things including: 1) Recipe Marketplace- If you are new to IFTTT you can easily get started with their marketplace of applets or Recipes. Using recipes (as they are called) you can easily connect services and begin to create new tasks. The good thing is that there are many different options. 2) Automatically posting Social posts - If you connect your social media networks, you can post from one site to the other automatically. So you could theoretically post from Twitter to Facebook and vice versa. Really good feature. 3) Home automation - most people will agree smart home automation is a mess but IFTTT bridges the gap allow you to connect different smart home devices to get almost true automation.

Cons: I feel like IFTTT actions do not always work, for example if you have a service running and you encounter an error, you have to delete the recipe and start all over. Some recipes are pointless, the quality in the marketplace really varies. You have to test before committing to any recipe. Have had instances where an Tweet is not shared to Facebook or vice versa but IFTTT says the recipe was run. There are instances where you do need to know a bit of coding to get create recipes that have a lot of triggers and in some cases even pay someone to get things done for you. For the most part its easy to get started but you may need to be a coder to create some complex recipes that have multiple tasks and triggers.

If you find yourself repeatedly doing the same action - look into this.

Pros: Over the last couple of years, IFTTT has begun to focus a lot more on smart home automation - but there are still some really great triggers available. Using simple logic triggers you can make two different (or even the same) apps communicate and complete actions for you. There is a great user-generated base of ideas for things you can do with the application! It's a great place to start if you either aren't particularly comfortable with technology, or just want to explore what can be done. Some of my favourite actions are - sending me a text when it's supposed to rain or snow the next day. Sending a text with a quote of the day. When I clap for an article on Medium - it will pin the article to a board on Pinterest. Tweet instagram photos with a particular hashtag. Sync your profile picture on Facebook and Instagram. The list goes on. There are also "Buttons" which are manually triggered actions, where you can have an icon available on your phones home screen to - for example - text your partner that you are on your way home. Love it - couldn't live without it.

Cons: Zapier has begun overtaking it in the volume of apps available to integrate with. But - if you have a smart home, or multiple smart-devices - IFTTT will be a valuable tool for you.

Pros: IFTTT brings free automation/integrations to a huge variety of apps and offers a pretty straightforward user interface to do it, which makes it a great way for anyone to start using automation. One of the key benefits it has over some other popular automation platforms (aside from being free) is that it has a fully featured, native mobile apps for iOS and Google Play, and even the super helpful Apple Watch app. The big standouts benefits for me are the ability to work with iPhone stock apps in a direct manner, and the extensive list of supported home automation services, which many alternative platforms don't include.

Cons: IFTTT is better for home and lifestyle use than business use. It lacks support for a lot of enterprise software systems, and the ones it does support have fairly thin offerings for pre-built integrations/automations. The service, while free, also has been known to go out more frequently (and for extended periods of time) so it's not great for critical applications. The other big limitation is that IFTTT supports one-step automations, but anything needing conditional input or multiple steps can't be done directly in the app (although more savvy users can connect it to other apps to simulate that type of workflow).

I could write this review, or I could probably get IFTTT to do it for me. :)

Pros: I'd want to say that I've been using IFTTT before anyone else knew about it. Okay, maybe not "anyone", but I've been using it since they only had a few channels, and thought it was the best thing ever. I know there are now different competitors out there that charge you for usage, but IFTTT is the O.G. of the task automation and linking up actions of the Internet of Things (IOT). Super easy to configure, and possibilities are endless.

Cons: I've had some issues with IFTTT that the trigger wouldn't fire properly, but it's hard to pinpoint it to the software when it could be the case of hardware (in this case blink1).

Very useful for adding functionality to my mobile devices and apps

Pros: Automatically notifies me when there is any change made to any of my shared calendars Automatically notifies me when an Alexa timer goes off, when I'm in another room in the house Automatically sends me an email if it is going to rain tomorrow Automatically gives me a notification at 6am every day with the weather report Automatically gives me a notification if my CO or Smoke detectors detect an alarm situation Very easy to use and setup

Cons: I wish there were even more "canned" templates, as they are much easier to use than creating your own custom templates (although it is possible to do that as well).

Pros: Love this app. There are so many apps available to use in your applets and they seem to constantly add new ones. Also like that we have the choice of copying applets made by others, copying and then modifying those made by others, or building our own from scratch.

Cons: Would like a faster/more structured way to browse applets that others have made. Would also like to be able to get some kind of feedback/tips/help to figure out why some applets don't seem to work or stopped working. Maybe that's just a matter of a brief note or tip published by the creator (or anyone?) on the applet details page.

Pros: Although IFTTT is the most basic automation platform, the simple UI offers benefits that other apps can't. - Picking the pre-made triggers is easiest on this platform. - it's like, shopping for automations - simple UI offers automation ideas that you haven't thought of Integrates with other Automation tools (Drafts5 & Workflow) to complete advanced automations

Cons: None. But, actions/triggers are limited to whatever is available by the software companies. So, can't customize with additional coding, like zapier's formatter. But I'm not a programmer and can barely write JavaScript

Pros: It's easy to set up and use, and once you do, its automation is the most powerful out there.

Any two things you want to link together can be done using this tool.

Emails, notes, messages, home control, ordering a taxi, setting up alarms and reminders...you name it.

Cons: If the link you want is not already created in their available library, you need to set it up yourself, which can be tricky sometimes.

Creating loops is possible, which can accumulate junk email in your inbox for instance.

Overall: I have my personal secretary using this tool in my pocket, running on its own in the background, making my life easier.

Pros: IFTTT has integrations with pretty much any service you can think of and facilitates setting up chained actions. "If I get a Gmail email then send X to this other service". It can deal with home automation solutions or pure SaaS products as well. Overall IFTTT has saved me a significant amount of time in manual processes that I've automated with it.

Cons: IFTTT could beef up some of their debugging and troubleshooting options - when a given flow isn't working it's not always obvious at first why your flow is failing.

Pros: This is the single best and most important application I have running on my cell phone other than slack. Some examples of configurations I have are for logging inbound and outbound calls to my calendar, turning on WiFi when I arrive home (using geofencing), and for finding my phone. I've started developing some of my one logic for it as well (not done yet), but it is so far reasonable to do and reminds me very much of serverless application development.

Cons: Running the iOS app on iPad is ridiculous -- it treats the whole (giant) screen like a huge iPhone. They really could have done that better. Works great on multiple Android phones.

Pros: Let me start with the abbreviation, it means "if this then that" for those who did not figure that out by now. I use the app to keep record of my daily visit to different places. The program keep recording when I entered to specific areas on map and exited. This is very handy tool to calculate how much time you spend at specific time. I also use it to get notifications whenever top apps on Itues gets discounts.

Cons: There is one major flaw with the app which is not really apps fault. iPhones are bit restrictive by nature. So you can't really control everything with this program such as screen brightness or volume control.

Pros: It makes your life much more easy - you connect services and then you make simple rules that works for you. For example: IF you post status update on facebook IFTTT can automaticly post it on your facebook. Trigger and action can be almost anything - call, sms, email and so on. Definitely worth checking!

Cons: For my biggest problem is that you can only do one thing at a time. If one trigger could run more actions it would be perfect!

Pros: I have used IFTTT for personal and business purposes. There are so many useful integration options that help you save so much time with social media management. I have all of my business social media integrated with my Instagram, so when I post there, it posts everywhere! The integrations are so easy to set up for almost anything.

Cons: I don't have a single complaint. IFTTT offers great service and customer service.

Pros: This little tool lets you create so many awesome workflows for you to automate so many different things. I use it to turn my lights on at a specific time to a specific percentage of power, warn me if it's gonna rain the next day, and send a text to wife when I leave work. Really anything you can think of IFTTT can create an integration.

Cons: There really isn't anything bad I could say about IFTTT. Sometimes you wish it could do something with a device you have that it just doesn't have much for, but you can't expect it to have EVERYTHING.

Pros: IFTTT, especially recently, has added so many integrations to things, making it easy to connect the most random things together. Even if an integration doesn't exist, IFTTT supports web hooks, which is super easy for programming your own connectors.

Cons: IFTTT integration with Alexa is somewhat lacking. This is somewhat understandable though, due to the complexity of the Alexa system.

Comments: IFTTT gives the facility to use recipes already made by other users and also the ability to create your own recipes depending on your needs. It has a wide support for almost any popular web application on the Internet, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Buffer, and many more! I'm using IFTTT to automate these social media accounts for my Start-up and is working synchronously without any effort!

Pros: Huge array of services (channels) that can integrate with this platform, with lots of example 'recipes' from the community to inspire ideas. Allows integration between two or more different services with ease without the need for any programming knowledge or similar in a 'set and forget' style way. And maybe the best of all is that it's mostly free to use.

Cons: Some recipes are no longer working, most of the times because the services integrated changed something and it kinda takes some time for ifttt to be aware of this and remove the recipe.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a shot! Look over the suggested formulas they have available (for free!) and you'll end up finding new ways for IFTTT to simplify every aspect of your life.

Comments: IFTTT recipes allow me to focus on my work rather than constantly check this or that or write myself a reminder to do x later. I use IFTTT for business and personal things and it keeps me productive and on-task while IFTTT does the work in the background.

Pros: TONS of apps available for recipes! I've been using IFTTT for about three years or so, and the app keeps growing and offering more options for users. They make it easy to set up by taking you step by step through the recipe creation process and even recommend recipes based on what's trending, what other recipes you've created, etc. I periodically receive an email from IFTTT with new recipe suggestions. Always new and creative ones!

Cons: If you're not careful, you can get lost in the rabbit hole of IFTTT recipes because there are so many! So this isn't actually a bad thing, but remember this app is to help you stay productive, so keep that in mind while browsing recipes.

Pros: There are so many possiblities with IFTTT! I use it for so many automation tools to make things do tasks on their own. I use it in my personal life and for work. Anyone with any home automation this is a must have! There are so many integrations with different tools and software.

Cons: There are a few suggestions I'd like implemented at some point. For example with different applets I've made I'd like to group them together and have the ability to turn the applet groups off as a group rather than having to turn off each applet individually.

Comments: We are a small catering company that receives lots of inquiries every summer. I use my phone a lot to keep track of these calls and IFTTT is a helpful part of that toolkit. In combination with Pushbullet it allows me to sit at my desk and still catch incoming calls and text messages. I use it to keep a call log, turn on and off wifi when i leave the house, remind me and my team about impending rain (We need to keep our equipment covered and dry) and most importantly send my wife an email and text whenever my phone is below 15% battery. At the time a lot of these things seemed like frivolous extras, and now I can see that they are a a real benefit to my work flow. Perhaps the most important is when I need to call the work day to a close. My phone automatically switches into silent mode at 8:30pm every night except for nights we have events. In addition to f.lux on my computer this is a further indication that it is really time to go to sleep.

Pros: Free Recipes provided by others Works every time

Cons: recipes not that complex, need to make your own if you want more power (not really a con)

Pros: There are so many wonderful things to say about this application. It is so easy to connect your products together and get them talking to each other. There are tons of prebuilt apps built, and it is fairly easy and straightforward to create your own. I use this at work and at home.

Cons: The only negative about IFTT is that not all of the business applications are on this platform. This ecosystem tends to be more focused on home automation products, which is good but doesn't satisfy everything I need this type of software to do. This will be fixed over time as more and more systems continue to build into IFTTT.

If this happens then do this! That says it all.

Pros: There is no better way to describe this application than with an example: If I publish something on Instagram, I need it to be published on my twitter and facebook account, with a recipe from IFTTT, it's quick and easy, connect your accounts, create a recipe or use a recipe already created and you're all set.

Cons: I didn't see anything against it, it's free! and its creators say it will always be free. as it is free because sometimes the reactions of the application are a little delayed, but in the panel you can easily see the activity of each recipe.

Pros: Connects to Tons of other applications, and allows some extremely unconventional workflows between various companies. If I would have had the skills I would have made something like this company. The ability to connect digital products to automatically act or execute with a given trigger and content is awesome!

Cons: This kind of tool is, from what I can guess, most helpful to smaller companies and Ma and Pa type operations. And for that reason the ones that have the tightest budget to work with and will probably not like the recurring and potentially additive costs. I would imagine that any larger companies would have a programmer able to handle any thing they need in a manner that is more secure and controlled. I personally think that should they make this platform free they would see a huge upswing of users and gain a much larger platform to utilize for advertising, If the cost wasn't there they would see some seriously excellent usage and gain creative insights and data surrounding the over needs of the various industries that use it

Pros: This opens up a whole new world to what you can automate and even help you to streamline some of your processes. It's amazing the amount of other apps that integrate with IFTTT. I'd highly recommend for people to play around on their website and see what they can automate in their business, their studies and every other thing in their personal life. It's great for reminders, collecting data, syncing apps and doing social posts. There's some really creative and fun applets!

Cons: Sometimes the functionality is limited to what you want to try achieve and there's no way to create custom items yourself..

Pros: IFTTT is an amazing starting point if you want to learn about automation and connect basic apps to make things convenient for you and save some time along the way. It can do a lot with all the applets and connections it has but also had it's open limitations!

Cons: Even though there is a huge library of recipes/applets available many of the uncommon apps are still not supported within the platform.

Pros: IFTTT is a programmable technology for people who know nothing about programming. IFTTT helps with automating repeatable tasks. If you find yourself ever doing something as often as once every day, you should probably automate it with IFTTT. Chances are, somebody has already done something you need and finding a receipt for that is a matter of 5 minutes.

Cons: The only issue with IFTTT is that not every service you might need is compatible with it. Sure, 99% of apps and services are supported, but you'll remember that 1% exception.

Comments: We utilize IFTTT to supplement our free version of Envoy Visitor Management with extra features, like notification emails and confidentiality agreement repositories - features we'd normally have to pay for to have Envoy take care of them. It's a great solution and works very well, and we've since expanded our initial IFTTT setup to include extra fields that Envoy is collecting into our notification emails so that they are more useful to the receiving party.

Pros: Free is free, can't complain there! IFTTT is very robust in the number and type of actions you can make it perform, as well as the different types of integrations between other software systems (such as Envoy).

Cons: Some notifications can be delayed, for instance when someone checks into Envoy, occasionally it can take up to 15 minutes to receive the notification email. I'm not sure if it's a limitation of Envoy or IFTTT, but it happens. It doesn't really matter to us though as our notifications are used for logging purposes and not real-time activities, so it hasn't been an issue.

Pros: We tried several paid tools for automating basic tasks and marketing but IFTTT ended up being one of the best because it's free and simple to use. Reliably executes the automated actions and helps us turn monotonous drone work into a back-burner process for the AI. We use it to bookmark blog posts, tweet updates, log data on sheets, etc. Lots of usability and you can't be a no-cost, no-hassle tool.

Cons: Obviously there are some limitations to the free features but it's pretty robust otherwise. You're somewhat limited by standard features unless you can do some light programming. My team sets up most of the workflows and we haven't run into very many things that we can't do.

Pros: IFTTT helps with life, honestly. You can automate so many processes in no time, and once you set up your first IFTTT you don't know when to stop! IFTTT is a must-have in marketer's (and not only) toolbox.

Cons: It takes some time to discover the power of automation of processes, and the app can be overwhelming at first.

Comments: When I discovered IFTTT, I immediately put the app to use. The user experience is great, and the continued updates are so helpful. My favorite recipe is the ability to auto post an Instagram as a native image on Twitter.

Pros: Pro: timesaver, hands down.

Cons: Con: sometimes the recipes don't work as stated.

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend using recipes that are created by the platforms themselves versus those created by others.

Pros: The simplicity of it. When applied well, automation can make your life radically more efficient - both in a professional and personal context. IFTTT presents these possibilities to users in a simple and easy to understand way. You can select existing automation flows by just selecting tiles and flipping a switch.

Cons: I've set up multiple automation flows with IFTTT over the last few years but none of them have run more than a couple of weeks, for the simple reason that they didn't work or didn't work consistently. The idea of automation is that things you need to happen, happen automatically... every time. If that is not the case, you can't count on it and the whole idea kind of comes crumbling down. It's only as valuable as its reliability and that is just not good enough with IFTTT.

Good and simple automation tool.

Pros: Very simple to set "If this then that" actions across the web. Many of the actions are already there and you just have to set them up to suit your needs.

Cons: If there is no predefined template of the IFTTT action you want to set, it might take some time and tests to set it correctly.

Cons: I can't connect multiple Facebook pages to it in order to run Applets with them simultaneously, only one Facebook page per one IFTTT account.

The same exact platform is also what we use in my organization to automate aspects of our social media portfolio. The scope of automation here is really fantastic.

Cons: Not the most approachable at times. This could be confusing for a newer user for IFTTT.

Overall: Automate processes using triggers and conditionals from IFTTT.

Pros: The basic setup, ease of integration, help site make IFTTT a product with great potential.

Cons: IFTTT Just misses some of the marks. For example there isn't a 100% guarantee that it will fire an action for every API call that is issued. Sometime it just doesn't fire the action at all. The point of the software is to monitor and do something after an API post. It is disappointment is doesn't do that better.

Pros: IFTTT literally does the job of a full time employee. It can be configured to do a wide range of functions that will be automatically taken care of after the initial setup. IFTTT helps you focus on the content creation while the promotion part is in automation. I personally use it to share the newly published blogs on social media platforms.

Cons: The image thumbnail fetching for social sharing sometimes doesn't work as it's supposed to. Another area where it needs improvement is the capabilities to do some manual overrides in the automated applets.
