WIG: IFTTT

by general

If this, then that. This is an easy way to make your own service by connecting other existing platforms with simple conditional statements. The platforms you can connect can be pretty much everything we use such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, or Google Spreadsheets. You can use applets that other users made already or you can also make your own one. I think this is a very powerful service as it gives anyone freedom to calibrate platforms without knowing to code, and it has a lot of potentials to have any functionality. For example, I used to use “If I enter/leave into the school(using my GPS data), then add the timestamp on the google sheet”. This was for getting data on how much time I usually spend at school. And the very simple applet I am still using is “if it rains tomorrow, then email myself.” It is really easy to connect all the apps you use, and fun to do!
