"One of the best free web-based tools on the block." —The Verge

Simple to use taskmaster automates mundane repetitive tasks on internet. Well worth the free pricetag.
I have several recipes I really like and I am impressed with Workflow integration. However, you cannot publish/share recipes through the app. Worse, friends are unable to find published recipes weeks after it was published. For this reason I do not encourage friends to download the app. Other improvements the app needs: - A compact list of recipes (one recipe per line). - A way to sort recipes by name or date last run. - A compact history/timeline option (only one line per event). --
Its a really good app if you want regular update on your favorite news topic or want to organize you tweet or Facebook notification.
Great application which is really practical. Set it up to your needs & you are done. It's all automatic
Any Rachio and ecobee3 recipes fail to do anything. I'd love to get notifications and to possibly track run times of things, but if I can't get a simple notification after an hour plus wait, I'm deleting the app. The extra star is for the nice interface. Update: With no support for additional features coming from these vendors, that's another reason not to bother. Great idea, but it's apparently not catching on enough with some third parties to provide more services.
Always cautious downloading apps. If expands the idea of social media, and increases reach for those that depend on SEO marketing to increase reach. I intend on dedicating a lot of time into future IF recipes. Great app for increasing reach.
IFTT makes my life easier in so many ways. It took me a long time to figure out what I could use it for because most of the examples I saw were automation of social media or business workflows that didn't apply to me but now, huge parts of my daily record rely on IFTT. Example: I am required to do monthly reports at work. I've linked Todoist and Google Drive so when I complete a task, it is logged in a spreadsheet. At conferences, I use Twitter to take notes & save attendees comments. IFTT watches my Twitter account and saves everything I Tweet to a spreadsheet. I love IFTT but it does have some rough spots. If you're not great at applying their naming and script logic to what you want to happen, creating your own recipes (rather than copying from their excellent library) is difficult. Some of the services promoted as having integrations only have one that isn't very useful. (Outlook, I'm looking at you. Finally, the integrations don't seem to trigger smoothly. I will have times when recipes don't trigger much later or only when I open the app. Not sure why. But still, LOVE IFTT!
Just learning is very cool
It's easy to build recipes. And there are so many channels. But am having trouble to get one recipe with proximity notification to fire in time.
Hands down one of the best apps you'll ever download.
