What people are saying:
"Short for 'If This Then That' - which neatly describes the function of the product. It is essentially a giant switchboard to connect disparate services, anything from Facebook to text messages to telephone calls." —The New York Times
"One of the best free web-based tools on the block." —The Verge
"IFTTT is giving power to people who don’t know the first thing about coding. In a way, it offers a new breed of programming, one far more people can grasp." —Wired

I got this app because of its feature to notify you when an applet is activated. After setting up applet you cannot toggle receive notification because it’s not even there in the applets settings. Even though I selected to receive notifications when setting up the applet, I don’t receive any. Please fix. I got this app so I can monitor my light switches while I’m out. My kids are intrigued with them. If it’s turned on during the day, I would love to get that notification so I can turn it off on my phone and not waste electricity.
Why gave they made us so difficult? It used to be simple. It no longer work
This was working so well at first and now every time I try to upload a picture to twitter from Instagram it always says applet failed. I even tried deleting the app and redone loading it and that didn’t work either.
How are you going to take away the ability to rename my widgets on Today View
The app is not at all intuitive and the layout is atrocious. Please find some better people to work on app design.
Tried logging in with each of the options and nothing works.
I miss the old UI. It was intuitive and clean. The new UI is just needlessly confusing. I can no longer see all my applets in one place. The main screen is oversimplified to the point that it’s more complicated, if that makes any sense. There’s a giant black bar at the bottom taking up probably 15% of the screen just to say “Get More.” It was better as a small (+) button on the top right. The widgets interface is awful. I have about 20 different “buttons” for various tasks, but there are only 4 buttons in the widget so I have to scroll through multiple pages of randomly organized buttons. And each individual button only leaves room for a small amount of text. I have a dozen different buttons for my LIFX light scenes. For example, one is “Bedroom - Cool Daylight - 80% - 60mins” but the widget only shows “Bedroom - Cool Day...” The IFTTT widget should look more like the Apple Shortcuts widget - a basic 2x2 grid with plenty of room for text, and a button to expand the widget to show all of your buttons. Please redesign the widget because it’s incredibly frustrating to use. I don’t understand why you guys haven’t at least made it expandable.
I downloaded app So that I could link my inst photos to twitter as native photos. It does not allow me to do because of lack of “notes” widgets. After following instructions to add them I do not have any of the icons on my iphone. It is blank under widgets. And there is no way to contact anyone!!
This is a game changer! Do you wish you could connect apps together? Like turn the thermostat up when you are half an hour from getting home? How about running your roomba when you leave home? How about getting an alert when the weather report says it’s going to freeze tonight? This is crazy cool!!
