IFTTT, also known as If This Then That, is a free web-based marketing service that connects two apps to complete a task on one app. With IFTTT, users can create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets, which are triggered by changes in web services like Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Pricing:

IFTTT does not list pricing on their website. The online service is free for the public. To access the IFTTT service, go to ifttt.com and create your account. Interested users can also sign in with their Facebook or Google accounts.

Review

Tonamel - reddit.com

Been using IFTTT for a couple months, and I'm getting frustrated. IFTTT says on their website: IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections - but the connections don't seem to be powerful at all. They seem to be bare minimum at best, and may make me give up on it altogether... I just want to say that I LOVE the idea behind IFTTT, but its triggers/actions are so simplistic that it doesn't seem like it's going to be worth using in the long run. Have I missed something important? I WANT to use it, but it doesn't seem like it can actually do the things I need.

I've given up on it altogether. I stay tuned to this subreddit because I feel this is the right direction we're all heading but we've just arrived too early to the party and all the chairs are still sitting on the tables.

Got it all set up and works great.
