IFTTT Applets; In today's world, a smartphone is the best friend, if used wisely! You do not agree ? However, we hardly ever use our phones to their full potential, thanks to the abundance of apps and features. IFTTT, the online login and automation service, helps solve this problem by automating small tasks for us.
IFTTT, which stands for "IF This Then That", is the free way to make all your apps and services talk to each other. How does this help? Let's say if your mail app can tell your calendar that you've received a new email with meeting details, your calendar can create an event for the meeting itself.
For example, you can send a message to remind you later when you get a call during a meeting. However, that is not the real beauty of IFTTT. It contains little programs called recipes, which anyone can install and automate a task like magic.
It sounds incredible? Let's talk about IFTTT recipes that can help you automate mundane tasks on Android and iOS. I chose them wisely to help improve productivity so you can find time for enjoyable things.
Our free mobile apps make it easy to use all of our features and give you full control of your automations anytime, anywhere. We are the leading low-code automation software that offers a mobile app, giving you amazing instant access to your applets on the go.
Although our apps are completely free to use and access, they offer additional features such as exclusive mobile services, customizable mobile notifications and much more. If you haven't already, download our app on iOS or Android to get started. If you're still new to IFTTT, check out our welcome guide for some tips and an overview of how to create your first applet.
How to Install IFTTT Applets
As mentioned above, IFTTT helps you connect all your services, devices, and apps so they can start tasks automatically. You can enable or disable applets from the official website or app. Furthermore, IFTTT also allows you to create your own applet, giving you complete freedom.
Alternatively, you can simply search for the recipe on the IFTTT app for Android or iOS, then set up the applet on your device. Let's see the steps:
- Download and install IFTTT from the App Store or Play Store.
- Open IFTTT and sign up or log in to your IFTTT account.
To use IFTTT, you will need an account that can be created for free from the official website or through the app, which is available for Android and iOS platforms. After that, explore the vast catalog of applets and use the ones you need. Applets can be managed from the official website and app.
- Browse or search for applets or recipes on IFTTT (using the search icon displayed on the top bar of the IFTTT app).
- Finally, if you want to set other options for the applet (if the applet has certain options), click the gear icon to do so.

You won't have to remember to check your weather app every morning because you'll instantly see a push notification. Seeing the weather report first thing in the morning makes it easier to think about what to wear while you go about the rest of your morning routine.
The note, the button and the camera widget are some of the most used services on mobile phones, since they allow you to launch an applet with just one touch. Put the button widget on your home or lock screen and activate a call to get out of a sticky situation. Quickly write a note to send yourself an email, or add a quick event to your Google calendar with the Notes widget, or send yourself a receipt with the camera.
Lock your doors, close the garage, turn off the lights, or turn on your home security system using location services as a trigger. Simply entering or exiting a geo-fenced location allows you to launch any applet or event. You can easily turn on the lights when you get home or even add music to welcome you home with a relaxing atmosphere.
Location service can also be a powerful way to let others know you're safe, track your work hours based on time spent in a specific area, or anything else you can think of.
