IFTTT’s new DO apps – Do Button, Do Camera, and Do Note – are easy to use tools for simplifying your every day life. These new apps are well-designed, fun to use, and a true testament to how far the re-branding of this once standalone web service has come.
IFTTT is best known for their “if this, then that” functionality, which is now applied through “Recipes in each of their Do apps. Recipes are the formulas that IFTTT uses to complete an action. When you press a button in one of the Do apps, the recipe tells that app what to do in response.
You can’t send a message with the Do Button yet but you can send an email, Tweet, and turn your lights off without getting out of bed. The Do Button is the most versatile of all three apps and allows users to create the most custom recipes. Do Button actions (just a few of the most popular) can be performed using your Gmail, Twitter, and Phillips or WeMo channels.
For those of you unfamiliar with how IFTTT works, channels are the services connected to IFTTT and they include DropBox, FitBit, Google Drive, Instagram and an additional 165 more in all. You activate channels by signing into your accounts.
Do Camera has made it simple to share photos to Facebook and other forms of social media, back up and organize your digital photos, and remember restaurants and other points of interest. Do Camera does this by utilizing your Facebook, DropBox, and Evernote (among other social media) channels.
Do Note has improved upon your already great Evernote app and Google Calendar by making it even easier to log and keep track of to-do lists and important dates and events. Almost every recipe created within any of the Do apps channels require two steps or less and your done.
Like I said before, you have over 169 channels to choose from so these are all just examples of some the new and exciting things you can do with the latest and greatest app pack from IFTTT. The number of Recipe’s you can cook up is almost endless.
These new apps are a huge step forward in IFTTT’s re-branding as a multi-service company. All of IFTTT’s new apps can be downloaded for free from both the App Store and Google Play store.
