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

Welcome to the Future
IFTTT allow you to automate many tasks, from getting notifications when someone changes your house thermostat setting, to automatically uploading photos to your favorite sharing site, to getting a notification if it's doing to rain
The app by itself does some pretty handy things, but the real power comes to play when you have Internet of Things (IoT) devices connected. Get a notification when your garage door is opened (Wemo Maker), turn on a light in your house as you approach (Wemo, others), get a notification when your home energy exceeds a threshold. The choices are almost limitless once you get a few connected devices.
If your into tinkering, a WiFi enabled Arduino or Spark 'Photon' can interface any sensor to IFTTT giving you the capability to monitor almost anything. If my front door opens, I get a notification, if my internet goes down, I get notified. I even get daily voltage measurements on the battery in my RV so I know when it needs changing. Pool temperature? Just a click away.
Give IFTTT a try. You just might find a use or two for it.
Saves SO much time!
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!
Enjoying it so far
I really like the way the app is working with our Hue lights and Echo, though overall I wish there was additional logic capabilities and conditional factors you could add to the rules or set it for families, so rules could cooperate (if there is, I have not been able to figure it out yet). For example: turn a light on when I am in the vicinity but only if it's after sunset, turn certain lights off when I leave, but only if my husband is not in the vicinity, turn on specific bulbs set up instead of full rooms, set a light to turn on at a preset level or color instead of the setting it was last on. Things like that would make it even more useful with respect to what we most use it for currently.
