LIFTTT = Location Triggers + IFTTT.
If you love IFTTT and you love magical things to happen based on your current location, then LIFTTT is the app for you!
With LIFTTT, you can add your favorite places and specify what type of IFTTT recipe you would like to trigger while maintaining total control of so many different settings & customization options!
Getting started with LIFTTT is simple
1. Add a new trigger
2. On the map screen, choose the location via map where you would like the event to occur or use your current location
3. Customize your Location Trigger's settings! Whether you are arriving or leaving, how often the event triggers or even the days of week and time of the day...we have accounted for everything!
4. Enter the text necessary to trigger your desired IFTTT recipe

5 stars for what you can do, -1 star for the interface
If you're familiar with IFTTT and are pretty good with figuring out interfaces, this app will make you happy. Turn on your devices when you're nearly home, send an email to mom when you arrive home safely, or tweet every time you're at your favorite bar. The possibilities are endless!
However the app is not very focused... The home screen is blank save for a confusing circle of... other apps? I launched this app to use it, not to find others. The sidebar menu is similarly cluttered, with multiple social media calls to action blocking the functionality.
The actual functionality is mostly usable, with some interface quirks that don't make much sense. Why not use standard iOS interface elements? Why not riff off of Apple's geo-fencing interface in the reminders app?
Still for what this app allows me to do I am super happy with it! Thank you to the developers, I have been waiting for IFTTT to support location based reminders for the longest time. Now I don't need to wait!
A complete device changer...
IFTTT is a real game changer for me... This app has opened up the flexibility of my device to perform so many web based tasks for me while I'm on other projects... A lot of apps are really cool for their intended purpose, IFTTT takes automation to a whole new level... I ♡ this app...
Makes IFTTT even better
Why location triggers is not available for IFTTT is beyond me. This app fills that void perfectly. Day and time limits are great add-ons. Well worth the in-app purchase to make unlimited recipes.
