What is IFTTT?
At IFTTT, we believe that everything works better together! Our app allows you to do more with over 700 different apps and services, including Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote, Fitbit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant. We connect services together into Applets, automations that allow you to do things your apps and devices can't do on their own.
IFTTT is short for "If This Then That", and rhymes with "Gift."
An Applet connects two or more apps or devices together. It's an automation or integration/connection between two services that enables you to do something that those services couldn't do on their own.
- Applets are composed of triggers and actions
- Triggers tell an Applet to start, and actions are the end result of an Applet run
To use an Applet, you'll need to create a free IFTTT account. Then you'll need to connect your apps and devices to IFTTT, so we can help them talk to each other.
Here's a short tutorial that shows you how easy it is to enable an Applet.
