“If This, Then That”
IFTTT (pronounced like gift without the g) is a web service that automates a whole bunch of tasks by taking one thing, a trigger, and doing another thing, an action. A perfect example:
When a new Craigslist search for “Fremont apartment priced $1000-$1500” shows up, add a new Inbox item to OmniFocus via Mail Drop.
So that’s it, really. IFTTT has been around for a little while, so there’s a ton of OmniFocus examples already. The example above is very specific. That’s the really powerful, interesting part. You can browse some more generic recipes below.
These are just a few — check out IFTTT for more.
