I love If This Than That because it goes along with my favorite concept of “Set It and Forget It.” The idea of automating things once and then never have to think about them again is obviously very appealing. You can do basic things like automatically sending a tweet at a certain time every day to market a product, or adding every Foursquare checkin to your Google Calendar for a contextual record of where you’ve been. You can also get more complicated like getting a text message alert anytime you get an email from an important person (great for when you don’t want the distractions of an open inbox or if you are travelling internationally) or the holy grail of automation, outsourcing your outsourcing.
Here is my list of favorite IFTTT recipes for your enjoyment, this will be a constantly growing list as I come up with new ways of using the service.
