Make your life a LOT easier with IFTTT

Ever since I discovered IFTTT my life has been a little easier. That’s no exaggeration. And it does it automatically. Literally any solution I want for any social network or social anything out there is on this network.

How it works:

If you have a problem, you create or browse for a social recipe on IFTTT’s website. Yes it’s free and all the services are free (that I’ve encountered thus far).

It works with their “if this then that” concept across hundreds of channels including social, email, mobile apps, text, etc. If you want something to happen, IFTTT has a recipe for it that you activate and it automatically starts. All recipes can be turned on and off.


I wanted a new email every time Netflix had a new streaming release. I wanted to know what was new on Netflix. IFTTT has a recipe for if there’s a few feed item then I get an email.


I want an email every time a new book is added to Kindle’s top 100 free books list. IFTTT has a recipe for if there’s a new book added then I get an email.
