Heads up, IFTTT fans — the app has exited beta and is now available to download free in the Google Play Store. In case you don’t know what it is, IFTTT stands for If This Then That, an acronym that the site’s very function is named for.
If a certain action happens, such as Phandroid posting a news article, then post the title, an image and a link to that article on Phandroid’s Twitter account. That’s just one of many examples of things you can do with IFTTT recipes.
IFTTT for Android is pretty nice because it hooks into Android’s various elements. It can automatically change your wallpaper based on some condition. You can have it send a text to your spouse whenever your location shows that you’ve made it to work or back home. And that’s on top of all the other stuff you can already do over at the IFTTT website. Think tasker, except it has the potential to be a lot more flexible.
We’ve already discussed 9 other great things you can do with them with your phone (such as sending you a text if the CDC reports a zombie outbreak), so be sure to check that out and see if it’s something that could help enhance your life. If you’ve decided you want to give it a go then be sure to head to Google Play for the free download.
