What is IFTTT? IFTTT empowers you with creative control over the products and apps you love.
What are Applets? Applets are simple connections between products and apps. There are two types of Applets: Do Applets and IF Applets.
Do Applets run with just a tap and enable you to create your own personalized Button, Camera, and Notepad. The Do apps are available for iOS and Android.
IF Applets run automatically in the background. Create powerful connections with one simple statement — if this then that.
Services are the basic building blocks of Applets. Each Service has its own Triggers and Actions.
Actions are the then part of an Applet. Some example Actions are “send an email” or “create a status message on Facebook.”
Triggers are the if part of an IF Applet. Some example Triggers are “You’re tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “You check in on Foursquare.”
