Automated action service IFTTT launches native iPhone app

updated 09:46 am EDT, Thu July 11, 2013

Includes extra photo, contact, reminder actions

Formerly web-only service If This Then That (IFTTT) has released a native iPhone app. The web service is able to automate a number of online actions via simple conditional statements known as "recipes." Action points can be linked to other online services -- such as Craigslist, Dropbox, Etsy, Evernote, or Gmail -- as well as things like personal email or the date and time.

The iPhone app differs mainly by including extra photo, contact, and reminder actions. iOS photos can be automatically uploaded to Dropbox, for instance, or completed reminders can be entered into a Google Docs spreadsheet. The app also makes it easier to browse featured or trending recipes, or see a history of recently-executed ones tied to a personal account.

The app is a free download, but relatively limited in platform support. No native iPad interface is available, and users must be running iOS 6 or later.
