  • Easy programming beyond standard features Dec 15, 2018

    By App Reviewer 43
    I’ve successfully used IFTT to set my Nest thermostat to run the fan for 15 minutes with one touch on a single widget button. This is very desirable to remain asleep instead of fumbling with the tiny controls on the Nest app itself, or having it tilt from portrait to landscape mode on you. Setting a fan to run for 15 minutes on the Nest app is a multi-step process that wakes me up when I need to sleep. I would love to see a widget button presentation that maximizes the description font size and offers color background differences to better distinguish one widget command from another. I solved this by minimizing my widget buttons and programs to the three that work well. Keep up the good work!

    The idea is brilliant and when the service works it works brilliantly. At times the app / website is hard to navigate and the FAQ / Support is quite poor. I created an organisation on accident on my laptop but have no idea how to access it through this app. Brilliant concept just not very user-friendly I think anyway

    Overall a good app to customize your phone's actions for beginners. Not so good if you want to program in depth, especially with less common android device settings. Seems to have many options to interface with commonly used apps, though I didn't test how well they worked...not what I was looking for, but interesting.

    Very often software is so forward thinking only a "Geek" has the understanding needed to appreciate it. This is NOT the case with IFTTT. They continue to progress while keeping their very basic concept in play... Plus a few extras to keep the interest of everyone. What's better than simple, well, point & click. Cause they even allow people to share/copy someone's IFTTT app. By far this is the most useful tool when trying to make your smart wing-ding talk to dumb thingiemabob.

  • IFTTT is a Great App! But why only 4 Stars? Because it leaves room for improvement. May 24, 2018

    By M. KIRBY COUEY
    IFTTT is a very user friendly app that is the key to unlocking the proverbial door to Home Automation market. It’s a “wizzywig”, What you see is what you get! It connects the plethora of Service(s), i.e., Alexa, Cortana, Google Assistant, etc. & those speaker devices. I’m using an iPhone a smartphone instead of those little speaker devices spread around your home that, BTW, are required if, gasp, you don’t have a smartphone. The really cool cornerstone feature is the ability to create “recipes” by linking different services to your IFTTT profile & building your personal widgets. I have had Logitech’s Harmony Home Hub that controls all devices that have an IR Remote Control. I recently purchased 2 WEMO Smart Plugs and a WEMO BRIDGE which allows any WEMO DEVICE to be recognized by Apple’s HOME app via the Apple TV 4th Gen. acting as the main controller. I can tell Siri a trigger phrase, Good Night, and the living room lights turn off. I can tell any of the popular, aforementioned, AI Asst., to turn off the TV, etc. Really good stuff is happening almost daily because of the ITFFF middleware so check it out! Warm Regards, Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening & Good Night. P.S. Imagine a World without...

    The location service is unreliable, triggering with several minutes delay, or not at all. The app is not very intuitive to use. To create a new recipe you have to tap "get more", then scroll down a ways, then scroll back up, and only then does the button "create new" appear. It used to be better. The app has much less of the maker-friendly feel it used to have. Now its purpose seems to be promoting various third- party services which you can connect to it.

  • The most important things are the hardest to do Jul 17, 2020

    By thornrag
    Creating an applet seems to be the last thing the app wants you to do. From the home screen, which is a list of services you may or may not care about, there is no indication how to actually automate something. If you do manage to stumble into the screen which turns out to be for creating an applet, again the next steps are completely unclear. The app completely abandons UI conventions common to other apps for creating and managing things. You won’t find a “plus” button or a “new” button. There is no “edit” or “manage.” Just endlessly scrolling lists of things that have nothing to do with your devices or services, links to something about being a developer, lots of links to using IFTTT for business, and a couple different views to your account settings. What would work? How about the first screen being a list of my applets, with a big green button that has a plus sign and takes you straight to a new applet window? Is that not the single thing this service is for? Utterly baffling.

  • Latest version is extremely frustrating and buggy Oct 8, 2019

    By hepcat72-1
    You cannot browse all your Applets anymore in one place. You cannot enable or disable applet notifications using the iPhone app anymore and the help article showing a screenshot of where that control should be is not there, at least for the applet I tried to disable notifications on. Tapping on a notification does not lead you to a page that is at all useful. The tapped notification and then disappears and it is nearly impossible to find the applet associated with the notification unless you remember which services it uses. Submitting a problem is an exasperating experience that tries your patience. You end up in an endless loop. All in all, what should take a handful of seconds takes over a half hour and ultimately results in not being able to accomplish what it is you tried to set out to do, Even though all you’re trying to do is turn off a notification of a specific applet. This latest version of IFTTT is much worse than previous versions.

  • Security Risk Nov 30, 2018

    By Scholarcat
    This app is a joke. When I originally downloaded, I connected it to an account but did not use any new passwords. After reviewing the app itself, I decided it was not going to do what I needed to do. I also didn’t like that it wanted to connect with either Google or Facebook on my behalf. So I tried to delete the app. It would not let me delete the app without a password. However, the password that apparently has been assigned to the account is one that I did not use Ann is not matching any of the passwords I typically use. Hence, I could not delete the app. So, I attempted to send a request for technical support, but I was continually asked to select portions of pictures which I did repeatedly. I must’ve been given 20 different pictures. Bottom line,I cannot delete the app. I don’t know the password you’ve given me. There’s no way to delete the app and there is no way to contact your support team. I am very unhappy. Put it all together and I believe your app is a security risk.

  • Like magic, only better Jan 17, 2020

    By sputnikSF
    Using this app, in a matter of seconds I can click a few times and create incredibly-useful automation routines between apps, devices, and services that never worked together before. Leaving the house? Automatically start the Roomba. Entering the house? Automatically send the Roomba home. Someone turned on the coffee maker? Send me and alert. Oh, and turn the coffee maker off automatically after 30 minutes. Added an item to your Todoist list? Append the item details to a note in Evernote or a new row in a Google Sheet to track what’s new. This app even lets me trigger things with Alexa voice commands! The possibilities are endless. It’s all like magic, only better!

    App dosen't work half the time the amount of times I've got home and don't realised I'm using mobile data because the app won't turn Wifi on and turn mobile data off, why change the app and break things if its was already working, time to look for another app until they decide to read all these comments and actually think about the people who use the app and fix it

    I just love this app. I have used prebuilt applets and developed my own. And they all work great. What I really appreciate is how many different ways IFTTT can be used to make my life easier. And, I’ve got to tell you that having the lights blink when the ISS passes overhead never fails to impress my guests 😉. I am currently using, at least, a dozen applets and have used, at least, 2 dozen others. It just never gets old trying new prebuilt applets and writing new ones. New applets are released by the thousands of applet developers every day and new systems are linking to the IFTTT environment constantly. I now link to my lights, doorbell, Google Home, thermostat and TV. This has become a more complete link to my stuff than Apple HomeKit. OH, AND IT IS FREE.

  • Great new design but... Jul 28, 2019

    By Mdub1987
    Let me start by saying this app is great and does so many amazing things for me. Functionally it’s a five star app. The new design is great and simplifies so much of the app, but dismissing the modal view that slides up when you hit “Get more” is not intuitive. It doesn’t dismiss when you slide your finger down on the indicator which is how every thing in the OS works. You have to tap on it to make it dismiss. It took me at least 30-40 seconds to figure that out which is not good UX. Also, I don’t remember seeing an explanation of the new UI. Some might wonder where all of their automations went when you are only seeing the services. Maybe an option to choose how things are shown would help or an intro. Again, great app. Couldn’t do so many things without it.

  • I want more apps to connect! Nov 10, 2017

    By Jtaborain
    I actually love this app, and am hoping it continues to get more and more detailed in its programming. I really see this as the future for entrepreneurs like myself. I use Iftt for all of my posts with my music career now on twitter and facebook, and my tumblr blog, which really cuts down on my time and has helped me get more interaction at the same time. Im just wanting even a deeper programming level to become available, and have more apps on my phone that i use to be connected. Currently im on hot schedules, and setmore, and i dont have a way to integrate my scheduling from those apps to ical, which is something id really like to use. Plus gmail, and imessage could be better integrated too. Thats really it. Thanks for creating this app and making my life easier.

  • Something for everyone Mar 15, 2018

    By KatWalk65
    Much like workclow, there is a plethora of actions to choose from. The only thing is why certain actually helpful integrations seem impossible to find or create, yet you can double up on emails and note-taking apps storing even more bot clutter. I use Evernote, weather and research type skills the most. The incessant notifications and way this app over-notifies and lack of super powerful integrations to improve productivity not create more meaningless chaotic data. If noted, send to yourself four times is the problem with this kind of service. Control your lights by actually touching them is fine by me. 75 notifications from one app shows a disregard for my time which is why I tried it in the first place. Stop the notifications !

    It's got potential, but I created a simple temperature notification for 105, and on day one it came in at 107, and on day 2 I set it to 102 and it never showed. I need reliability in an app like this, or it's flawed.

    Like this service but why does it need constant location I mean once the app is using location yes not a problem but the thing is the location is being tracked constant only way to get the location icon in status bar to stop showing is force stop this app which means it's constantly locating and using the location feature when it doesn't need to I have two Android devices with this app on and it is this app that's using location no other app

  • Wow ruined Jul 31, 2019

    By TonyLewis
    I have been with ifttt since day one like 8 years. I don’t know what you guys did or what is going on but I jumped into the website tonight and l couldnt figure out how to find a service and see everything it can do like I have for years. The website was so annoying and huge on my desktop felt like I was stuck in a mobile app on a 30 inch screen. Thought okay new interface I’ll come back later try to figure it out. I switch to the mobile app again completely stupefied. Everything is so different I can’t even figure out where the start from scratch or see what apps hooks are. It’s like the app is dumbed down so far it’s unusable. All I can use is other people recipes it looks like. So upset this app is ruined. Over to Zapier And integromat where they still respect the power user.

  • Totally broke accessibility and voiceover functionality Jul 27, 2019

    By atraveler
    Let me start by saying that IFTTT has been my favorite home automation app since 2012. I always think of it as the app that makes the impossible possible. This was one of the few apps that I would have been happy to pay for if it ever became a paid app. For the longest time, it was also very accessible to voiceover users — people who are blind and visually impaired who use the voiceover screen reader on iOS. Most interface elements had labels and you could get to any part of the app using the tabs at the bottom. The new app, however, broke all that. If you are using voiceover and you launch the app, all you hear, apart from the search edit box is “button button button button”. Within an update, this app went from being the miracle maker to being completely useless. Please, please please take a bit of time and bring back the accessibility labels — it’ll make a world of difference to so many people!

    Usages appear to consist of random amusements. The company sends alarming notifications, and provides no means of communicating other than a difficult-to-find email address which turns out to be of the "no reply" category. Connecting the service to Gmail would allow IFTTT to send emails on your behalf. Apparently some people still want to connect.
