What is IFTTT and what can I do with it?


IFTTT (which stands for “If This Then That”) is a website for easily controlling hundreds of websites, apps and products with no programming.

IFTTT works by allow you to create Applets which can easily connect to social media services like Facebook and Twitter. They explain it on their website about page.

Tips for working with IFTTT:

  • If you are trying to trigger the cloudBit from IFTTT, it could take up to 15 minutes. This is a limitation of IFTTT, where it will only check services like Facebook, Instagram and email every 15 minutes.
  • If you are using the cloudBit to trigger to something else on IFTTT, it should happen within 5-10 seconds.
