According to its website, you use Channels  (Facebook, Evernote, Email, Calendar) with Triggers (the “this” of the title – such as “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook) and Actions (the “that” – which can be “send me a text” or “save it to a dropbox folder”). Each of those are “Ingredients” in a “Recipe” which you can share or that you can use from other IFTTT users. To download it for iOS for free click HERE. To download it for Android click HERETo learn more about this app, watch the video below.
