Although far from new, IFTTT is really useful. Also check out @wadefoster @mikeknoop's Zapier (http://zapier.com) which is more focused on business needs.

How is everyone else using IFTTT? I'm currently running 7 recipes: - Fav a tweet & save to Pocket - Text me tomorrow's forecast before bedtime - Buffer your watch later YouTube videos - Receive an email when a NYT Tech article becomes popular - Rent reminder - If tomorrow's forecast calls for rain send me a text - Send IFTTT any text message and add it to Buffer

My favorite (and arguably highest ROI) recipe is when I tag an Instagram with #fam, email it to my mother. She doesn't understand it, but she loves it.

That's a sweet hack @dshan ! I think I'm gonna try #sexy and email it to my girlfriend ;)

Those are both awesome @dshan & @RamliJohn!

1. Re-inject tweets that I've fav'd When I fav a tweet (as @kaz), it gets sent to Buffer. Some time passes (based on buffer settings) and then that tweet is posted to @kazfavs...I follow kazfavs ;) and then get to re-enjoy the original tweet. Helpful when tweets are inspirational or worthy of additional contemplation. 2. Reflective questions Every sunday night, I get a series of questions in a google form sent to me...link takes me to the form and I answer em. Inspired by @davidspinks http://quibb.com/links/7-reflective-questions-i-ask-myself-every-sunday/view

I like those @kaz. I might have to implement #2. Great idea!

I send Foursquare checkins to Google Calendar so that I can go back to any point in history and see where I was at. Will be super handy if I'm ever interrogated ;-)

The coolest IFTTTs I've heard of were parts of an elaborate scheme from a professional photographer friend. His workflow is roughly: - His camera has an Eye-Fi card which creates its own wifi network - Eye-Fi app on phone connects to card, syncs to camera roll. - IFTTT sync from iPhone album to Dropbox backup, in-camera star rating preserved in meta/EXIF tags. - 5-star rating photos get pushed to Flickr set for the event at full-res. - Automatic watermarking (via PicMarkr?) - Sync from Flickr sets to Facebook albums of same name. - People at event and at home follow him on Facebook, tag themselves in realtime, etc.

EPIC, Jonathan!

-receive an email if new feed item matches 'XYZ' from the RSS source: not rocket science, but works better for me than google alerts when you know what and where to research.
Ryan Hoover
@woosungahn I've been using Mention (http://mention.net/) for the past few months. Works very well, far better than Google Alerts.

can be used to get around the greatly missed Instagram card on twitter -- get it to tweet as a normal picture your IG pictures. You know... like Twitter used to do.... ;)

@ryan good to know!

I wonder when IFTTT might be able to trigger events from a feed of data like https://plaid.com/. Could be interesting use cases like: "Email my roommate when the Comcast bill gets autopaid each month". Does this exist?
