If This Then That, commonly referred to as IFTTT, has been letting mobile users easily automate tasks like saving Instagram photos to Dropbox for a while now. Starting today, though, IFTTT has a new name and a few new app siblings.
IFTTT announced today that it’s changing the name of its core app to just IF and releasing three new apps in the process. The three new apps are DO apps and they allow you to quickly and easily perform specific tasks.
First up is Do Button, which will let you create your own special button to automate a task. For example, you can create a button to turn a Philips Hue light on or off. You can also use it to quickly send content to services like Tumblr and Google Drive.
Next is Do Camera. Using this app, you can create a camera tool that’ll let you send multiple photos to Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress, Gmail and more. You can also use it to take photos of recipes and other documents and then save them to Evernote.
Finally, we’ve got Do Note. This app lets you compose a note and then save and share it to services like Evernote and Twitter, create an event and save it in Google Calendar, and more.
While today’s news doesn’t have much of an effect on the main IFTTT app that we’ve come to know, the arrival of three new DO apps should serve as a nice introduction to the world of Recipes, Channels, and more. The DO apps will make it easy to automate quick tasks and could get users interested in creating more intricate Recipes using IFTTT.
