The popular service If This Then That is changing its revenue model. Since 2010, we have been able to create unlimited numbers of applets for free. In this post, I talked about the opportunity for us to grab a low price for the service.
UPDATE: IFTTT has lowered the monthly subscription rate. Instead of $9.99/per month, the price is $3.99/month.
Follow along in the video as I show the dozen-or-so “If This Then That” applets that make my life easier. Re-create or modify any of them for your needs.
The IFTTT applets demonstrated:
Date & Time
1:20 Remind me about a date/time specific repeating task
5:25 Reminders for those who have no technology beyond a landline
9:40 Get an email if it’s going to rain tomorrow
