IFTTT + IntuiFace
We now offer out-of-the-box integration with IFTTT! Don't know IFTTT? Think of all the apps and connected devices you use everyday. Gmail, Amazon Alexa, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, Google Assistant... Now imagine those apps talking to IntuiFace. Sounds amazing? Read on!
What is IFTTT?
is a free service
that gives you the power to have your favorite apps and devices talk to each other, realized via a trigger/action model. An instance of these integrations is called an Applet. Here's a sample Applet: Send me a text message every time my Gmail account gets an email with the keyword 'important'. This amazing power would - in the past - have required
significant development skills, if it was possible at all. Now you can
integrate apps and devices with a couple of mouse clicks.
The big news for us is
that IntuiFace is now another app available for use in an IFTTT Applet.
How does it work with
It's simple, really.
Select any of the 1000+ apps available in IFTTT, choose a trigger associated
with that app, then specify the message you want to send to IntuiFace as a
result. That message can contain any set of information, including info exposed
by the trigger. Meanwhile, your IntuiFace experience is what you can think
of as a listener - specifically, the Web Triggers Interface Asset - waiting for
a message to arrive. For each possible message you can call a specific set of
actions. That's it. You specify the "'when" in IFTTT and the
"then" in IntuiFace.
