If you haven’t heard of IFTTT, you’re in for a treat.
IFTTT is a service that enables users to connect different web applications with different conditional “recipes.” It is essentially programming that is simple enough for you to use even if you know nothing about programming.
Example: If (I am mentioned in a tweet) Then (email me.)
Make sense? You’re basically connecting applications in ways that make them more functional.

Some of the biggest web services integrate with IFTTT (Dropbox, Twitter, FaceBook, and many more) so the possibilities are endless. In the hands of someone with a little creativity, it can facilitate big things.
