Combining Apps with IFTTT
iPhone’s new automation app ‘If This Then That’(IFTTT) allows you to bring two separate apps together by mentioning which of them is the “This” one and the “That” one. For example, you could get all the pictures you click with your iPhone to upload instantly to your Flickr account, or send a greeting message to a new contact when you include his or her information in your phone’s address book.
You can use this app for free and customize it to integrate various services and apps such as Craigslist, Dropbox and many others.
