ifttt.com is a new service that allows you to create tasks using online applications that have API. For example I have a task that SMS’s me when it rains in Croydon - which has been quite a lot recently but has been useful for me on planning my journey home. ifttt currently have 21 channels (the time, Tumblr, flickr, the weather, sms, Foursquare, Evernote, Dropbox, etc.) with a possibility of 1,115 tasks between them. They have already talked about bringing in multiple tasks - if this then that and then that - but its still in beta and needs scaleability with reliable performance before they get too tricksy else it will fall flat on its face - and we don’t want that. Hopefully they will be adding more channels soon - and Google+ has to be the top of the list now but I am not even sure if Google+ has or will have an API though there is an unoffical API . Folk are already complaining about yet another social media channel to upkeep but with ifttt you can pick your publishing space and update all the others automagically. This is going to be so very cool.
