Popular web service IFTTT announced a collection of three new apps Do Button, Do Camera, and Do Note for Android and iOS. Each offers a way for you to trigger frequently used actions with a couple of taps. Its allowing them more control over their favorite products and applications by presenting a detailed and customizable set of tools “to pick and choose the features they use most often and turn them into their own, personalized, one-tap app.”
“IFTTT’s mission has always been to empower people with creative control over the services and devices they use every day,” said Linden Tibbets, co-founder and CEO at IFTTT. “Our latest product, Do, introduces a simpler and more personal type of Recipe – one that runs with just a tap of a button.”
Do Button ties its recipes to a simple virtual button — users can tap the button to immediately perform the selected action, such as setting their Nest thermostat to 70 degrees or turning Philips Hue lights on or off.
Do Camera works much the same way, Users could configure a Do Camera recipe to immediately post captured photos to Evernote for documenting receipts, or as a quick way to create new social sites posts.
Do Note employes a similar do-this-now mechanism, but for text. Its imagines users sending new tweets in a single step, or quickly creating Google Calendar entries.
