IFTTT gives Makers the multi-stage IoT Applets partners had to pay for

IFTTT has built a reputation for itself as the glue that can hold the Internet of Things and the cloud together, and now it's opening up its most advanced features for regular users. IFTTT - or If This, Then That - is effectively a cloud-based hub for connected devices and services that might not normally work together.

IFTTT moves over from Recipes to Applets

IFTTT moves over from Recipes to Applets

Just a few days ago, Microsoft fully launched Flow, which was its own take on the automation platform market but with an eye towards the workplace. IFTTT, who can be credited as having popularized the idea, isn’t taking things sitting down. But rather than aiming its guns specifically at the enterprise, it is trying to do one better.

Microsoft Flow IFTTT rival is now open to all

Microsoft Flow IFTTT rival is now open to all

It seems that Microsoft is now getting into the habit (again) of creating new products that can be seen as a rivaling copy of a popular service. Skype Teams, for example, is set to kill Slack.
