Six excellent IFTTT Recipes to make iOS even better

Liane Cassavoy | Aug. 20, 2015
IFTTT and iOS are both handy on their own. But put them together, and they're better than ever.

That’s why I love this Recipe, which creates a Bitly Bitmark for all iOS screenshots. Bitly’s Bitmarks are like bookmarks, so it creates a dedicated link for your screenshot that’s viewable from any device. (Goodbye, emailing screenshots!)

It requires activating the Bitly channel (and creating a free account if you don’t already have one), as well as authorizing the IF app to access your iOS photos.

That’s about as hard as it gets, though—once those steps are done, the rest is automatic and easy.

Saved Photos

Speaking of photos, I’m sure you have plenty stored on Facebook and Instagram. But sometimes, you want access to those photos in a nice, simple, offline way.

That’s where these two recipes come in. They let you save photos you like on Instagram and photos you’ve been tagged in on Facebook to your Photos app on iOS.

Both of these recipes store the photos in albums, and create those albums if necessary. Luckily, you can change the names, as the suggested ones (“Instagram likes” and “Tagged on Facebook”) are a little clumsy.

Have any favorite IFTTT Recipes for iOS automation that you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below.
