IFTTT calls a design drawing "This action will occur next when this action occurs" Recipe (recipe), I make a recipe by myself, of course to add other people's recipe published publicly I can do it.

◆Additional features for Android version
In Androt version IFTTT, the following two Android functions can be used in recipe.
·Android Device Channel
Recipes can be created with the Android terminal's function (Android Device) such as camera · Wi-Fi · clock · volume as trigger.

When you miss your mother's phone, you can send a mail saying "I will call you later".

Since IFTTT detects the trigger action every 15 minutes, the next action may not take place easily. If you want the next action to take place immediately, swipe down the timeline screen and display "Pull to refresh ..." to get synchronized OK.

Then tap "Rain tomorrow? Get ..... (by alexander)".
This is a recipe that will display an alert on the screen of the mobile terminal when we get information that "the weather of tomorrow is rain". Tap "Use Recipe" ......

Enter a place to leave the red box text box.

Tap "Use Recipe".
Scroll down the screen down ... ...
Tap "Accept" at the bottom of the screen.

◆I will make original recipe
IFTTT also makes original recipe. This time, I will make a recipe to send SMS automatically when I overwhelm a person from a person who does not want me to engage.
Tap "+ icon" at the top right of my recipe screen.
First, set the trigger action. Tap the blue "+ icon".
Tap "+ icon" of "Android Phone Call" → "Phone call missed from a specific number".
Enter the phone number of the person you do not want to talk about and tap "NEXT".
Add the action you want to occur next. Tap the red "+ icon".
Tap "+ icon" of "Android SMS" → "Send an SMS".
Also enter the telephone number of the other party and tap "Continue".
Then tap "Edit".
Enter SMS message and tap "UPDATE" OK. With this, if a phone call comes from a person with this phone number, you should send the set message by SMS if you do not receive it and you will pass. But,IFTTT for Android seems not to support Japanese input at the present time and SMS was not sent even if Japanese is input. Furthermore, it is possible to send it in English messages.
It is up to you what kind of recipe to make with IFTTT. It is very convenient because you can automate your daily routine work if you master it well.
