IFTTT (If this, then that) lets you automate tasks to make online services automatically perform tasks on your behalf. Want all your Instagram photos effortlessly transferred to Dropbox? How about having your Jawbone UP data automatically transferred to Evernote or to a Google Docs spreadsheet? Want tomorrow's weather texted to your phone every morning? IFTTT can do all of those things and more, and it offers thousands of pages of ready-to-go "recipes."
