I'm surprised IFTTT hasn't been mentioned yet. It's an app that combines many services together and let's you get creative with them in a very user-friendly interface.
You can use the applet id 57612152d to use mine or you can make your own:
Download the IFTTT app.
Open it and register.
Tap the "+" in the upper right corner to make a new applet
Tap "+ this" and select reddit
Select "New hot post in subreddit" and enter "uplifting news" (The title of my post is actually wrong, it should say "hot" instead of "top")
Tap "+ that" and select "Android Wear"
Select "Send notification"
Make it appear the way you want. I entered "Good news, everyone!" before the [Title] placeholder and removed the content of the "image URL" field
Enjoy some positive news throughout the day
Mhhh, looks like a much more limited version of IF by IFTTT - any reason to pick this over the other?
Also, this Hook unlock isn't account-bound and won't survive a re-install or switching devices.
IF by IFTTT can do the same and a lot more and isn't just limited to Android but a platform-independent service.
Since it's entirely server und push based it also has the enormous benefit of not waking the Android device every 15 minutes (configurable) and guzzling a bunch of mobile data and battery power in the process. [Seriously, doing multiple Reddit searches every 15 minutes from a mobile device should have a more than insignificant impact on both].
Since IF is more flexible and less focused on this specific task, it may be a tiny bit harder to set up but it's far from difficult to use.
I don't mean to be too harsh on this app, I'm sure it is well designed and has its use cases. But there are more elegant solutions to the problem in my eyes.
Or IF by IFTTT which with a recipe pulls wallpapers from /r/wallpaper (or your choice of sub reddit for that matter).
Edit: The recipe - Set my Android wallpaper to the best posts in /r/wallpapers.
Alright, I can sort through the beginning of the story. I looked up the App called IF by IFTT. I understand what it does now, and I understand what your recipe means as well as the beginning of The Phenomenon.
However, I do not understand your parent's or your brother's reactions. The only conclusion I got was that your brother got an email, posted something to Facebook, and then you felt the need to barge into everyone's bedrooms...for some reason.
Same. If anyone else wants to set it up on Android you can download IFTTT and "add a recipe" where the trigger is a new hot post in /r/earthporn on your reddit app (if your reddit app doesn't work then you can download Now for Reddit which is what I have and I know it works) and the action is set new wallpaper.
Iirc you can do it via IFTTT. It's been more than 3 years I last tried their service. Back then it used to work fine with Facebook and Twitter. Just give it a try.
Look into an app called IFTTT. That stands for IF This Then That, and it essentially allows you to set triggers for all sorts of things. It links in to a bunch of the smart home stuff as well as things like reddit or your sms client. Its very handy even if you don't have a smart home.
Edit: App link: [link]
Or for Android, you can get an app called IF and set it so that if there's a new hot post in /r/erathporn, update device wallpaper.
Or get this app from the Play Store
I assume these emails would come from the same address each time? If so, you could use If This Then That to alert you when you receive an email from that address. It will work with your gmail account if that's the address that would be receiving the notification emails. If it isn't, you could set a forward for your company email to your gmail, assuming that doesn't violate policy of course.
Not exactly what you asked for, but with the app IFTTT (If This Then That) you can make a recipe that sends a notification every time a new post reaches the top of "hot" in a subreddit.
> and when i am elsewhere try to connect to whatever one is available.
Do you mean to automatically connect to ANY open WiFi that you have never connected to before?
On a side note, You may want to check out the app IFTTT It has tons of 'recipes' you can set up...like 'turn wifi off when i leave my office' and 'Turn wifi on when I'm home'
This AskReddit thread has a lot of good replies to it.
My personal favorite however is the IFTTT (If This Then That) app.
While it's not a birth control app per se, I use IFTTT (If This Then That) which is a fantastic free automation app to text myself a reminder every day at 6PM to take my pill.
Then I delete that text after I take it! I tried the alarm as most people are suggesting, but found I would just dismiss my alarm and forget about it. I switched to this app because getting a text gave me a record that didn't disappear unless I wanted it to!
Edit: Added the link!
Well, that is possible, but not with the tools I have posted (as far as I know). The way I have it setup now is that I have configured an applet in IFTTT to change the wallpaper to the dark one when the sun sets and back to the light one when the sun rises. I'm sure it's probably possible to configure more advanced behavior with something like Tasker, but I've not played with that yet.
Your best hope might be with IFTTT (if this then that). It lets you set up conditional actions. Don't think it'll be able to provide exactly what you want though, but you should mess around with it just to see
Look at an app called IFTTT.
It's an amazing app where you can do logic statements do very powerful things.
For example when I setup some of the following tasks:
1) When I finish a trip in my car IFTTT is linked to the Automatic App and will log the trip in my Google Drive.
2) When a new 500px editors background wallpaper of the day changes it will update my background on my phone
3) When I get in the neighborhood of my buddy it texts him that I'm almost there and to unlock the door.
4) When I connect to my home wifi disable bluetooth connection.
I also have an Onhub at home and it has direct integration with that and many other IoT devices to do some amazing stuff.
You should be able to use IFTTT to do this but as far as a simple setting and no 3rd party app goes as to where it saves the file to, no I don't think so.
Sorry you had that problem. I haven't had any issues, other than my bloated Steam library with indie games I'm never going to play. But here are my steps:
IF - an app that automates virtually any task on your phone (for example upload any picture taken automatically to Dropbox)
Links: App Store - Google Play
The If This Then That app might work. I know they have a Space channel. I use it to change my background to the astronomy pic of the day.
It's something else called IFTTT. It can do tons of other stuff too so play around with it.
Here is the iOS app
Here is the Android app
> How so?
Using IFTT with a recipe that's "if (new post in /r/earthporn) then (update device wallpaper)" I'll put a link to the recipe up later
It's kind of a roundabout method, but you could set it to send you email alerts, then set up IFTTT to trigger an Android alert whenever you receive an email alert for a Twitch stream.
Probably done with IF but I wouldn't know cause I've got an android, and while I know android definitely can do it with the IF app, iOS is generally less capable.
It's a fantastic android app . You can create "recipes" to perform tasks for you. Most of mine are based on where I am.
For example, I have one that automatically turns my ringer off and sets my phone to vibrate when I get to work. Another that turns my wifi on/off when I arrive/leave home.
There are bunches of pre-made recipes you can use or you can create your own. It's also very user friendly.
Edit: I believe there is also a dedicated subreddit, though I think it's named after the previous title, IFTTT
Yup. I was never a fan of "play music" anyway, as it was always kind of annoying for music to start up on connect.
The "keep quiet" functionality is much more easily duplicated and much more comprehensive with something like IF
You can try IF. You can set it up to change the wallpapers every couple of hours. You can set it to get the wallpapers from /r/EarthPorn.
here you kind of go, if you have android that is. You need to do a little work to learn how to use the app. But when you do, you can link up all the actions of your apps to trigger one an other. Or better yet, just download some profiles others made for you!
If you don't mind giving a service access to the account, you can use a service like IFTTT paired with their IF app for Android. You link your gmail account using Google's OAuth2 protocol, then create a "recipe." Choose Gmail/Any Email in the Inbox for the trigger, and for the action choose "IF Notifications." Now when you get an email on this account, you'll get a notification on your phone. It may not be as fast as if you had the account on your phone, but it works for keeping the account off the device and is a trusted service.
Check out IFTTT. You can download recipes that do different things. I have one that turns wifi off when I leave the house and then turns it back on when I come back home. Just uses location.
Ha thanks. It works really well. I ordered one of those new echo dots to control the lights I'm excited to try it out, but have to wait a month for it to arrive.
Look into an app called ifttt (if this then that) here is a link to it on Google play they have it on Apple too. [link]
You can add a lot of functionality to alexa with it, and that is how I get the hue lights to interact with the baby monitor.
So. This took a while and also didn't work quite as planned.
But I've been using IFTTT with an applet to let me know when a certain reddit user posts.
And that has been working wonderfully.
For complex scheduling of tasks/automation If This Then That might be cool to look at: [link]
I think Firefox is the best mobile browser because it has extensions such as uBlock Origin for ad blocking even on Android.
Create an account at IFTTT. You'll also need the app on your phone.
Go to the website and click on My Applets. Then click New Applet. Click on "+this" in the "if this then that" statement. Search for Android and select "Android Device." Scroll down until you see "Connects or disconnects from any WiFi network" or "Disconnects from any WiFi network" depending on which you want to track. You can also just track disconnections to a specific WiFi network.
Then you'll need to click on "+that" and search for Sheets. Click on Google Sheets and select "Add row to spreadsheet." Then click "Create Action" and then "Finish."
Now, every time your phone connects/disconnects to any network or specific network (whichever you selected) it will add a row to a Google Sheet saved in your Google Drive.
IF by IFTTT is an Android app that automates your life by means of user-made "recipes". Examples: Every weekday at 21:00, mute ringtone; Text SO when I get home; Notify of every new post in /r/insertsubhere; etc.
Nothing. Almost nothing. IFTTT tries to do the bare minimum.
We also have some die hard fans of Automate. The apps looks a bit old but though released in 2014 the developer is still maintaining it to this day. This is the closest that comes on the Android world. But yeah it still doesn't beat the Workflow.
Check out the app IFTTT for iOS / IFTTT for Android. It will allow you to get a notification when there's a chance of rain. There are also a lot of other cool things you can do with that app--I'm sure you'll love it. Also subscribe to /r/IFTTT
ITTT is great for this. Setups are called recipes and they can automatically pull from various sources for wall paper. I use /r/earthporn
Os dois que eu conheço são IFTTT e Tasker.
O IFTTT eu cheguei a instalar mas nunca usei efetivamente. Parece ser bem simples (no bom sentido) e fácil de usar.
O Tasker também nunca usei (é pago) mas pelo que li por aí é bem completo, mas pode demorar um pouco mais pra dominar o app.
Use IF app to log almost anything, including call logs and location in Google drive excel sheet. It does it automatically for you.
For IFTTT, you first need to install it one of your devices or sign up on their website. Then, within the app, there's an option to connect it to your amazon echo.
Once the channel is set up, it's really easy to get it going with some cool stuff, especially if you have other IFTTT devices, like Hue lights.
Here's a list of popular commands others have made. If you wanted to, you can make your own too. It's super simple and no programming required.
I don't know of an app that does this, but I do use a recipe on IFTTT that logs the time I started and ended and how many hours I worked. Then I tweaked the sheets page to calculate exactly Overtime insurance deductions and tax deductions, giving me an estimated total of what my check will look like. If I can figure out a way to share the excel file, I will. For now I can link IFTTT, and an app I used to calculate the tax deductions from my check before.
Do you plug in your phone when you go to bed? IFTTT will help. It will create a Google spreadsheet entry every time you charge your Android device
You have to use the IFTTT app
Spotify doesn't have something like this built in, but you can use something like IFTTT on Android to stop playback after a set amount of time.
good question, gonna look into it.
Not a shot at you, but first google search:
and here is the app: [link]
I just installed it and tried it, ill post an update when a post is made.
It is an online archive of actions and presets for smart devices, giving them more functionality and more connections between devices.
IFTTT even caters to Google Assistant and Amazon Alexia. I would highly recommend that you create an account and explore what they have to offer.
Link to IFTTT via the Play Store
Apple App Store
You could use if this then that. I'll put the link in an edit here in a second.
Edit: Here's the app.
I know there's some fancy bot that you can request apps links for, but I'm a rookie so I have to do my stuff old school.
This should work, but if it doesn't, there's always IFTTT, which will allow you to turn off your ringer/vibration for a set period, say 12am to 8am.
I didn't actually realise that location had to be on. I guess that's why my battery had been draining like crazy for the past four months... which happens to be the amount of time I've had my Activite. D'oh.
As to solutions: If you wanted to you could only switch on location once a day to sync the day's data, then switch it off for the remainder of the day. A bit more effort, I know. If you're nifty with these things, maybe you could build an IFTTT recipe to switch on location at a certain time each day and switch it off again half an hour later or so.
I can still get by with one full charge a day, but if you can't I understand that it's a problem :/
T'as tous un tas de taches pré-faites que tu peux "installer", et tu peux faire les tiennes, pas besoin de savoir coder.
Par exemple, tu choisis dans la case condition : "Location", tu choisis si le déclencheur est quand tu rentre ou sort (ou les deux) d'une zone, et tu vas dans la liste des actions et tu peux choisir tous un tas de truc, genre activer la wifi de ton phone, activer l'alarme de ta maison (ou la couper), envoyer un mail, sms, eteindre lumière maison etc.

Probably can be done with IF but I wouldn't know cause I've got an android, and while I know android definitely can do it with the IF app, iOS is generally less capable.
I have it set up on my phone to do that using the IFTTT app. For example say you wanted to be notified for new posts on /r/gamedeals that contain the words 'free' and 'steam', add a new applet using Reddit > New post from search, set the search criteria to title:'free' title:'steam' subreddit:gamedeals, and set it to give you a notification when the applet is activated.
title:'free' title:'steam' subreddit:gamedeals
There's also a web-based version that can notify you in other ways, e.g. by email, if you don't want to use your phone for the notifications.
Use IF by IFTT, I use it for turning off mobile data and sound completely on my phone when I get to school. There's probably a premade profile for it, and if not its easy to make one. It works with 5.1 as far as I know.
If This Then That
If This Then That (IFTTT)
Turn a light in your house from red to blue when you get an email, automatically disable WiFi on your phone upon leaving your house and re-enable it again once when you're back. Sychronized profile picture uploading across every social media account. (upload a picture to facebook, it auto-uploads it to everything else you choose, ex. snapchat, instagram, twitter, and even wayyyy lesser known apps.
You can even use it to automatically send a text message to people when you miss their calls.
These are just minor examples, this app could be limitless if you use it correctly.

I personally use IFTTT for automatically setting my phone to silent, but I it triggers when I enter a geographical location. I'm sure that it can set the phone to silent based on the time though.
If my comment is not the correct format I apologise. This is the first comment I have posted on Reddit.
IF by IFTTT
It allows you to create events that triggers at specific things. I have set it to notify me if it's going to rain tomorrow, to disable my lock screen password if i'm at home, and to change my background picture to 500px's Editors choice whenever a new one is published.
You can make tons of different combinations depending on what you're looking for.
You could check IF by IFTTT. There's an option to create a recipe like this
If Android Photos (New screenshot), then whatever is available
For example, I could send a push notification through Pushbullet with the attached screenshot whenever a new one comes in. You could also choose to send the screenshot via an email, or another channel.
Now, the only remaining thing to do would be to find a program to make screenshot at a defined interval.
Maybe an antomation app like Tasker (and probably a screenshot plugin) could do the job.
TL:DR: Use an automation app to make a screenshot, let IF by IFTTT intercept the screenshot operation and send it through whatever mean.
Get the IFTTT app and make/login to your account and connect your services, including the LG phone channel if you want. You can create If triggers and followup actions to automate certain tasks.
IF Formally known as IFTTT. You create conditional connections that can work in the background or send push notifications. It even has reddit integration
Example: If its going to rain today send me a text. If top post in /r/norwaypics than set it as phone background
and use this recipe:
Then every time you take a photo it will automatically send the photo (uncompressed) to your Google Drive account.
I've been seeing this a lot around this sub. I tried googling it and still not sure what it is. Should I just download this app --> [link] ?
IFTTT has a few applets that will turn on WiFi and turn off mobile data when you enter a certain location or at a certain time.
Here it is: [link]
