Todoist and IFTTT have announced that Todoist is the latest channel in the popular Internet of Things service, IFTTT.
In case you haven’t heard of IFTTT (sometimes called the internet’s glue) it is a service that let’s you create simple automation services with rules along the lines of “if [this] then [that]” hence the name. Basic tasks include saving tagged emails to Evernote and more advanced actions include messaging your partner as you leave work.
By adding Todoist it opens a whole world of possibilities for the growing to-do app. You can instantly add a task by simply tagging an email in Gmail, or you can message your partner when you add a new item to your shopping list, or a whole host of other possibilities just waiting to be discovered.
To celebrate the launch of this new feature, Todoist is running a giveaway with a host of productivity prizes that can be won for sharing the best IFTTT recipe. (Click here to find out more).
Personally, this sounds like a great use of technology which could help deal with two crucial aspects of a good productivity system: Easily logging your new tasks (now automatically) and quickly taking action on tasks (by automating them). I’m certainly looking for a good moment to switch over to Todoist and make my to-do list a little smarter.
If you are looking for a really simple to-do app, then Todoist might not be the right choice for you, instead you should look at reminders or Wunderlist. But if you want some clever automation and a to-do app which can be either very simple or really complex depending on your needs, then you have to check out Todoist.
