Short & sweet:

Last week, I mentioned a new channel in IFTTT → the iOS Calendar. Google Calendar served my tracking needs until iOS muscled its way into the automation ‘hood. With gCal, one calendar served as receptacle for any and all IFTTT applets. With iOS Cal, organizing bliss blossoms thanks to the ability to select a calendar per applet.

UPDATE: gCal has joined the pick-the-specific-cal-desired parade! 💃🏽

Examples:

  • Tweet → iOS Cal: SM.Twitter
  • FaceBook status, photo, etc → SM.FaceBook
  • Pinterest pins → SM.Pinterest
  • Completed ToDoist/ iOS Reminders → Accomplished


Provided an IFTTT channel exists for the app you want to automate, the possibilities astound. Tracking, productivity’s BFF.
