From the IFTTT weblog:
In the past, you used IFTTT by adding Recipes, which were “if this, then that” connections between two services. Today, Recipes have evolved into Applets. Applets can do everything that Recipes could — and much more. They bring your services together, creating new experiences that you can unlock with a single switch.
I really need to spend an afternoon exploring everything that IFTTT has to offer. These updates seem like a perfect opportunity to do just that.
