LIFTTT, which is launching today for iOS and Android, stands for “Location + If This, Then That.” The app gets around IFTTT’s lack of location support by sending out emails to activate a recipe when triggered. The free app lets you set up one location trigger, but you’ll need to pay $2.99 to unlock unlimited triggers.
From within the app, you can tell LIFTTT whether to activate when you arrive or leave a location, specify the distance buffer for your triggers, set a delay or gap and block out active time periods and days.
I’m actually surprised that IFTTT didn’t already include location triggers, so the new LIFTTT app adds welcome functionality that broadens the service’s utility for uses like a connected home, geo-fenced reminders and location logs.
