Last fall, TNW Labs launched a new app called Push.co that allows you to receive news and other notifications on your iOS device. Starting today, the app now supports one additional service: IFTTT. With it, users can create their own recipes that will generate personalized push notifications at any time.
TNW co-founder Patrick de Laive said about the integration, “IFTTT and push.co was love at first sight and since the introduction of push.co back in October our users have been asking for it. It just makes so much sense. So we’re thrilled we can finally geek out on all ‘If this happens then send me a push.co notification’ possibilities.”
If you’re not familiar with IFTTT, it’s a service that enables anyone to connect different web applications together. Short for “If This Then That”, users can create triggers or actions so that weather alerts can be posted to Facebook, or that if you’re tagged in a Facebook photo, send you a text message.
Now the inclusion of Push.co means that users can create triggers so that they’ll receive a notification every time something specific happens in an app. Recipes available include Push.co and Google Drive — if there’s a new notification by a specific app, it will add a row to a designated spreadsheet. Here are several other examples:
The bottom line is that Push.co recipes will allow unique customizations to be made so that notifications that are important for you are shown. Push will come to Android, you can request a beta invite here.
While normally $1.99, TNW is making Push.co free for a limited time. Make sure you download the app today and create your own IFTTT recipe. Share some of the cool triggers and actions you’ve created below in the comments.
