    Down from 5 to 3 stars because they have zero support. I paid to subscribe and connect Chamberlain MyQ garage door app to Ifttt. MyQ app says subscription is active. But when I press connect in Ifttt it just open the MyQ app and doesn't connect. MyQ troubleshooters worked with me and say the issue is with ifttt. Ifttt doesn't have a help line and they don't respond to service emails even though they say they will. Ridiculous. I'm cancelling the paid connection until they figure this out. Very disappointed.

    The applet to post instagram pic as native photos on instagram keeps failing me. ive even tried the other applets that do the same thing. still fails. it only worked the first 2 times when i was testing it. Can someone help me out? is it the character limit on twitter? shouldnt the applet auto fix that, like cut it out or smtg? Full Review

    Can't seem to get this to work at all - a simple recipe of switching WiFi on when location detects me at home doesn't work. Had similar problems before on a previous phone but thought it might be a problem with GPS on that device. Evidently it's not and a problem with the app instead. Shall be uninstalling Full Review

    Thiago Torres Published date: January 14, 2018

    Doesn't work at all The app supost to turn the ring from vibrate to out loud when a determined number calls and simply doesn't work. I tried another 3 applets and nothing changes. Useless Full Review

    Gary Kilroy Published date: January 8, 2018

    Could be a brilliant app but the applets fail to work far too often. If got location based WiFi apps that only work every couple of days and I've given up relying on it to set an alarm. If the app was more stable and worked every thing it would be excellent. Full Review

    Shane Jorgensen Published date: January 3, 2018

    This app is amazing. It automates so many things in my life. I installed it So that I could have the light in the living Room come on when I got home and unlock my door. But it does so many other things! Full Review

    Published date: January 5, 2018

    Set up multiple applets to run when I arrive at work: one turns on WiFi, the other turns off the ringer. When I arrive at work, one runs, the other doesn't. Pointless to be able to do half a job Full Review

    Paige Heitman Published date: January 8, 2018

    This app has a great idea, but doesn't execute it very well. It often doesn't work and the options are limited. I wanted to make it so that my lights would turn on at a certain time, however it didn't work after testing it 5 times. Great idea, poor execution. Full Review

    Le Aundre Jackson Published date: January 4, 2018

    I'm not sure if it's the recipe or the phone GPS but it can be a bit hit or miss. Though, it would be nice if you knew if you had a recipeI that overwrite another. Also, I've had to send many feedback report because its crashing while in the background. Edit. There is less crashes this could be do to me having a newer phone. However, I'm ran into an issue in which the applet state that they've ran but there is no effect on my phone. Full Review

    Sam Jones Published date: January 8, 2018

    The must have app for anyone who uses any smart home devices or just wants to automate anything in their tech lives. I have used IFTTT for years but recently started using the app again since getting a Google Home. It is great for filling in the gaps in a device's native functionality and great for designing your own commands. You do need to learn how to use it and whilst is it user-friendly the more complicated recipies do meet so work! This app ofcourse is at the mercy of whichever third party service is used so I would suggest a lot of the negative points in the reviews on here are down to them not IFTTT! Highly recommend this app. Full Review

    Nate Betz Published date: January 7, 2018

    I think the app is great but the first thing I noticed and wish it had was "if this and this then that" functionality. That alone would open up so many possibilities. Still great and has already made some nice improvements. Full Review

    Michael Neild Published date: January 6, 2018

    I think that the applets on this app are cool and pretty handy. There are some that do not fit my lifestyle, but that would be true for most people. The things that a smartphone can do are becoming truly amazing. I am finding some usefulness in these applets and I will probably find more. I believe that most people should try this app. Have a BLESSED YEAR!!! Full Review

    Yousuf Syed Published date: January 4, 2018

    The app has a lot of functionality and is well designed, although I feel like the app uses up a lot more space than needed with the large text and big paddings. I have trouble with applets relating to location l, where applets would triggered when undesired so I stopped using location, is there location radius? I currently use SMS applets and uppj triggering, I would go to my texting app and see that the app had erroscwith sending the messages. Full Review

    Tran Anh Tuan Published date: January 3, 2018

    Such a great idea that is super useful for me. Thanks for not putting on limits. Please put your effort on better speed and reliability. VoIP takes 30-60 minutes to arrive and there is no ringing half of the time. Even Maker events are not instant (they take up to an hour to arrive on Android notification) Full Review

    Published date: January 3, 2018

    App/desk site won't let me remove applets that I've tried, but don't work and therefore cannot use. Would like to be able to wipe the activity history too. Still very limited in that I cannot run more than one task from a single trigger. Full Review

    Sam Colbear Published date: January 3, 2018

    This app used to work great with Arlo cameras. Unfortunately it has stopped and the problems have still not been fixed in this latest update. Full Review

    Eric Vandal Published date: January 10, 2018

    Great app for linking a bunch of automation components together. Works with Google home and many others to do things you can't do out of the box. Full Review

    Doug Fanberg Published date: January 13, 2018

    Though it took me awhile to figure out how to make custom tasks from the desktop app, I'm now very pleased with the customizability. Full Review

    Jeff Johnson Published date: January 16, 2018

    It's been hit or miss, applets seem to function once after setup, then they don't? Full Review

    Dan Duncan Published date: January 10, 2018

    Seems to work well. Some things don't work as expected. Full Review

    Bruce Smith Published date: January 4, 2018

    An intuitive program with plenty of features. Only drawback is a lack of triggers, though that is due to the other programs not IFTT. Full Review

    Luis Mercado Published date: January 11, 2018

    Been using this app for a while with my Google home assistant to control my harmony hub, phillips hue lights, send text and add events to my calendar by voice,,, so far works like it should... Full Review

    Go Daddy go!! greats.! realy LOVE IT..and it's usefull to me now..thank you very much..i'm happy with this. 1st and last in my life to use it. It will be the best future's software Full Review

    Ollie Pateras Published date: January 7, 2018

    I created lots of things. But everytime i asked my google home it would be like "sorry. I cant help with that yet" Full Review

    Stuart Heath Published date: January 14, 2018

    Support from plenty of 3rd parties. App is nicely designed and works well. Recommended using Stringify alongside this for advanced features. Full Review

    Timmothy LaPlante Published date: January 3, 2018

    There isn't anything I've tried to do with IFTTT and Google Home that couldn't be accomplished. It is a great bridge between devices not fully supported by Google Home and Google Home itself. Very customisable and easy to use. Keep up the great work! Full Review

    Nick C Published date: January 13, 2018

    I want to like it but it doesn't work most of the time, I set up location based recipes with other back up recipes but it only works on rare occasions, the app permissions say that it is supposed to start up with the phone but that doesn't seem to work so I have to remember to start the app and keep it in the background or none of the applets work Full Review

    Albena Georgieva Published date: January 4, 2018

    I use location based applets and they just don't work even if I try to increase or reduce the perimeter. Full Review

    Published date: January 3, 2018

    Needs to be made to work across different software/hardware. This is not true IFTTT coding. Example: If D-Link camera detects motion, Then switch Wemo plug on". This app cannot handle this type of command. Full Review

    Robert Miller Published date: January 11, 2018

    A very simple and great app for smart-home integration. However, I do wish it had support for multiple triggers to a single event and more complex logic statements for advanced users. I still use Tasker for complex automation. Full Review

    Sushant Sudarshan Published date: January 9, 2018

    I find the list of past actvity a little unattractive. Other than that it works great. Full Review

    Jake Gowans Published date: January 15, 2018

    Works perfectly. Running my home brew IOT off this with my Google Home. Would be great if you could have multiple ingredients for a google assistant phrase but aside from that, this app is amazing! Full Review

    micheal vaughn Published date: January 12, 2018

    I am trying to get it to work with my Echo, and I get it to do anything. Hate this app, Tasker is a hundred times easier. Full Review

    Alex Stvolin Published date: January 11, 2018

    If the location based apps would work this rating would go up. But I don't see any response from the makers Full Review

    Ne Ararsan Published date: January 13, 2018

    I saw just 1 problem. It's about working applets time. Some applets using location applies late. Sometimes 10 seconds, sometimes 10 minutes... Full Review

    Caleb Jackson Published date: January 17, 2018

    Never imagined I'd be able to verbally tell my phone to turn my lights on, let alone set the mood with any color. Full Review

    Kelly Walsh Published date: January 17, 2018

    Android based rules only trigger maybe half the time. Ie if local wifi disconnects then toggle blue tooth on. Full Review

    Kris D Published date: January 17, 2018

    I cant seem to change the Facebook account i logged in with, and that's my one and only complaint but it is a big one for me Full Review

    Stuart Pleat Published date: January 5, 2018

    It has really helped both my phone and my Google Mini to do more. It's a great app. Can't wait to see what else it will be able to do. I am hoping the Mini applets will be able to read texts soon and read from Facebook. Full Review

    Ben Downing Published date: January 5, 2018

    The location based recipes to turn on/of wifi or Bluetooth just don't work, and I tried a variety of radiuses. Full Review
