Nest temperature formula I was using the Temperature + Nest recipe to turn the thermostat up when the outside temperature dropped below 74 degrees so I could run the whole house fan. I also setup a recipe to send me a text when the temperature dropped as an additional reminder. Multiple weather apps showed results of 73 degrees at ~midnight. I would get the SMS at ~5 am. The temperature related trigger appears to have problems with significantly delayed actions. The SMS text was a verification that the Nest was not the problem
Great concept and UI but unreliable Let me say the idea and user interface of this app is great. I just really wish it actually worked reliably. I'm finding the only recipes that work consistently are the ones based on time. Location based recipes rarely activate by themselves and lots of the others do not work at all.
Doesn't work I would like to use the app but when prompted to allow access to location, SMS, etc the Allow button is disabled. The only option is Deny. Tried troubleshooting but that didn't help. Contacted support and was ignored. On a Nexus 5 with the latest version of Android.
Not flexible or reliable Just started using this app. Timed recipes do not trigger when scheduled, temperature controled recipes are not working, nothing has worked as expected. Also you can only have 1 trigger and 1 action. Very frustrating. I am very disappointed.
Worth the set up Honestly, I signed up for IFTTT, looked at the recipes, was overwhelmed, and didn't open it again for months. Then finally I went back in and spent the time to go through the recipes and really decide what would be helpful in my life. It was definitely worth it. One of the first apps I set up on my new phone. Does a lot of the tedious things so I don't have to.
Doesn't always work Doesn't always pick up on specific inputs and therefore recipes don't work. I have this trouble with GPS and connecting to a wifi network. I can't always trust that the app will do its job. The point of this app is automation; if I have to constantly check to see if it's working, I might as well do it myself.
This update fixes an important issue that prevented some of your Android Recipes from firing while the IF app was in the background. Give your Android Recipes another go!
