Easy to make applets. So far, so good 03/14/18 update - applets started failing left and right. Some never execute while others take hours to execute. I have reconfigured applets,deleted and recreated but this doesn't seem to fix the issue. Also, I have noticed that applets fail to execute if I the my phone off. I monitored a device that had an applet setup to execute under a certain condition. Once the phone was off, even with the condition met, the applet never fired. What's going on here?
This is a great app, it simplified google home responses from being yelled at when giving commands to no response. . Just silence! Hey Google turn on garage lights.. "Turning on the Garage lights! No need to be reminded of what I just told you... With IFTTT I was able to make Google Home not respond. Thank you for such a great App!
Last couple updates have broken this app. Applets no longer are firing accurately and services only change upon opening of app, even if it is hours later. Sorry please fix. Still want to use it. I have submitted twice and gotten a response once, but app got worse after that last update so I submitted another ticket. Edit: last update 3-13-18 fixed my location issue and the app only working when I opened it. Not in the background. Thanks for the update and the hard work!
It's a hit or miss app for smart connecting and activation. When it works it's a 5 star but when it fails to work it's a 4 at best. The developers HAVE TO STOP deactivating applets when they issue out a new update!! Allow individuals to keep using their applets and just notify them that there is a new update.
Had an interesting error where the applet to change the wallpaper ok my Pixel would not run unless I opened the app. I toggled on the alert notification to each and it started working normally without having to open the ifttt app. And odd enough I turned the alert notification off once they stated working and they have continued to run properly. They should create a nfc trigger applet that turns on nfc as soon as Google pay app is opened and automatically turns nfc off after like 5 or 10 minutes.
IFTTT is very handy to automate these short and tedious tasks. I'm evaluating it to 4 stars because it still feels a bit limited sometimes. I wish I could define macros like switching on the lights and playing music with a key phrase on Google assistant. Or defining workflows based on the current state. But perhaps that goes beyond the simplicity of an if then that statement. Congrats to the development team anyway!
