Automating internet and app based tasks

Earlier this year, I wrote about AutoHotKey as a way to automate processes and activities that I do within Windows. Since then, I’ve learned about ways to automate activities you might do on the internet and between applications. IFTTT and Zapier are two services that have been recommended through the grapevine. They are certainly worth a look, particularly if you want to enable location specific actions using your smartphone or want to update one software tool when another does something.

To explore some ideas, you can browse the “Recipes” on IFTTT or “Zaps” on Zapier.
