IFTTT is truly handy for automating bothersome tasks. By creating “recipes” with “channels” that plug into third-party apps, it can silence your phone when you arrive home, for instance, or e-mail you the latest news from Droid-Life (shameless plug). Now, it will be able to perform the same chores, but on your wrist – IFTTT is the latest of many apps to receive Android Wear support.
With the new Android Wear channel, the folks behind IFTTT have introduced several smartwatch-specific features to support Google’s wearable platform. You can program tasks like turning off your Philips Hue lights, uploading a map of where you are to Facebook, automatically checking in with Foursquare, and get reminders about your calorie goals. Awesome, right?
To use the Android Wear channel, simply download and install IFTTT on your smartphone.
