IFTTT is a handy application that allows you to automate both simple and complex tasks. This application can do a lot. Below we will dwell on one of its capabilities in more detail.
Did you know that IFTTT can find games and apps for you in App Store? You will know when there are discounts on your favorite games and application updates are released, and you can also search for applications by category, all automatically using IFTTT.
Use ready-made IFTTT Apple ts
The easiest way to view the available IFTTT Apple ts for App Store is through a search. Open the app and click Search or go to the IFTTT website and click Search there. Enter 'App Store' and then select Apple App Store from the results.
You will see about a dozen ready-made templates Apple ts that you can use. Note that some of them do the same thing, but in different ways. For example, you can learn about price reductions using notifications or by e-mail – these are two different Apple ts.
You can use the following templates Apple ts:
- Receive e – mail from the top 10 applications at a discount every day. You can choose the time of sending the e-mail and be aware of the sales every day.
- Get notified when price drops for a specific app. Select this Apple t and enter an app name or link to be notified when its price changes. This way, you won't miss out on discounts on games and applications that you have long wanted to download.
- Receive an e – mail when prices drop. This template works like the previous one, but notifies you by e – mail.
- Search apps by keywords. This Apple t is perfect if you like apps in certain categories. For example, action games, new applications, or system tools. Turn on Apple t, enter a keyword and get notified.
