IFTTT and BloomSky – A Perfect Fit
We’re integrating IFTTT directly into BloomSky mobile, bringing connectivity to a whole new audience.
Thanks to a partnership with IFTTT, our latest update offers native access to IFTTT recipes. With this new feature you’ll have instant access to the most popular recipes from within the BloomSky app itself. *If* (sorry…had to) you don’t already have a free IFTTT account, now’s a good time to set one up.
Connecting the BloomSky channel on IFTTT will allow you to link weather stations from your favorite list to any number of services. This new in-app integration will put the best recipes at your fingertips without the need to switch back and forth between apps or the web. Here’s a few ideas of how to take advantage of these recipes:
- Taking a trip? -Keep an eye on the weather in your destination by receiving a text with a picture and weather data from any one of thousands of BloomSky stations around the world
- Love to share the weather or a great sunset? -Automate posting to Twitter and Facebook
- Are you a weather junkie? -Archive weather data in Google Sheets from a particular BloomSky weather station (not limited to your own station!)
If “recipes” and “triggers” are words that seem out of place when talking about BloomSky, or if you’re still unsure about what IFTTT stands for, not to fear – we have you covered with an overview here.
Due to the high volume of BloomSky “triggers” occurring on the IFTTT network on a daily basis, it turned out that the BloomSky app was a perfect candidate for this beta program. We are on a short list of only a handful of other brands that are in partnership with IFTTT and unveiling the preview of this direct integration. Although this initial stage is being tested with a small group of the most used connections on IFTTT, there are over 300 other devices and services waiting to help connect your world. Visit IFTTT to customize your own recipes, build a profile and connect other service channels, or do it all on the go with one of the IFTTT apps for mobile.
You CAN Get there From Here…
Navigating to the ‘settings’ tab of BloomSky mobile (‘menu’ in the Android version), you’ll see a button for ‘IFTTT’. Click through to IFTTT then follow the prompts to set up your recipe, or set up an account with IFTTT if you don’t have one already. The recipes shown are the most popular and frequently triggered BloomSky-initiated actions; we’ll add more based on community demand.
If you don’t see a desired recipe within the app, you can use IFTTT mobile or web to build your own. Some of our favorites are listed below, but visit the BloomSky channel to see more.
What triggers do you want to see us add, and how would you use them?
