20 Best Most Useful IFTTT Applets or Recipes Everybody Needs

IFTTT is one of the most useful apps for smartphones, which helps you automate your mobile device and general services by using Applets (also known as Recipes). I’ve built and used a lot of Applets in the last few days, and discovered some more useful IFTTT applets that everyone needs.

The best thing about the IFTTT platform is absolutely free, even you can create your own custom Applet in just a few steps. There are more than 500 services available to use on your IFTTT Applet.

1. Mute your Android phone when you arrive at work

If your Android device location is equal to your work location, then the Applet will set your Android phone to vibrate mode.
