Try These ifttt Alternatives


If you find ifttt useful you might want to take a look at these services too.


It might be that you like the look of ifttt, but it doesn’t quite suit your needs or the way you work, or it doesn’t connect channels that you use. If that’s the case maybe one of these services will suit you instead.

Out of the five, I’d say Zapier and WeWiredWeb were the most similar to ifttt. Zapier appears to be able to connect the most channels.

    zapier has more channels than ifttt. It looks good but takes hours to sync unless you pay $15 a month for a half-hour(?) sync period. The free version also limits you to 5 zaps (the equivalent to recipes in ifttt).

    • Thanks gizmoshere. I ended up staying with ifttt too – since the Twitter triggers came back I can feed info through all the different sites I use. I suppose it depends on what you want to connect, really.

  2. I tried zapier a wewired, both of them are ”easy” for some recipes but other are a real headache IMPOSIBLE to sync or make it work.

    Not for the average user.

    • It’s been a while since I used either of them – I remember that in some cases they are more flexible and offer different ways of connecting services, but at the same time their flexibility and differences to ifttt meant I didn’t always get the result I wanted/expected.

  3. Please, let me introduce, which is an integration and automation service offering features that you won’t find on other similar services. We do everything that other automation services like Zapier or IFTTT offers, but we are adding a wide range of more advanced options. Here is a short overview:

    * Automations can be very complex. You can automate an unlimited number of consecutive actions, not just 1:1 (if this:then that). Each action has at its disposal data returned by previous actions. This allows you to automate your entire workflow, not just one part.

    * Integromat gives you the possibility to use built-in routers to duplicate any incoming data. Using routers, you can divide your scenario into multiple routes and process data separately in each route. More information can be found here:

    * Integromat supports dynamically created inputs and outputs. Thanks to this feature you can, for example, call remote database procedures and map their input and output variables. It’s a function that you won´t find anywhere else.

    * Built-in feeders are special modules that can split incoming data into multiple parts and then process each part separately. For example, if you receive an email with multiple attachments, you can handle each attachment separately.

    * Aggregators, on the other hand, allow to merge individual data into a single bundle. We can, for example, create a ZIP archive of files contained in a specific folder and then save it or send it anywhere. More information on feeders and aggregators can be found here:

    * We can work with files as if they were binary data. Therefore we do not need to know the path to a folder. This lets you, for example, transform images or work with file content as with a text.

    * Another unique feature is the possibility to schedule webhooks. With Integromat you can, for example, make an automation that will gather text messages received on your mobile phone during a day and then at midnight select a winner. Standard webhooks are of course also supported.

    * We support serialization and deserialization of JSON documents and give you the possibility to work with your data in any way. Nested objects or fields are no problem for us.

    * Thanks to the transaction processing of data, Integromat is able to complete an entire automation as scheduled. In case of error, Integromat reverts all changes and restores the initial state. In short, it will either perform all actions as scheduled or nothing.

    * Integromat stores incomplete runs (DLQ). If an automation encounters an error, we will save its state. This ensures that no data are lost. You can then fix the issue and continue executing from where it was stopped.

    * Perfect visualization of everything you do. From possibility to watch how your automation is being executed to visualization of data flow in the Execution history.

    Currently, we support 103 services and thanks to the integrated support for the most widely used databases (MySQL, MS SQL, PostgreSQL) Integromat offers almost unlimited possibilities for automation. We continuously expand our list of supported services.

    Basic accounts are free and gives you a chance to experience everything what Integromat has to offer. Try it at:

    • Thanks for sharing this Ondrej. I need to check out all the suggestions that people have made since I wrote this post. It’s good to see that other developers are doing similar things.
