Now if you can automate some of them, you could save your precious time for avoiding those distractions and avoiding do something redundant, such as turn on the air condition when you reach home, or check weather information if it’s going to rain tomorrow and use the time to do something else better.


With the helps of smartphone (iOS or Android) and IF app, you can start automating tasks like those mentioned above. Most of the tasks you can do it with just your smartphone, but certain task that requires interaction with something else, such as air conditioner at your home, need a special equipment in order to make it automatic. Let’s start with something simple.



On IF app, a task is automated using what they called ‘Recipes’. There are thousands of recipes on the IF app where you can select and use them for FREE, or in case you want to customise it yourself, you can even create the recipe yourself, again for FREE.
