Johnson City Homes - Useful App

We love talking technology here at The Shields Team. We have a favorite app that we'd like to turn you on to today, it's called "If This, Then That" or "IFTTT", and introduce you to how it can help you with your home search; and a few other good things. 

Available for mobile in both Android and iOS operating systems, IFTTT has become one of the most useful apps on the market today. The app uses 'receipes' to connect chains of triggers that instruct the program to perform certain automated functions.  IFTTT can automate web-application tasks, such as posting the same content on several social networks, logging missed calls in the Google Drive, sending a text message to a loved one when the GPS on your phone senses you've left a designated place, and many, many other very useful functions. IFTTT can turn your ring and notifications off at night at a time when you designate you want peace and quiet; it can un-mute a silent ringer for a certain caller, and can connect and disconnect from wifi to save on your mobile data without even a second thought from you.  Each week we speak to home automation here on The Shields Team blog, and IFTTT can even control some of the smart home systems in your home. 

As a buyer, IFTTT can give you a definite advantage over other buyers by notifying you instantaneously when there's an update or a new post on websites that offer the latest listings. Most Realtors will update Facebook and Twitter accounts with the very latest home on the market, and you can be the first to get notified. IFTTT will make a list of new notifications and save it in a spreadsheet, email or text them to you for later viewing. 

Check out the IFTTT app on the web atwww.ifttt.com
