IFTTT allows users to easily implement various functionalities that have been customized to suit their needs. Say you need to backup photos to Dropbox or Facebook, all you need to do is use an ‘IF Then’ or a ‘Do’ Recipe for the same.

How it works?

The recipe allows you to select two applications and build a logical relation between them to facilitate the desired actions. Say you want your photos to be backed up as soon as you click them, you can use a ‘Do’ clause and associate Dropbox with it. Once that has been done, all it would take is one tap on the button and the images would go to your Dropbox.

Another way to do the same is to use an ‘IF Then’ clause. The clause will work in the background and automatically will be fired as soon as the IF condition is met. The best part about this is that you can easily select the pictures that you want to back up, unlike the dedicated application that backs up every image on the device without any differentiation.

The Do Camera application by IFFTT is available for both iOS and Android, and the Recipes of your choice can be created by selecting the associated applications and/or social networks. However, you need to be registered on the particular network to be able to use the recipe. Go to IFTTT
