IFTTT vs Zapier
Last updated: April 26, 2018
IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement: If This Than That. Channels are the basic building blocks of IFTTT. Each Channel has its own Triggers and Actions. The this part of a Recipe is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.” The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”
Zapier connects the web apps you use to easily move your data and automate tedious tasks. Connect the apps you use to easily move data between them. Use simple, event-based automation to avoid repetitive tasks.
Face to face in the news:
2018 - IFTTT raised $24M from Salesforce to win over Zapier
Cloud integration service IFTTT raised another $24 million in funding to take its business deeper into areas like enterprise and IoT services. IFTTT today has 14 million registered consumers. Products from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter, BMW, Samsung, IBM, MyQ, and Verizon are among those touched by IFTTT scripts. Despite all the competition, IFTTT has grown as a long-tail play, by focusing on specific actions between apps and devices, some of which are created by users of its platform and some by the companies themselves, and often are not provided elsewhere either because companies have yet to integrate directly, or the action is perhaps too specific. So IFTTT is now more financially-stable than Zapier
