Setting up IFTTT with RoosterMoney

IFTTT (which stands for ‘If This, Then That’) is a platform that connects different services together to make useful and fun things happen automatically. 

There are 14 million users registered with the platform and there are over 75 million ‘Applets’ that you could connect to. 

An ‘Applet’ connects two or more apps or devices together. It lets you do something that those apps or devices couldn’t do on their own! For example, you may want to automatically turn your lights on at sunset or automatically order a pizza when it rains - there’s an applet for that! And if you can’t find one for you, you can create it yourself. 

IFTTT integrations can be set up via their website, or you can install the IFTTT app from the App Store or Play Store and create them from your device.
