Timeline

The app opens to a timeline, which shows every instance when one of your recipes does its job.  A recipe can be anything from saving images you post to Facebook to your Dropbox account, or texting you tomorrow's forecast.

Pick a channel

When you create a new recipe, you have to choose which channel -- online service that IFTTT supports -- you want to use. Each channel has its own set of triggers (which initiate the recipe) and actions. Swipe left and right on the row of icons to pick the channel you want.

Finished recipe

One you've picked the channel, trigger and action for your recipe, you can give it a description and save it. If you need to edit it at any time, you can also do that in the app.
