    Default IFTTT charging

    Got an email out of the blue saying they are drastically restricting the free version as a new paid model comes in. If you have more than 3 custom applets, you need to pay.

    They're offering a "set your own price" FYI in case you'd not seen (suggested 9.99pcm, minimum 1.99), but I'm trying to figure out if we can set up a family account since the wife and I have without realising both set up duplicate applets.

    Anyway I assume many people here use the tool so somewhat a PSA. Anyone looked into the newer features yet?

    The only thing that surprises me is that it's taken them so long to charge

    I don't actually use them for obvious reasons Power Automate is my preferred choice.

    Reddit is seething with "boycott IFTTT" / "killed by greed" posts. I'd love it to be free too but to suggest a company is greedy for charging for their product... jeez. How DID they make any cash before, at all?

    Main issue is while the fundamental idea is great and is well recognised, the product is a bit shoddy in many ways. Lots of long-standing issues that never get addressed. Paying for two accounts for one household, blegh.

    9.99 is a crazy price but jumping in at a lower level and seeing what they do might be worthwhile. Although the backlash they're getting, who knows if they might change it.

    Never heard of it, is it a good like-for-like replacement? I saw a few people mention "Stringify" but I thought I saw reference that it was dead or something.

    Main issue is I want something with a wide range of integrations which was where IFTTT shone, it seems to work with everything!

    Power Automate is the Microsoft product formerly known as Flow.

    I'm an MS house for obvious reasons (I make my living from MS's Power Platform and MS allow me to pull tricks they won't let anyone else try).

    I assume they support non-Windows phones unless you're still rocking the Lumia 1020 Sounds like probably not for me though.

    Stringify died a year or so back... maybe leaving IFTTT as the only player able to do as they wish
