It seems these days as if you’re not getting anywhere unless you have a channel on the automation juggernaut known as IFTTT (If This Then That). In the past, we have highlighted lots of other companies who have allowed us to automate their service using IFTTT (the most recent one being Gmail attachments). But now the newspaper giant The New York Times has jumped right in with both feet with their own IFTTT channel, enabling you to have various stories and features from the NYT sent to you automatically. For those who love to read the news, this one could be heaven-sent.
There are currently 71 “recipes” on IFTTT which involve the NYT in some way, and this includes the following 5 which immediately jumped out at me:
- Get NYT Crosswords & Games sent to your inbox
- Add popular New York Times articles or blog posts to Pocket
- Make a list of new books for your Kindle
And what is even better is that you don’t need a NYT subscription to take advantage of these recipes. Just stick to your free NYT monthly quota and the recipes will work just fine without having to pay for a subscription.
Take the NYT channel for a spin and let us know what you think of it. What is your favourite IFTTT recipe for the NYT? Did you create your own? If so, let us know about it.
