Yo has taken the App Store by storm recently, rocketing up the charts and accruing scores of five-star reviews from users. Now, however, the “single-tap zero communication app” has got a little smarter thanks to IFTTT support.
IFTTT (“If This Then That”) is the online service that lets users link Internet-connected products together. In an update to the IFTTT Blog, the folks at IFTTT announced a brand new Yo Channel and provided a list of example recipes for Yo users to get started with.
As IFTTT users might expect, some of the best center around home automation: now, Yo users can “Yo” to activate a WeMo Switch and they can “Yo” to turn off their Philips Hue lights.
Yo just got serious.
It’s also possible to have the service text a friend, alter the indoor temperature using an Aros AC, tweet an update, or fake a phone call. Given IFTTT’s wide-ranging number of channels, the possibilities of what Yo users can now achieve using the service are rather vast.
