The Evernote App Center is full of apps that extend how Evernote can be used in nearly every facet of your daily life, from professional pursuits to creative endeavors. In this  series, we will introduce some of our user’s favorites.

Megan Iemma is a consultant in Australia who runs a site called Tech Coach HQ. This is how she uses IFTTT to capture information in Evernote:

Save time with IFTTT
Megan says IFTTT helps her with “digital de-cluttering,” meaning she sets it up to handle certain interactions with Evernote, such as this IFTTT recipe that saves all her tweets to Evernote. This is powerful because she uses Twitter to note important things when attending conferences. With everything in Evernote, she follows up later on what she noted to post on her website. Another favorite recipe automatically sends certain files in her Dropbox to Evernote, which are in turn scanned into Expensify for easier expense report filing. No paperwork needed.

Create your own recipes
There are many other recipes, and the best part of IFTTT is its flexibility. Megan creates recipes based on her needs. With IFTTT and Evernote handling repetitive tasks, she is able to manage her website mostly from her iPad, while on the go.

    I use IFTTT.com to help me sort starred items from feedly and twitter into Evernote so I can easily find saved content for future blog posts.

    I think the concept is cool, but I’m trying to create a recipe to automatically save all incoming & outgoing text messages from my android phone to two notebooks that are in a stack. For some reason I cannot get it to work. Any ideas?? Thanks.
