Maybe you have heard the news that IFTTT is introducing a Pro subscription plan. Along with that, IFTTT also announced users on the free plan will be limited to create 3 custom applets. So you might be wondering what that means for your Apilio setup.
I guess there are two main topics coming out of IFTTT’s announcements:
1st: Do I still need Apilio?
2nd: Do I need both an Apilio and IFTTT Pro subscription?
This is something most users would not be happy with, so we aim to enable everyone to use Apilio without needing an IFTTT Pro subscription. The features of the IFTTT Pro subscription are not necessary to make your Apilio setups work, but of course the limitation of 3 custom applets could be an issue for free IFTTT users.
To make Apilio easier, and more powerful, for users we have implemented features for timing (including sunset/sunrise) and delays and aim to build-in a full range of native capabilities (like weather and location information for instance) going forward. One side effect of this, of course, is that it cuts down the number of IFTTT applets required.
It’s worth noting that the limitation to 3 IFTTT applets is only for custom created ones. A free user still can activate unlimited IFTTT applet templates. We will increase the number of templates we provide on our service page to cover the most popular integration pairs. These are not only easy to activate, they also don’t count towards your own 3-applets-limit so will save you precious $$$. You can help us building the templates by sending us feedback!
BUT, as usual, you folks are going to have the final word on this so please let us know what you think by replying to this post thread.
