If you use Android, then download this app. That’s the recipe popular automation service IFTTT, or If This Then That, hopes you will follow as it debuts its software on the Google Play Store for Android users for the first time. The service has long had a web component for programming automating functions between a number of supported services, and it delivered an iPhone version about a year ago, and now it’s finally available on Android.

The service allows users to automate processes like uploading a photo to Flickr if you post it to Instagram, or automatically send a message to someone if you enter the proximity of a certain area.

It’s presence on Android brings an added list of ingredients to programming recipes, though, with device-specific functionality supported.

A complete list of supported channels is available here.

IFTTT for Android is expected to be available in the Play Store sometime today.
