Automation tool IFTTT already has an iPhone app that has received beneficial updates in recent days, and the launch of a beta program points to an impending launch of an Android app. IFTTT, which lets users create "recipes" that take Action B when Action A happens, has risen in popularity because of its ability to automate tasks on the web and web-connected services. It launched on iOS last year and will soon release an Android app.
The IFTTT team used its Google+ page to recruit Android beta testers and then quickly deleted the post once it received the necessary number of testers. It also reached out to some fans on Twitter who had previously inquired about beta testing. IFTTT has been publicly silent about Android despite frequent badgering from users about apps. The company last week confirmed an Android version was "coming soon," and this beta program means that's probably not an empty promise.source: Phandroid
