Michelle Guo: Thanks for the examples. In a way I am for the automation, but on the other hand, I want to do it in real time, as a daily / weekly routine! ;) If I find a task I want to automate, this will happen: that! ;)

I have checked out "if this then that" app, but I haven't created any "recipes" yet. Could you list some examples on how to use it?

The way that IFTTT works is that you first choose one channel (e.g. Gmail), then you choose a trigger (e.g. starred emails), and then another channel (e.g Evernote). An example recipe would be "Save starred Gmails to Evernote." Gmail is the first channel, starring your emails is the trigger, and Evernote is the second channel.

Another example is "Text me the weather every morning". In this case, you would activate the Weather Channel app, as well as the SMS channel (your phone number), and each morning, the Weather Channel app automatically sends the weather to your phone as a text message.
