Find creative ways to connect myriad apps to Beeminder with IFTTT
IFTTT gives you creative control over the apps you use daily by letting them talk to each other for you. You set up an Applet that runs automatically in the background. When a Triggering event happens in one app, IFTTT runs your Applet creating a corresponding Action in another app.
Beeminder is a Quantified Self tool for tracking your progress toward goals. Well, that's half of it. The other half is that you hard-commit to staying on track toward those goals by pledging actual money. We make pretty (nerdy) graphs plotting your progress along a Yellow Brick Road which you customize as you go. But whenever you fall behind then you pay us the money you pledged.
