Keep your documents in order and make sure your mom always knows where you are.
It's officially summer -- aka vacation season. There's no better way to vacation than with streamlined, barely-there tech.
IFTTT, or "IF This, Then That," is an online automation service that connects apps and services so that certain actions can be set up to automatically trigger other actions. I know that sounds complicated, but it actually makes your life less complicated by automating simple tasks that you would otherwise spend valuable minutes doing.
IFTTT is especially helpful when you're traveling, because it's difficult to juggle all of your tech, social networks, and photos while you're exploring a different city or country. That's why we've come up with several IFTTT recipes that will help keep your travels simple and stress-free. (Each of the images below is linked to its respective recipe; just click and all will be revealed.)
Make an offline travel file on Evernote
You probably keep all of your travel information in your email account (maybe you even have a special "travel" folder). But to access your email account, you need the internet -- and if you're traveling overseas you may not have that luxury. With IFTTT, you can set up a recipe that will pull all of your travel docs from your email account and put them in a handy, offline-accessible Evernote notebook.
