Workflow links all the actions together with the Content Graph, which means you can combine apps that seem unrelated.

There are channels, which are the services supported by IFTTT, which includes online tools, social media sites, email, and services such as Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, Evernote, and Vimeo. This app also includes situation-based channels such as for a date, time, and weather. An action is sparked whenever a trigger goes off.
