‘Everything works better together’ is what IFTTT says. And, why not? Getting all of your applications and gadgets to work together seamlessly has been a technological wonder.
With big players like IFTTT and Make (formerly Integromat) playing for a long time, there’s a newbie in the automation game giving them a tough fight- and that’s Integrately.
If you are new to the application and device automation,you may get confused as to which one is better for your needs. Let’s do a quick comparison of these three popular automation tools – IFTTT vs Make vs Integrately.
To help clear the air, we discuss the features of all three tools, their pricing, and the verdict on which one you should go for.
Integrately is an automation tool that connects over 900+ apps thereby providing millions of ready-to-use automation. It helps you automate several workflows and increase productivity and efficiency.
|Pros||Cons||Best Suited for|
Integrately is one of the easiest automation tools to use. The user interface is very intuitive and user-friendly. Creating automation is as simple as 1-2-3. You just need to select the apps you want to automate, specify the trigger, and add the actions.
Integrately provides several features that make it stand out from the rest.
The ‘1-click automations’ is one of the most unique and best features of Integrately. These are pre-built automation for the most popular use cases ready to be activated with just 1 click.
Another excellent feature is the provision of ‘Webhooks’. Webhooks are extremely helpful when you want to create a custom integration with an API-based app. Also, its ‘SmartConnect’ feature automatically maps the fields of selected apps reducing your work significantly.
Support is the key that makes Integrately stand out of the crowd. It not only guides you throughout your automation step by step but also provides:
Integrately is one of the most cost-effective automation tools available in the market that provides maximum tasks. It provides a 14-day free trial for you to explore the platform with full access to all the premium features. After the trial, you can opt for one of the three paid plans with prices starting from as low as $19.99 for 14,000 tasks. You can find a detailed comparison of prices in this section below.
IFTTT (If-This-Then-That) is another popular automation tool that connects your apps and devices using automation called applets. It outperforms its competitors by allowing interaction with smart home devices and other IoT applications and is widely used for personal and home automation.
|Pros||Cons||Best Suited for|
IFTTT has a user-friendly UI with several ready-to-use Applets. You just need to select the required applet, connect your accounts, and boom! Set up your automation in just a few minutes. The only shortfall is that it supports simple workflows and not the complex ones.
IFTTT provides email support limited only to its Pro or higher subscription users. Other users can submit recipe suggestions that may or may not be accepted by their team.
When it comes to pricing, IFTTT’s freemium model that charges $0 for 5 applets is quite attractive and widely used. Besides, its paid plans also come at a very affordable price ranging between $2.5-$5 with increased and unlimited applets respectively. You can find a detailed comparison of prices in this section below.
Make (formerly known as Integromat) is a powerful automation tool that lets you connect your apps and devices using automation called ‘scenarios’. Once set up, these scenarios can run instantly or scheduled for later. You can also watch the scenario run in real-time whenever you need. The best part is that it helps solve complex problems in the way that you imagine in your mind. However, you need to be technically strong to adapt to its environment, or else the learning curve would be too high to continue.
|Pros||Cons||Best Suited for|
Make offers a lot of features and can solve complex problems. It is not very user-friendly and has a high learning curve. The UI is complicated and takes time to get used to.
Make provides support in the following forms:
Like IFTTT, Make (Integromat) also provides a freemium model with 1000 ops/month. Paid plans are available for $9/month, $16/month, and $29/month. However, there is a glitch – every time Integromat ‘checks’ for changes, it is counted as a task and this results in more task consumption thereby incurring a hidden cost.
