This was a great article. I'm a regular user of IFTTT but hadn't come across Zapier until now. I was surprised to see one of my "recipes" used as an example!
The only thing that I thing IFTTT is really missing in my opinion, is a Google Plus Channel. I regularly post articles to LinkedIn, Twitter, FaceBook and G+. All of these can be automated apart from G+. This is a real shame but as IFTTT develops, I hope that they'll add this functionality.
Thanks for the article.
