IFTTT Alternatives : Similar automation sites

Ifttt is a web service which lets user to create tasks which are performed when certain condition is met. We have already covered about Ifttt and some of its best recipes in one of our earlier posts. Whether you like Ifttt or not,  you might want to learn some of its alternatives or programs offering similar services. Well, I did find some sites claiming to offer similar services as Ifttt, but take my word, none of them seem as good as Ifttt (maybe because it's very early in their development). Besides, Ifttt is in beta and totally free while most of these alternatives are either in private beta, or are not free. Some of them, however, do seem promising - let's just hope they will turn out to be as good as Ifttt.

How to get free SMS alert everytime you receive a new email?

Here's how you can get SMS alert for free, each time you receive a new email on your Gmail account. This method  works with Gmail account only.
