Zapier: A Nifty Matchmaker for Apps


When it comes to app match ups no-one does it cleaner than Zapier. The way I see it, they’re the bread that surrounds a PB&J sandwich. Sure the good stuff is in the middle, but you wouldn’t be able to enjoy it without getting your fingers dirty if it weren’t for the bread.

As Zapier puts it, they make it easy to sync data between web apps; what’s more they can do this now with over 50 apps including Pivotal Tracker, Zendesk, Github, Wufoo, Mailchimp, and Google this that and the other to name drop a few. Read more about their Pivotal Tracker integration.

The entire experience is drag and drop. The functionality is straightforward “if this then that,” or as Zapier calls it, Triggers leading to Actions. Plans range from Free to “I need to think about this.”
