App and smart home customisation specialists If This Then That (IFTTT) have launched three new apps designed at creating chains of app commands, as well as renaming its core app to simply ‘IF‘.

IFTTT began life as a service centred around creating chains of simple conditional commands, called ‘recipes’, for apps and web services. It has since expanded into the world of smart home devices, and is valued at around $170m (£110m), making it one of the most valuable IoT companies currently in business.

While the IF app functionality remains the same, the three new apps, Do Button, Do Camera and Do Note provide streamlined variations on the company’s approach to combining different services.

The Do Button app lets users set one-click controls for smart home appliances and other apps, enabling them to adjust Nest thermostats to their ideal temperature, dim smart light bulbs, send pre-set emails and tweets or activate a security camera.

With the Do Camera app, users can create a personalised camera that enables them to share photos in specific ways in just a few button presses, sending family-friendly pics to parents over Gmail while sending creative images to Tumblr or Pinterest and food pics to Twitter.
