Reminders can be the trigger for a recipe, as we just saw with the Reminders-to-Evernote example, or it can be the action. In this recipe, the trigger is rain in tomorrow’s weather forecast, and the action is a new Reminder telling you to bring an umbrella. Obviously this can be tweaked in any number of ways—snow in the forecast can remind you to leave for work earlier or to wear boots.
Then you just have to set your notifications for Reminders (in Settings > Notification Center) to be all up in your face about those items, and/or get in the habit of checking your Reminders more often—which you should be doing anyway. Recipes like this are really the essence of what IFTTT does: It funnels all the info you might need, from many places into one inbox: ideally, the place you already check, whether that’s Reminders or Gmail or your texts.
