An IFTTT user found that the IFTTT app used 7.5Gb of data… despite only having two recipes (a weather one and a photo screenshot one). When he inquired of them as there wasn’t any corresponding huge chunks of data he could see, IFTTT’s twitter responded:
@senior Apologies about the confusion, active iOS Photos Recipes (even screenshot-based ones) upload all new photos taken on your device.

So now I’m wondering are there other IFTTT channels that will beat the heck out of my cellular data plan?
I love IFTTT, and I hope they correct this quickly because right now this just reeks of being a stupid decision on their part.
Update: As I was typing, I looked – both the Android and iOS Photo channels now say that they upload all the photos. Not sure if it said that before though.
