    Yeah I saw that announcement. Very interesting indeed. Reminds me I have a Zapier account too and wonder what I could use it for within Centmin Mod features :D

    Yeah, the cloud is just for them so that they can see what is going back and forth better until they feel confident about releasing it to others.

    IPS devs are going to start developing on it I believe. If IPS devs want to tap certain features that can only be tapped via a Zapier app, they will create a Zapier apps, not an IPS apps.

    Someone said that 3rd party won't be able to access Zapier IPS apps or something. That devs would have to develop their own Zapier app to work with the IPS Zappier app. IDK. I haven't had a ton of time to look it over.

    I have no idea how Zapier works yet, if there is an advantage to creating the Zapier app vs. the IPS app, devs will probably go with that option.

    All I know about Zapier is that, limited or expensive.
