IFTTT adds a location channel for its iOS app

Good news for the iPhone-toting(s aapl) If This Then That lovers out there. The service has added a native iOS location tracking channel, which means you can make recipes based on where you are (or rather where your phone is). So you can get the weather of a city you are traveling to when you land, or tell your WeMo, Hue or SmartThings-enabled lights to come on when you get home. IFTTT also has a FourSquare channel for those who might want to use location but don’t have an iPhone. It’s just a wee bit less automated.

Foursquare head of product Alex Rainert leaves amid company’s latest rollout

After raising $41 million in debt financing to produce a “smarter” Foursquare with a more robust ad platform, Foursquare has a casualty of its dramatic change: Head of Product Alex Rainert announced via his blog that he is leaving the company. AllThingsD reports that the longtime employee will not be replaced. Instead, CEO Dennis Crowley has split up Rainert’s work between Ad Product exec Noah Weiss and Marketing VP Jon Steinback. Rainert assures the departure won’t shake up the product, which continues to expand this month to more iOS users.
