    +1 for Garmin connect, but IFTTT probably most flexible.

    Also a +1 vote for an official code share repository of some sort for these hooks.

    Thanks, @verstandinvictus for the work you've done so far: https://github.com/VerstandInvictus/NachIOs

    For example, I mentioned weight below. I've got that done now - I text my weight to IFTTT and it gets synced directly to Fitbit and Beeminder, Fitbit syncs it to Cronometer, and then IFTTT uses a Maker action to contact a 3-line Python script I host on Hook.io that sends the weight to the specific Nach tracker I'm using via the API.

    The next thing I'll do will be an email-to-Nach-Inbox pathway, and then probably a Pocket/Nach "to read list" synchronizer and a workout recurring step autocompleter.

    Speaking of all this, @Nach developer(s) - do you have a Github or public place to share code for stuff like this between users? Would be neat.

    Github would be cool - i could sync commits to completed tasks in a given goal/category.

    Honestly a lot of what we've been discussing here is already achievable via a combination of IFTTT's Maker channel (which can make arbitrary unauthenticated HTTP requests) and Hook.io (which can take custom unath'd HTTP requests and execute arbitrary JS/Python/other code, in this case to make a securely authenticated API call on Nach). I've been playing with this workflow and I think it has a ton of potential for automation.

    Pushbullet would be glorious. First for notifications - as an additional option besides SMS and email, that'd be simple to add.
    Next, for us to add our Pushbullet account names to our prefs and then push things to the Nach Pushbullet account, which would automatically be added as tasks to our Inbox.

    This would incidentally add near-perfect Android share button functionality to Nach, since all you'd have to do is share to PB and tell PB to send it to Nach.

    IFTTT would be a fantastic first step and would enable a lot of the rest of this if well implemented.
    Specific apps I'd use:
    Android intents. Holy crap, Android intents. The app, when done, should have an intent that allows almost anything to share to it using the Android system "Share" mechanism, so that I can dump literally any type of data from almost any app into my Inbox while on the go and deal with it later.
    Outlook calendars (Exchange 2013) -> specific goal
    Weight from Cron-o-meter or Beeminder -> specific Nach tracker
    Strava/Runkeeper/Garmin Connect/Fitbit (doesn't matter which) -> complete specific recurring step if activity is logged (be cool to grab cals from this data but not vital)
    Email (could maybe be done via IFTTT) - specific address I (or anyone?) can send a task to to have it show up in my Inbox. An inbound SMS that does the same thing (it'd have to recognize off my mobile number probably) would be cool.
    Amazon Wishlist -> Nach steps
    Mint account balances/debts -> specific Nach trackers

    Will post more if I think of more.

    Comments listing which apps you'd like to be able to pull data from would be useful.
