Klout has released their official iPhone app for download. For those that care, a user’s Klout score is your social media ‘influence’ based on the activity of your social media accounts. Some people take it seriously and consider it the standard to see how they stand in the social media world. Others balk at Klout, claiming a random algorithmically-generated score means next to nothing.
Regardless of what you think of Klout, here are the features of their iPhone app:
-The Klout icon on your home screen shows your Klout Score so it’s always visible to you, even if you are not using the app.
-The Notifications tab updates you about changes to your online influence. You will know any time your Klout Score changes or when someone gives you +K.
-The Profile tab displays your Klout Score, your influencers and more.
-The Klout app is customizable, allowing you to choose what notifications you will receive and what features you want to use. If you wish, you can also turn off display of your the Score on the Klout icon.
The Klout app is well-designed and very easy to use. Just sign in with twitter or facebook (if you’ve already linked your twitter account to iOS, it’s super easy) to get access to everything you want to know about your Klout score. The Klout icon on your homescreen will reflect your score using the red notifications badge. Clever.
