So, if like me, you enjoying seeing your @Klout and getting informed about how your Klout has increased or finding out who has been generous enough to add you to their list of influencers or even given you a +K in a topic that you are listed in.
Now you can find out while you’re on the move with the Klout for iPhone app, yes it does seem that there is indeed an app for everything these days
Simply visit the iTunes store and download Klout for iPhone and you’re well on your way to getting all the latest information on your Klout account direct to your iPhone.
Features of Klout for iPhone:
-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.
Using Klout for iPhone
It’s really easy to use the iPhone app, simply log in and then you will see your latest notifications from Klout direct on your iPhone, such as the +K’s that you have received and who has been adding you as an influencer etc.
By selecting the profile option on the bottom right of the screen you will be given a clear, easy to read, screen of your profile, with those that you have influenced and your influencers as well as your Klout score and social networks. This is the same as when you click on any profile that you would like to view while on the iPhone app.
By clicking on the settings option on at the top right of the profile screen you can change the way that Klout for iPhone behaves with your notification, as you can see from the screenshot you have three options, which all have an on/off option.
Option 1: Tell me about score changes – This will send a message to your iPhones screen letting you know when your Klout score has risen or fallen.
Option 2: Tell me when I get +K: When someone is kind enough to +K you on Klout you will get a message letting you know who has done it, you can then enter the app and tweet a thank you to them for the +K, the same goes for adding you as an influencer etc
Option 3: Set app badge to Klout Score: Simple really your Klout score will be displyed on your phone on the top right of the apps badge, so you simple look at your phone and there’s your current score.
Overall Thoughts For The Klout For iPhone App
I quite like the way that you can be on the move and get updates on who is giving you Klout and who you are influencing, it’s a nice touch the only issue I have with the app is you can’t give Klout! Strange as it sounds the app doesn’t have the option, so if you want to +K someone you will have to go on your computer for that, which is a real shame as being able to do it from the app would be a really nice touch.
So besides not being able to +K through the app, it’s a fun app to keep you posted about your Klout.
