In February, Klout acquired my startup, Blockboard. The idea was that by joining forces we could quickly bring Klout to mobile phones and expand our understanding of influence in the real world. Since then we’ve been hard at work with our new colleagues and today I’m pleased to announce Klout’s first iPhone app! You can find it in the iTunes App Store here.
Klout for iPhone v1.0 helps you keep track of your influence wherever you go. Want to know your Klout Score without even opening the app? Just look at the Klout icon on your home screen. Your Score is right there, always up-to-date. And when your Score changes or someone gives you +K, we’ll send you a push notification to keep you in the loop.
Inside the app, you’ll find it’s easy to get a snapshot of your influence. You can view your own Klout Score and your influential topics. You can also discover and browse the people who influence you online.
As a bonus, your Klout Score will instantly go up by 10 after you install this app, and Justin Bieber will personally visit your office. (I kid, I kid.)
This was a fast-paced project, going from zero to code-complete in under seven weeks. We’re very happy to be sharing these first efforts with our users. There’s much more to come, including an Android version and the ability to give out +K. Give the app a try and let us know what you think!
