Assiduous readers of this blog might have noticed a significant drop in the number of articles last year. Couldn't I find any interesting subject? Was I getting lazy? Hell no!

Today I am pleased to release Clatters for iOS and iPadOS. Clatters is an app to easily monitor in one place your brand, product or any other keyword on your favorite social networks - Twitter, Reddit, HackerNews and even comments on the iOS App Store.

Clatters

Elevator pitch

I created and updated multiple apps for my employers over the years. And with each app, I always encountered the same problems:

  • How to monitor the feedback on social networks?
  • How to efficiently help users on social media?
  • How to measure the user emotion for the app?
  • How to track the evolution of the sentiments over time?
  • How to improve the user satisfaction over time?

The rare existing solutions did not fit my needs or were complex solutions targeting only large companies. So I decided to tackle the problem myself and that's how Clatters was born.

Clatters makes it easy to monitor in one place your brand name, product name or any other keyword on your favorite social networks - Twitter, Reddit, HackerNews and even comments on the iOS App Store.
