Pull all your Stats Together and Become a StatNut
I’ve always been crazy about statistics & numbers. As someone who spends a lot of time online being active on social networks and managing a bunch of different websites, I have to look and keep track of lot of numbers related to these profiles online. That’s why apps like Analytiks and Ego have long been on the list of apps I always first install on my iOS devices. Unfortunately, while Ego has been the perfect companion to keep track of a lot of stats, it has had to remove most of its supported services recently due to 3rd party API changes it had no control over and the app was recently pulled from the App Store, with the devs working on something new. So I’d say StatNut arrived just in time.
StatNut is a collaborative effort by Shiny Frog and FFFABS that lets you add your accounts on various supported services and it will pull stats from those services and display them neatly for you. The app currently supports Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Dribbble, YouTube, Tumblr and Vimeo. The app features a very pastel colored look with a flat, boxy UI. The colors used for each service look quite pretty and bold along with the icon/logo. Stats are displayed in big numbers, so you can quickly glance at them. Each row for some services extend beyond the display, so you can slowly swipe from right to left to see additional stats. Swiping all the way to the left opens the corresponding profile in the browser while swiping from left to right opens the settings, which lets you update or remove the account. There’s a lovely animation when you pull on each sides. You can pull down to refresh the stats or pull the screen up from the bottom to add new accounts.
The app is a simple, neat little implementation for it to be a central location for all your social network stats. It comes in a light package of just 1.4MB and is updated for the iPhone 5. You can grab it from the App Store for just $0.99.
