Content Stream (Searches, RSS Feeds)
The Mobile iPhone App offers a navigation bar at the top of the content stream that will allow you to access your list of searches, RSS feeds and tags.
If you are viewing a post from YouTube, you can watch the video without leaving the App.
Tag and Share Articles
You have the ability to easily tag an article from each card. You can search for an existing tag or create a new one. Sharing options include email, text and all networks or apps installed on your phone.
Similar Articles (Duplicates)
Similar Articles brings up an overlay with all of the similar articles listed by publisher. You may tag or share similar articles by swiping to the left.
*Pro Tip: If you are using push notifications and would like to stop receiving duplicate notifications of articles, you may turn those off. Just make sure you have the latest version of the mobile app downloaded and follow the directions to do so in this article.
In-App Article View (Webview)
To read the full article, click on a card and the article will load in the app. You may share and tag the article from the webview. Swipe from the edge of the screen to go back and forward in the web browsing experience.
The inbox list displays all News/Social Searches, RSS feeds, and Tags for your account. You can type to filter and easily find a specific content stream you are looking for.
Favorites is a new feature which allows you to promote searches, RSS feeds, or Tags to the main menu for easier access. This feature allows users who share an account with many searches to easily reach the ones they care about most, or enable a single user to quickly get to their most important search or tag without having to scroll through their inbox list.
'Glances' give an overview of what’s going on in your search without the need to read articles. In a quick glance you can see how many articles are new today, the recent trending themes in your search, and the overall change in sentiment. Glances quickly convey what is going on in a given search and reveal anything pressing which may need attention or require further drill down to understand. Clicking a glance reveals a graph which conveys these trends over a period of one week and allows you to drill down further.
Graphs (Expand from Glances)
'Graphs' convey the given trend over a time period of one week and allows you to see when specific changes occurred. You can then see the articles powering a given trend by clicking on the list of options under the graph.
Clicking on the graph will reveal the number behind the data. In the case of the Media Exposure and Sentiment Score graph click on the vertical space above a date to get the number on that date. In the case of Trending Themes, click on the row of the top trending keyword you’re interested in to reveal the count of that keyword in articles on for each day that week.
Article Filtering (Graph Drill Down)
You can see the articles powering a specific trend, sentiment, or date by clicking the filters under each graph. This allows you to understand exactly what is going on behind specific trends and easily find, tag, and share the articles which matter most.
You can run ad hoc searches and quick analytics into your search topic's volume of coverage, top sources, trending themes and sentiment.
Make sure you've downloaded the latest version of the app to view the newly released Explore option.
