Tracking your online accounts can be a difficult process. However, the folks behind Static for iPhone hope to make this easier by bringing some order to your online life. Available for $0.99, Static for iPhone is an easy way for content creators to keep up with how well their content is doing in their favorite social channels. At release, Static supports Twitter, Instagram, Google Analytics, Dribbble, and Github. Once a service is added, you’ll have instant access to general stats such as the number of followers, site visits, tweets posts, etc. You can also access the service directly from the app. This, of course, is assuming that an app for the service is installed on the iPhone. Other services should be added soon. In fact, you can count on it. Static includes two unique features that make it easy for users to request new services. The first relies on Twitter integration. By selecting “request a service,” a user can tell their friends which new services they want. As such, the more requests a service receives, the more likely it will be included in a future app update. Meanwhile, Uservoice integration allows users to post which services or features they’re interested in. In doing so, other users can vote for them. Take a look: Static for iPhone is definitely a work in process, not that this is a bad thing. It will be interesting to see how it develops in the future.
