Those who like to see how important they are can now look at their Klout score at any time on their iPhone via the official app. You can use the app to look at your Klout score (Klout measures influence based on your interaction on social networks; for example, how many people like your Facebook posts), or to discover new people on social media. You get to see your score all the time, since you can see it from the home screen, even if you're not using the app. If you still miss when your score goes up and down, you'll get notifications. Alternatively, you can choose to forgo all of that by turning off these features.
