iPhone apps within the SEO sector has tripled within the last month. There are strengths and weaknesses of using Apps produced by third party companies.
The apps I’m currently using are:
- SEO Automatic Lite
- Link Juice
- View Source
- SEO Pro Lite
Raven is an app produced by Raven the SEO collaboration, reporting and link building tool. The app produces an holistic/dashboard view of each client. Modules available to hide/show summaries are Ranking (SERPs), GA Referrers, GA Summary, GA Keywords, GA Goals, Link Report by Type, Link Report by Website Type, Social Mention. Each of these modules can be refined by date. Sorting of each module gives the user more customisation depending on the style of project. The app, similar to Spotify, only works if you are paying for the Saas service.

SEO Automatic Lite
The app reviews the content within a site for certain tags of which is useful to an extent. The interface isn’t the best, but for a free app, it’s not bad. You get a basic analysis of the following within a page.
- Title Tag
- Description Tag
- Keyword Tag
- Header Tag
- Alt Tags
- H1 Tags
- H2 Tags
The app is very beneficial for those pub chats about niches and domains you’re not familiar with. The app analyses URLs using the API services of SEOmoz, SEMRush, MajesticSEO and Yahoo Site Explorer.
…is impressive. Not only can it store multiple account logins, Summary Reports, Visitor Analysis, Traffic Sources, Content Sources, Multiple Goal Reporting, E-commerce reports but also strong Event Tracking Analysis. This is strongly recommended.
Can you guess what this app does? If this app could produce a more readable way of formatting the code, possibly supporting landscape mode and using Courier font, I would recommend forking out for it.
SEO Pro Lite
The app views very simple data such as Google PR, Alexa Rank (excuse me?), Yahoo Inlinks, Yahoo Indexed, Compete.com Rank, URL Diggs, View Meta Tags. For a free app, it’s worth every penny. I would even purchase the full app.
This app essentially displays missing parts of the above app. It splits .edu, .gov info, displays domain age, del.icio.us and Technorati data. Not really that useful but not bad data nonetheless.
The best apps hands down are Raven, Link Juice and AnalyticsPro. The rest continue to need some improvements. Remember you don’t necessarily need an app if you use SaaS tools. Open the URL within Safari on your iPhone, make a shortcut and place it within your homepage.
