We all have online relationships, between Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, it can be hard to keep track of who we know or follow, and on which social network we do it all on. Enter Friend Check from MobileLife Studio.

Overview

Friend Check allows you to view friends and followers of your accounts on four different social networks. The networks are: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

Using the app you can track who you follow on the four networks, who follows you, who doesn’t, what followers, if any, that you’ve lost, etc.

Friend Check lets you track these relationships over time. It will create snapshots of your various relationships over time, and allow you to view previous snapshots, view former followers, spikes in your popularity, and more.

You can also view your various friends and followers profiles and photo feeds, an follow and unfollow people.

The app has a nice clean design, and allows you to easily add your various social accounts. Connecting to your Twitter and Facebook accounts is quick and easy.

Once your accounts are all setup, you can easily check your connections, or lack thereof to your followers and friends.

Friend Check only does one thing, but it does it well, it lets you track your various online relationships through one easy to view interface.

Verdict

If you have accounts on any of the four social networks Friend Check interfaces with it’s well worth the 99 cents it’ll cost you to try the app. It’s easy to setup, and maintain, allowing you to track your online relationships in one easy to maintain spot.

Friend Check will run on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. (Runs on the iPad as an iPhone app.)
