Campaign Monitor app launched: Monitor

A new Campaign Monitor app has been launched: it’s called Monitor. It allows you to see new subscribers join your lists. It also shows subscriber activities on World View, like clicks and opens. The Campaign Monitor app is free in the iTunes App Store: for now it’s only available for the iPhone.

Here’s what it looks like:


This is the main activity option: it also allows you to see live campaign activity like the aforementioned opens and clicks. An example screenshot below:


When you switch to World View, you can tilt your iPhone so the Campaign Monitor app can take the full width of your device to show the activity on the map:
