This is one of those apps that is equally useful for end-users and local business owners. On the users side, they can find local business of their interest nearby and have all their online social activity in a single place. Thus, it's easier discovering promotions, other users' reviews and any other announcement those local businesses make through their social profiles.
On the local business owners side, it's helpful the same way: they can find nearby competitors, know the promotions they are running and see how they do on their social networks. They can get valuable info from their competitors avoiding the nuisance of following them in every social network they are registered. Perch gets local business posts in Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Foursquare and hundreds of deals sites. All brought together in the same place.
The app is set in a cute, minimalist yet intuitive interface. There's no way to get lost. Remember that you must sign up to use the app and enable GPS and geolocation services on your devices to run it properly. Besides, a highly recommended app.

Perch simplifies social and reviews, taking the guesswork out of customer engagement.
Perch brings clarity to social media for small businesses, identifies what’s most important, and offers marketing guidance on how to best engage with customers.
CONNECT WITH CUSTOMERS
Responding to social posts and customer reviews can be tricky. Perch clears up the question of how to reply by identifying both negative and positive feedback, then models the best responses and teaches business owners with examples.
FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT
When it comes to Facebook, Google and customer reviews businesses often struggle to know what’s worth their time. Perch makes it easy for businesses to focus on the social posts and reviews that matter the most by monitoring multiple social feeds, prioritizing them and then advising where and when to engage.
ATTRACT NEW CUSTOMERS
Winning new customers online can feel impossible. Perch helps businesses get recommended by identifying opportunities quickly, encouraging engagement and explaining how to best respond.
STAY ON TOP OF SOCIAL
Perch is the easiest way to watch, learn, and discover what's being shared about a local business and its competition. Scroll a single feed - all in one mobile app - to capture the total online conversation about what’s being said about a business across multiple networks in a timely way.
Keep your finger on the pulse of conversations and monitor how your “share of voice” compares side-by-side with direct competitors. See what types of social content is engaging new potential customers.
STAY INFORMED WITH ALERTS
Did someone just post a photo at your business or write a new review on Yelp? With mobile notifications and scheduled email digests, Perch alerts you as things happen and raises the awareness level of negative reviews. Get guidance on how to best respond- quickly.
