Ryan , I just saw your question. How amazing would it be if I was able to get an email notification whenever there is a new post or mention? hull. What's unique about hull is that everything in hull builds on the user profile. No matter what hull engagement feature you add to your app (web or mobile) all information will be captured in a central user profile / graph. These days, companies have a wide selection of engagement features to make their apps social (fast fix, but doesn't solve the real problem, learning more about your users). The hard part is to map all the information about the user in the app back into one central user profile. Most of the time your team is ending up with a disconnected user base and multiple islands where you have to manage those experiences for your customers. Some of the upcoming features will be a new hull dashboard, forum, conversation just to name a few. Happy to jump on a hangout or call to discuss in further detail.
Hull looks like a great way to plug social into your app without spending the extra time on dev. Super friendly team too
I emailed one of the founders when they were in beta a while back. Super friendly. I haven't tried this yet but I'm very supportive of products that lower the "barrier to entry" to prototype or build a product. I include Squarespace, Flinto, Mailchimp (and many others) in that category.
