How does the iOS (iPhone/iPad) SDK work?

If you're interested in our iOS SDK, you're probably wondering what the user's experience looks like. Here's a quick walkthrough of our iOS SDK. It can vary slightly depending on how. 

Main Landing Page 

The main landing page allows the user to search, go
directly to posting an idea or sending a ticket. They
can also choose to browse your forum and Knowledge Base. 

Giving Feedback 

Users can search and browse ideas. By default
the ideas will be sorted according to your
settings in UserVoice (i.e. if you sort ideas by
"Hot" on your UserVoice site, they will be sorted by
"Hot" here as well).

When a user searches, we will show matching ideas.
They can also click "Post...." to share their own idea.

Viewing an Idea

When viewing an idea, a user can comment
or choose "I want this" to subscribe to the idea.

Contact Us 

When a user starts creating a ticket,
we try to match them to relevant articles.

If the user doesn't find the answer they need,
they can click "skip" andsend the ticket.
They will be asked for additional details like
custom fields and their email address
(if we don't already have it).
