What can you use the app for?

Clue gives users a way to monitor how well their site performs in the eyes of visitors. The application works by allowing the user to submit a URL. The application turns the URL into a five and a half second test that the user can share through Facebook, Twitter, email or as a URL they can place anywhere. The user is given 24 hours to spread the URL around and get others to visit it and complete the test. Clue gathers the results and presents them to the user. The information obtained can help the user identify any weak points in their website. They can see which items and content users see and which go unnoticed when visitors stop by. Users can also compare competitor’s website to see how well their own URLs measure up in the eyes of visitors.

Just below the logo, users can find the website submission tool. Below that, the user can find purple and white icons that explain how the site works.
