I was a big fan of Envato long before I began writing for AppStorm. One of my favorite aspects of the Envato network is the Envato Marketplaces, where I’ve been an author for quite a while. The Envato Marketplaces serve as both an excellent way for designers, developers and musicians to make a little extra income as well as pick up a few quick resources. This ever-growing network of sites includes ThemeForest, ActiveDen, AudioJungle, VideoHive, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean and CodeCanyon.
As an Envato Marketplace author, you frequently have to stop by a site to check in on your earnings, comments, etc. Recently, Envato released an API for the marketplaces that has led to a sudden crop of awesome apps allowing you to perform this task right on your iPhone. Below we’ll take a look at all the apps currently available for marketplace authors so you can decide which is right for you.
“Leaflet is an iPhone app designed for Envato marketplace publishers. Keep track of all of your account related information including comments, earnings breakdown, statement list and receive push notifications for both new sales and comments. You can also respond to comments and view individual statement entries all in one beautifully designed interface.”
Developer: TriLab Media
I think Leaflet is one of the most attractive apps in this category. The dark interface is oozing with style and organizes your important stats into easy-to-read chunks. The app allows you to check and respond to comments and view all the earnings info you’re used to seeing on the sites.
“Nvator is an elegant and native iPhone application which allows you to monitor your Envato Marketplace activities. Nvator is especially useful for keeping track of your deposits and balance when on the road using your existing Envato account. Just enter your username and API key and we will take care of the rest for you.”
Developer: Denon Studio
Nvator is another strong contender in this category. It’s simpler than Leaflet but also a little cheaper. If you just want to keep an eye on your basic earnings numbers, this is a solid option.
“iNvatoo Pro is an application that will undoubtedly delight users Envato Marketplace! Through it you can monitor your account and your Envato Wallet and this, wherever you are! Finally an application that lets you track your sales on the various Envato Marketplace in your currency (32 currencies for moment) and in your language (9 languages available today). A friendly interface will allow you to quickly view your sales and keep track of your earnings over the year.”
iNvatoo Pro has another option that has strength in the interface category. The beautiful leather, wood and paper textures look great with the large, easy-to-read typography.
“With Pocket Palace, you will be able to keep track of your activities on the Envato Marketplaces such as balance, rate, recent sales. Where Pocket Place stands out is that you are also able to browse the marketplaces right there on your iPhone. Search for files or just check out the newest files from a given marketplace. You will be able to search any of the current 7 marketplaces. Enjoy and stay tuned for future releases with more features.”
I love that this app goes one step further and actually allows you to browse the marketplaces in addition to checking in on your own stats. I always like to look around to see what other authors are up to and what’s popular so this feature will definitely come in handy.
“SalesDonkey lets you track your sales and comments on any website from Envato network. This includes ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, ActiveDen, AudioJungle, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean and VideoHive. You can view your recent sales and comments in one place. You can also view your performance graphically by months. This includes sale counts and total earnings. All activity since you last checked is highlighted and if you made some money a nice ka-ching sound is played.”
This one seems fairly simple. You get a basic account feed that includes both comments and sales information in addition to a few sales charts. The reporting doesn’t seem as in-depth as some of the other apps.
“Are you constantly checking your Envato stats? Would you love to be able to check you sales, statement and much more on the go? If you are like me, then that is why I created Viento.”
Developer: Delirium Labs
Viento is the only free app on the list so if you don’t want to fork out some dough, this is your only option. Like Sales Donkey, the feature set is fairly simple, but it should definitely get the job done.
“Monitor your Envato Marketplace sales and products. Sales Summit lists sales for today, this month and summarizes past months sales. A very polished and optimized interface with background updates make quickly checking your account easy. Setup the application using your Envato Marketplace Username and API key and the application will do the rest.”
Developer: Xenon Design
I really like all the options Sales Summit gives you for viewing reports. You can see breakdowns by day, month and specific item. The interface is simple and efficient so if you don’t like a lot of eye-candy, this is a good app to check out.
