Raptr homepage for logged-out users. New users simply provide at least one piece of information about the games they like, or their gaming identity, ie. Xbox Gamertag, PSN ID, or Steam ID. Raptr then creates a personalized experience based on the info the user gives.
The logged-in user’s home page. No two dashboards are the same, as content and user activity are unique to each person. This is the default landing page for all registered users, and contains timely, personalized content based on the user’s gaming activity as well as relevance of the content as filtered through our algorithm. In addition, the dashboard provides suggested games that a user may also find interesting as well.
