App of the Week: Hootsuite
Today’s app of the week, Hootsuite, made its debut appearance on the Google Play Store last year and has been recognized as one of the most elegant, user-friendly, secure and feature-packed third-party Twitter clients ever since. So, consequently, we’ve decided to bring it its very own review here at Cult of Android.
For those of you unaware, Hootsuite for Android provides its users with all the tools they could possibly need to manage and schedule posts, which can then be shared on multiple social media profiles, such as Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and LinkedIn.
Hootsuite permits users to receive optional notifications for Twitter updates, so they can keewp up to speed with their latest favourites, mentions, listings and conversations, in addition to having the facility to track results, like, for example, the ability to view the amount of people that tweeted about a particular topic.
If you’ve been contemplating getting this app, it may help to know that it incorporates a very nifty feature which allows its users to manually schedule Tweets for a specific future date. Alternatively, they can use the AutoSchedule tool, which scans a user’s followers and detects the optimal posting times, which is set to guarantee the most engagement from their followers.
If you find yourself tweeting a lot of external links, Hootsuite’s the perfect client for you. The development team created their own link shortening service, entitled Ow.ly, which automatically condenses links that are tweeted. Users then have the opportunity to view click-through stat reports at a later date — giving them the means to build their audience and monitor their social presence.
Hootsuite is optimized for both Android-powered smartphones and tablets; so users won’t find themselves facing any fragmentation issues.
