Give me five
You don’t need to be a social media expert to know that it’s Facebook that pretty much everybody is using nowadays to ensure they stay in touch with family, friends and work colleagues. You’ll find that the app version of this is even better than the desktop counterpart because it has managed to shrink everything into a smaller area, but still works a treat.
Twitter Andoid App
Twitter is another social media must-have and, again, the app version of the software makes for a fantastic way to stay connected for both posting Tweets and keeping tabs on others activities too. The great thing with most apps that work well is that you can do just about anything on a smartphone that used to be confined to a conventional computer. The Twitter app is no exception.
LinkedIn Social Media App
LinkedIn meanwhile is often perceived as a social media site that concentrates more on the business professional and to a certain degree this is correct. However, now that it has a mobile app version, more and more people are discovering that it’s also another great way to promote your own personal profile. The software is slick, the site looks a treat and if you want to get yourself seen then this is another one to add to the app arsenal.
Google+ Mobile App
Google + is seen by some as a poor substitute for Facebook, but it is actually a refreshing twist on the social media theme. The way that it works is very quick and easy to get your head around, and once you are up and running, the potential for increasing those in your social circles is massive. What’s more, if you’re signed up you also get access to all of the other free Google apps too, such as Gmail and Docs.
Adobe Photoshop Editor
We’re all using a lot more images on our social networking pages now these days; so another software app that’s a definite requirement is that of the image editor. There are plenty of these around, but if you’re looking for a dependable and familiar friend then Adobe Photoshop Express makes a good bet. It’s obviously a lot more trimmed down than the traditional version, but it makes quick and easy image editing on a smartphone a doddle.
Wordpress Mobile App
Meanwhile, if you love to blog then, again, there are countless apps out there in the marketplace that can help you get the job done. Try something like WordPress if you’re a little more advanced, as this can give you some truly powerful tools for social media needs. However, less experienced users might want to try their hand at Blogger, because the app version of this online service is incredibly user-friendly.
