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.

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.

is incredibly user-friendly.

    Thanks for the list — I love the Twitter and LinkedIn apps. Using the Twitter app is better than using the standard browser website! Even their mobile site is really slick. Facebook really improved their app a lot, too. I guess people are complaining a lot, but now it’s definitely one of my most-used apps.
