Five Android Apps that Enhance your Social Media Experience
Social media has become part of the mainstream in recent years, and it’s no wonder why:
we live in an increasingly connected world where our social networks are just as important to us as food, water, and shelter.
To meet the needs of these digital natives, more and more companies are releasing apps that allow users to enhance their social media experience in new
and innovative ways and these five Android apps are some of the best ones out there right now.
In today’s fast-paced business world, deadlines and meetings are thrown at you from all angles.
Keeping track of it all can be quite a challenge if you don’t use Evernote which makes a whole lot of sense for busy professionals.
With Evernote, you can create digital notebooks on any subject and keep track of them using hashtags.
Task Manager Todoist lets you prioritize, schedule and organize all of your tasks and projects, making sure nothing falls through the cracks.
Free with a premium option $29/year which adds advanced features like location based reminders, labels and priority levels.
There’s also a Chrome extension for managing tasks on desktop.
Offline access for when you’re without Wi-Fi or 3G is provided via Todoist Karma free.
The premium subscription removes advertisements from both versions of Todoist.
Twitter’s mobile app has seen significant improvements over recent months, but there’s still no better way to manage a Twitter account than with third-party apps.
Tweetbot provides a wealth of customization options, letting you tweak and refine your Twitter experience.
You can easily access all of its features from multiple tabs, so it works well even if you have a lot of people to follow and engage with.
If you’re only going to try one third-party Twitter app for Android, make it Tweetbot.
The most significant thing about Instagram is its simplicity.
The entire interface consists of a square image preview and a small toolbar with icons for adding a new picture,
or video clip, or text based caption to an existing image, as well as options for sharing it on different social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.
and saving it in your photo library. There’s also an icon for opening your phone’s native camera app from within Instagram.
All of these buttons are large enough to hit with one thumb without stretching too much, they’re intuitively placed and labeled so even if you’ve never used an iPhone before you can figure them out quickly.
While Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have a lot of users in common, there is one thing they can’t compete with:
WeChat. WeChat is an instant messaging platform like WhatsApp or Slack but with some pretty key differences.
In terms of popularity, it reigns supreme in China where you could argue social media is a bigger deal than in North America or Europe and offers features like location based sharing that are less widely available outside of Asia.
