    While hootsuite is great for many things, we like BufferApp better for scheduling.

    • nathashaalvarez says:

      ahh I get it. I use Hootsuite because I manage three accounts and this allows me to be better organized. I use Buffer for scheduling sometimes. Thanks.

  3. Jonathan Blundell says:

    You left out Pressgram. Pressgram is my go to app for sharing images now – especially because it posts directly to my site so I never have to give up ownership of my photos to another site (which is of course why we all love WordPress in the first place :-)).

  4. Abhisek Padhi says:

    Nice collection

  5. nathashaalvarez says:

    You didn’t put Hootsuite. Is there a reason for that? Thanks for the list.
