Posted March 21, 2012 by kennyp in Apps
If you use your Android smartphone or tablet for communicating with friends then nabbing the best social media apps is a must. But between officials offerings and the unending slew of third party apps aimed at helping you to better utilize Facebook, Twitter, chat services and the like, it can be difficult to determine which of the many apps available will bring real value in usability to your device.
In the interest of helping you to narrow down the choices, here are three of the coolest Android apps that help you to connect with your social circle in helpful ways:
Foursquare is an interesting free app designed to allow you to better explore the world around you, no matter where in the world you are, with excellent geo-location features offering you deals at local shops and restaurants and connecting you instantly with nearby friends.
If you’re a user of multiple social networks, HootSuite has you covered. Manage Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare all from a single, intuitive interface.
Dedicated real-time chat clients are always iffy on mobile platforms but Palringo for Android is a pleasant surprise among the hundreds of badly designed and ultra-buggy chat apps. Supporting MSN/Windows Live, AIM, iChat, ICQ, Yahoo!, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, Gtalk and Facebook chat, Palringo eliminates the need for many apps while making chat as fun and easy as it is on a PC.
