    "I love to tweet and use other forms of social media. I downloaded Hootsuite and it was a game changer. I was able to keep everything in one place and manage all my accounts under one app."

    "I manage a large blogging social collective network and am always on the lookout to make my job easier. I decided to try RiteForge based on recommendations from here and from Snapagram. This seems more suited to the person responsible for the posting as you can use it to find the best hashtag and image for your post and it shortens urls as well. Really good for the #overworked but not quite what I was looking for in an app."

    "I was looking for something to help make my facebook page grow even further! When I ran into the product known as Sprout Social, it helped a ton. Allowing me to look through all of my information and even going so far as to help figure out what I need to do to get more views! The graphics were fun and easy to look at, and over all it was great."

    "While this app is certainly useful as an analytics tool, I don't think it being so specific is that great a boon for community managers. I feel like it can certainly be a supplement for them, but they would generally need something more than just analytics as they would probably need to be keeping track of a lot of information. I feel like a note taking app or something of the like would probably be better."

    "I think this app has a lot of positives, like the editing feature is pretty user-friendly. Also I like the editing options for my pictures. They are a little more elaborate than the editing app I am currently using (like Be Funky). However, there are some negatives with this app too. There's a bit of a learning curve with how to sync with my Instagram account, and it freezes up quite often. They should rework the interface just a tad to be more user friendly overall, and work out the glitches that are causing the app to freeze. Also, I keep feeling like it's draining the battery on my phone, but I can't tell for sure. Even still, the editing feature alone makes this worth it."

    "It is a good application although a bit expensive, for someone who only wants to enjoy social networks, but not so much for those who work directly with them, the individual plan gives you very few management options, should expand it, so they could attract more followers , I think that they still need to grow much more to give those prices, they are only 11 cities in america, as I said the application is fine but I still believe that they still need to grow. I imagine they will do it soon as there are more and more followers in the networks."

    "Busy is an app for those of us who are, well busy. It allows us to manage our social media communities in advance and schedule and post things according to plan. It's a great tool that I use everyday."

    "AgoraPulse is a Faceook CRM that came to my attention in April 2013. I initially used the free barometer tool, and was so impressed that I looked into using the whole package. Having to manage multiple pages with different goals, different campaigns, a range of ads and apps can be mind boggling at times. This software has revolutionised the way in which I now manage all these pages."

    "I spend a lot of time on my computer doing several of the same tasks day-in and day-out. My main tools are dropbox, outlook, thunderbird, firefox, omnifocus, fantastical, excel, word, and scrivener. Sometimes the tasks I am required to complete are repetitive and time consuming. I had never heard of anything like Zapier, but after reading through the website, it seems like a tool that would make my tech experience far more pleasant and efficient. I find it amazing that you can customize the workflow to make applications communicate with each other and complete tasks with each other. It's like formally introducing my applications to each other. There seems to be a lot of potential with this application. I can see how it can be a very powerful tool for those who use computers every day."

    "Everypost makes it easy to pull together relevant multimedia content from different sources like YouTube, Instagram, Flickr, and RSS feeds and publish across all your social media platforms. Everypost enables you to customize your content to suit the audience of each social media platform before you cross-post."

    "This is a good entry into a crowded field and it covers the usual suspects -- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. I didn't see anything that made it stand out from other social media management software, unfortunately. A lot of the website is in Spanish also, which makes it difficult to get help if needed."

    "If you love Instagram and want to increase your presence then this may be the app for you. Not only will the app tell you who un-followed you but it also tells you which users don't follow you back. My favorite feature though has to be the insights list. It tells me everything I need to know about what my followers like and don't like. I use this information to adjust my content."

    "To get current responses in a timely manner from consumers and clients, this is the best way to go. No more trying to make sure that the main post of the day for my company to get out into the world and spending hours on hours everyday when with the touch of a button I can get my information out there and see how it would impact the different communities and get a feeling on how to proceed. This is a great help to me as I am a small startup and depend on word of mouth to get an interest going about my "little Bots"."

    "Useful if you are marketing on IG. I guess if you can see who isn't following you back it can help you understand which people *aren't* your market demographic. There are few things more irritating than targeted marketing that misses the mark by a wide margin."

    "AddMeFast is a great social platform which allows other members to share your contents as long as you share their contents in your social networks. It's helps you to increase your followers while you follow them. So, it's kind of like a win-win situation and it has a pretty easy to use interface that is suitable for many social platforms."

    "The world is at your fingertips now more than ever through the internet. If you thought about focusing on Instagram as a career, Boostgram is the perfect choice. Not only does it help you generate followers, you can customize it to target a demographic by gender or location. With no need to download anything complicated, you'll have access to it on your phone to schedule posts and even manage multiple accounts all with 24/7 support if you need anything."

    "Mobilize is an all in one community platform, in which I can efficiently manage new members, boost engagement with features, communicate from one place, send emails, events, and actually build my community in only one place with no third party tools. It's the first scalable membership management platform built for large groups - no member login required and they **also have* an app. Mobilize is also a great solution for organizations. Provides simple membership management tools, you can build connections and facilitate relationships between your organization and its members."
