      "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."

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."

      "According to the Google search results, "a community manager is responsible for advocating a brand on social networks." That being the case, this does appear to do just that. Though not technically an app as it is a standalone site, it does look like it meets the criteria."

      "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."

The interface can feel unnatural but once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. It also did seem to pull in many new followers."

      "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."

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."
