8 Must Have Android Social Media Apps

Social Media Apps for AndroidWorking as a social media manager full-time, I take it upon myself to make sure I’m updated on the latest news and information related to social media, the internet and the world so I can work on strategies and share them with my team. This may prove to be a daunting task with the vast amount of resources we have. Thankfully, there are various Android social media apps for my phone that help me consume contents more efficiently.

Aside from reading up on social media articles, I also make sure that I share articles I find really useful through my various social media accounts. Hopefully, this list will help you.


Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and LinkedIn

Of course, you shouldn’t be without these apps developed by the various social media sites themselves. The features you use and love on the Web versions are most likely made available on their mobile apps as well since, well, mobile is the future.

Twitter and Facebook apps for Android

I use my Pinterest app for Android for pinning, liking or even organizing my Pinboards. I use Facebook and Twitter for posting images I find amusing that I’d like to share with my network. I use Instagram for almost exactly the same reason.

I Miss My iPad

Back in 2009, I won an Apple iPad from an online blogging contest I joined. Imagine winning something as valuable as an iPad. Back then, it costs around Php 18,000+ (around $440) in Greenhills, so it was indeed something I was ecstatic about. However, last year, we had to part ways for some reason. I guess it’s because I was aiming for another gadget and I felt like I wasn’t using my iPad as often as I thought I would.

Fast forward to today, I am missing having my iPad around. I use it to read ebooks, do my regular browsing on my favorite social media, news, tech and entertainment sites, and catch up on some of the blogs I follow. I prefer its touchscreen and how much portable it is compared to my laptop. And I’m not comfortable reading ebooks on my laptop.

Enjoy browsing through The New iPad

As much as I want to buy a Kindle instead, I am now aiming for The New iPad. I want to start reading again and catch up on some of the books I haven’t finished because I have no proper medium to read them without straining my eyes.

I am already canvassing and comparing prices. I’ve also tried finding great coupons online for gadgets and sites that have promos for the iPad I want. But, I have to hold off on this plan since I’m also preparing for our 4-day, 3-night vacation in Bohol that’ll coincide with my birthday. I think I’ll just take care of an extra battery or battery grip for my DSLR (Nikon D3100), so I can take photos like there’s no tomorrow during our vacation. Need to scour the web for the best prices for the battery or the grip too. I have’t found any online voucher codes that I can use, so I’m sticking with the same online gadget store where I bought my Canon digital camera back in 2010.

The resolutionary

I’m currently reading a Michael Pollan book, but I can’t seem to stay long reading through my laptop’s screen, so I’m looking forward to getting me an iPad before this year ends. It’ll be like my Christmas gift to myself. 😀

Oh wait, I’m also thinking about getting an Android tablet instead after some of my friends’ recommendation. What do you think?
