Desktop Twitter client HootSuite has made the jump to mobile with a new app for Android. It seems Android Twitter apps are born faster than the average American birth rate, but HootSuite has the brand recognition to carve its own lane as “the professional Twitter client” geared towards people who need analytics and other business-centered features.
HootSuite comes in two forms: a paid app that costs $1.99 and a free Lite version. The difference between the two is that HootSuite full has unlimited accounts and stats, while the Lite is limited to only three accounts and has no stats. Features include:
# Managing multiple identities and accounts
# Creating custom views for tags and searches
# Understanding reasons for trending topics
# Scheduling messages for the future
# Adding followers to lists and accounts
# Sharing photos and shortening URLs
# Plus HootSuite Android version includes a few new tricks
You may notice a couple of similarities between HootSuite and Swift. It’s because the developer of Swift was involved in building this app.
