HootSuite launches the app directory with YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr and Get Satisfaction

The HootSuite App Directory platform is live with YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr and Get Satisfaction apps. Now all HootSuite Pro and Enterprise users can share, manage and upload to these content sharing networks. These integrations further expand the HootSuite eco-system and enhance the dashboard’s capabilities as a social media management system. HootSuite basic users will have access to the social content in the near future as well.

Quick and Easy to Use

It’s quick and easy to install apps and add them as streams to your dash. Simply login to HootSuite and navigate to “Tools” –> “App Directory” to install apps. You can then add app streams to any tab in your dash via the “Add Stream” button – just as you would for other social networks in the HootSuite dash.

Info, Help, & Feedback

The HootSuite App Directory provides a platform for external, third party developers to extend the capabilities of the HootSuite dash by building custom integrations. Each app in the HootSuite App Directory is built and maintained by a HootSuite-approved external third party – and in some cases the platform/provider themselves – like David Dmytryshyn from Synaptive who developed the YouTube and Flickr apps for HootSuite, and Mahesh Asolkarwho created the Tumblr app. Are you a developer with an idea for an app? Visit the HootSuite App Directory landing page for more information about building into HootSuite.

Feel free to visit the HootSuite Help Desk for some basic support and guidance on installing apps and adding streams. We’re also always interested in hearing your feedback, so head over to the HootSuite Feedback Forum to tell us what you think. And make sure to follow us on Twitter @HootSuite_Apps for the latest news on what’s coming next.

Quick question: I added the Tumblr app and signed into my respective streams. However, now I've noticed, can I not schedule out posts ahead of time on publisher b/c it's not a "social network" but an app?

I take it this doesn't include the android app? Just the web one?

I'm happy that you're adding these to the basic accounts in the future. Do you have a release date of when HootSuite will allow basic users to use these features for Tumblr, Flikr & YouTube?

New user here, just joined up in the last few months. I manage Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr updates for multiple clients and so I am very happy to see the latest social media platform inclusions. One concern though: While I am able to view Tumblr on my dashboard, it doesn't seem to be available when I try to post or schedule updates to multiple accounts. Is that feature not yet available to Tumblr? That would be disappointing, as scheduling my updates across accounts is incredibly useful. Thanks!

(I looked in Help Desk for assistance with this, but wasn't able to find an answer. If I missed it, just point me in the right direction).

Does this update work on the ipad version of HootSuite? I can't really tell, but I'd really love if it did. Thanks in advance.

Hi Roz,

That's correct. Adding App Directory integrations is on our roadmap but we don't have a definite timeline quite yet.
