Check-Ins with your mobile device

It’s that time of year when many owls are traveling home and abroad to escape the winter blahs or meet friends and family for the holidays. To help make your holiday hooting a little easier, we’ve improved all the mobile owls with updates to HootSuite for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone/iPad.

Each platform has special treats to share with more languages, geo-location tools and other tweaks. Update your device and enjoy the fun!

We’ve eagerly read all of the comments and suggestions and already fulfilled many of the requests. In this new release, we’ve taken a great leap forward by adding some market-leading geo-location tools.

1) Facebook Places – update your profile, including your geo-location info, using this ground-breaking integration

2) Foursquare check-in – let your friends know who’s the mayor of your favorite nest with this interactive location-based game

3) Twitter Locations – add neighborhood or venue data to your Tweets using Twitter’s native geo tools

HootSuite mobile apps will warn when you go over 140 and truncate with "..." if you are over the count.
