Android with Facebook

There once was a time before owls and robots got along, but thankfully those days are well behind us. That’s why HootSuite is so happy to release a bigger, better, Androidier version of the HootSuite Android mobile app.

Robot Maintenance

Since launching HootSuite for Android, we’ve heard from Robot enthusiasts the whole world over. So we went to work testing on multiple handsets and gathering feedback and feature-suggestions that have inspired a series of new additions and improvements. The result is a bushel of bug fixes plus a revamped user interface to provide an enhanced experience with all of the core HootSuite tools you enjoy.

The most exciting addition to HootSuite Android is the integration of Facebook.

Now Android users with the HootSuite app can add Facebook accounts right to their handsets, as well as import existing accounts and pages from the HootSuite web dashboard. It’s all sorts of Facebook fun — you can “like,” add comments, and schedule updates too.

That’ll make you and your friends happier!

Get Droided

Pick up your shiny new portable robot owl by downloading Android the app here. And remember, these ‘lil robots are free!

There are Problems, when you want to post a Photo or Status on your "Fanpage" (not you personal page). Broken Link to the Photo, Name of the Poster appears (this is not usual in a fanpage, where just the name of the Page appears as author of a Posting).

I'm honestly very disappointed in the app. Hootsuite has the ability to manage most my social media (even wordpress) BUT the app seems to only work for twitter/facebook home pages. I tried suggested about to get my company page, didn't work. Nor does my linked in or foursquare link up.

I even tried signing up for apaid account thinking that would work. Will play some more tomorrow. If it doesn't paid account cancelled, app deleted. I'll work with Tweetdeck.

I had no problems with downloading and istalling the app! Thank you very much! And the layout is really convenient. I'm on the top of the world!

Is there a way to add a Facebook Page to the Android app? It appears that it only lets you add an individual profile.

Fantastic app! It has helped me manage all my accounts, once integrated to fan pages it will be a must for all business owners to save time.

Great - already downloaded... just one thing: no integration with Facebook Fan Pages for businesses?! :-(

Are you sure it's all available already? The 'lite' link does not work (not found in market) and the version i can find through market search fails to download correctly.
