HootSuite Mobile Header 600

These days, the job of social media manager cannot be confined to a single desk. In these days of real-time marketing, savvy social media champions need to take advantage of the computing power in their pocket.

To that end, we’ve added even more mobile features, with new updates to the HootSuite for Android and HootSuite for iPhone/iPad apps. First released for Hootlet and then the web dashboard, HootSuite users can now use AutoSchedule to post social messages from their mobile phones. Whether you’re sharing a webpage, a helpful article, or your own witty musings, AutoSchedule makes sharing easy by automating the posting times.

That’s not all. We’ve rolled out more goodies to help make your HootSuite mobile experience that much better – including localization into Traditional and Simplified Chinese.

Put the power of the dashboard in your pocket:


Since August 2010, 3.75 million users have downloaded HootSuite mobile apps. Have you?
