Editors' review

HootSuite for Android lets you sign in to your Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare accounts from a single application window. While the app may not be versatile enough for the most active social media personalities, it is a convenient option for frequent users of these three social networks.

The first thing you should know about HootSuite for Android is that it's nowhere near as powerful as its browser-based sibling. While the desktop version lets you sign in to and post from no fewer than nine different networks, the Android app is limited to the three mentioned above. That said, the Android app does give you a fair amount of power to work from your accounts on these three networks.

HootSuite's beauty really lies in its powerful posting capabilities. It lets you post to multiple accounts, attach pictures, shorten links, and add geotags with ease, all from a single "Compose message" screen. It even lets you schedule posts and track statistics, which most other clients can't do. So, if you're looking for that extra level of control, HootSuite really is your best bet.

On the other hand, we didn't like HootSuite's rather unattractive interface. While it is easy to navigate, the main dashboard is a simple vertical list of all your streams. So, when you follow multiple social-networking services, each with four or five streams, things can look a bit cluttered. Fortunately, you can add, delete, and rearrange streams with ease, but we still wish HootSuite were a bit cleaner visually, and perhaps incorporated some icon-based navigation.

Despite its unattractive interface and relatively thin support for different social-networking sites, HootSuite for Android is still a convenient way to post to Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare all at once. Plus, it offers some unrivaled features like post scheduling and statistics tracking, which make it overall a worthwhile download.
