Review from Tom Betz
Jan 30 2013 update fixed my Droid's troubles... ... and uninstall/reinstall of the Jan 30 update fixed my CM9 Touchpad's problem. Hootsuite is once again the most reliable and serviceable Twitter app on either of my Android devices. Either they haven't updated to Twitter's new v1.1 API, or they've managed to avoid the killer pitfalls every other twitter app not owned by Twitter has fallen into the last few weeks.
January 30, 2013Update: Another user with a similar error as you has fixed the issue with a reinstall. Clearing the cache did not help? Could you try a reinstall. Do you have CM on all your devices? It runs fine on all of our devices although they are all on Stock OS. It should be opening to a blue-ish color, not black.
Changed the Way I Use Social Media This app has made managing the social media for my organization so much easier! I can create, edit, and schedule posts to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook from the same screen. I can even make the same post publish to all three sites at once! Easy to use and so convenient. Seriously a life saver for anyone trying to manage more than one social media profile, either personal or professional.
Feeds don't load most of the time after this update Most of my streams do not update or come up blank after this last update. To get them to update I have to keep randomly clicking back and forth between streams or force close the app. And it's about time you added threaded DMs. Such a basic feature at this point.
Hootsuite android app has fallen WAY behind in supporting additional networ Hootsuite has had G+ pages posting for a year, yet the android app has not caught up. Hell, now you can even post to personal profiles on G+ from mobile apps.. Can you include G+ (both personal profile posting and page posting) available from the android app now? Can you include tumblr as well? how about including pinterest while you're at it? That will TOTALLY make the monthly subscriptions worth while to users
Such a horrible company I truly hate hootsuite. The product is very hard to use. The detail is overwhelming and yet there are a lot of things it can't do. Also the customer service is terrible. If you have a billing question forget about getting real help you are pretty much screwed.
The android app is basically bs now. None of the streams come up like they used to. I wouldn't pay for hootsuite with the amount of down time, issues and errors on both the app and web version. Every other week there's at least one issue. Now the android app is worthless! Yeah, you can post, but the streams is why hootsuite is useful. If they don't show up hootsuite is worthless. This was one of my favorite apps/services. Unfortunately, it's become a headache. Lucky for them there's no reliable alternative. Makes me miss the old TweetDeck before twitter bought them and destroyed them. I hope they fix things soon. At least for the sake of their paying costumers.
Makes social media so much simpler As someone who hates social media but has to do it for the sake of my business, hootsuite has made it incredibly easy and quick to get to grips with. I know longer spend my life aimlessly staring at social media feeds!
This is a small update that fixed two issues with the new @mentions functionality in the compose box. Previously, when you mentioned a user and then used a recent hashtag or shrunk a link the mention would break. That's been fixed.
Since this is a big new feature we're really keen to hear your feedback. Reach out to us on Twitter @HootsuiteMobile and let us know what you like and what you'd like to be improved. Thanks!
