HootSuite for Android Released and iPhone App Updated

HootSuite expands mobile offerings with a new Google Android™ App and updated iPhone® App – both available in full and lite (free) versions. The social media dashboard allows users to manage multiple Twitter accounts, compose and schedule messages, and track statistics on the go. The updated iPhone App also includes Facebook integration and landscape view feature.


Vancouver, Canada, March 2, 2010 — Building on the success of the HootSuite iPhone® App, the popular social media dashboard today launched a new version for Android™ – Google’s open mobile platform – as well as an updated iPhone version featuring Facebook integration.

HootSuite – primarily known as a Twitter tool for professionals – helps marketers, support desks and collaborative teams use the popular micro-update tool to outreach to audiences, track conversations, and strategically publish messages. With the new mobile versions, professionals can stay connected to their promotional campaigns from virtually anywhere and all users can also choose a Lite version available free on both platforms.

With the release, Android customers will enjoy the same tools as iPhone users, including:

  • Managing multiple Twitter accounts
  • Creating streams for #tags and searches
  • Scheduling messages for the future
  • Adding followers to lists and accounts
  • Explanations for trending topics
  • Sharing photos and shortening URLs

The full-featured versions for Android and iPhone allow unlimited Twitter accounts plus on-board, click-through statistics tracking whereas the Lite versions – available for no cost – are limited to three Twitter accounts.

The updated full iPhone App (to be released within days) features the highly requested additions of Facebook integration and landscape view. Existing customers who purchased the app will receive a update at no cost.

Both platforms are tightly integrated with the web version so current HootSuite users can quickly import accounts with help from a powerful wizard allowing them to sync workflow from desktop to handheld and not miss any messages.
