This holiday season you finally received the Android device you have been waiting for. You might be wondering which apps to download. Considering the wide variety that the Android Market offers, deciding which apps to download first could be a daunting task. Many Android device owners will use them for productivity. It's safe to say, however, that many others will use them for social purposes as well. With that said, here are a couple of social apps that you should look into getting for your Android device right off the bat.
If you cannot be separated from your Twitter account for long, Tweetdeck is the perfect app for you. For starters, Tweetdeck is not limited to Twitter. It allows you to integrate your Twitter, Facebook, Google Buzz, and Foursquare accounts into a single, streamlined app for your social networking needs. Rather than having to sign into each of your accounts separately, Tweetdeck allows you to sign into and sync all of your accounts at once with a single password. So that you do not confuse accounts across the various sites, the app displays icons to help you differentiate between friends and items from Facebook, Twitter, and the other two supported sites.
Tweetdeck offers plenty of customization in terms of its sound and look as well. You can customize the frequency in which you receive updates, and choose between different sounds, vibrations, and lighting for each of your displayed columns. If you are looking for a specific friend or contact to send a message to, the app displays them all in an integrated, concise list for quick access. You also get live Geo data where you can track the locations of your friends' tweets, their check-ins, and more. Tweetdeck's integration of different sites, its customization tools, and ease of use make it a great first app to download in the social networking arena.
Social networks like Facebook and Twitter have taken the online world by storm, but they are not the only methods of communication that exist. Instant messaging is still going strong, and if you are like many people, you probably have various IM accounts spread across different messaging providers. Rather than being prehistoric and using a separate client per account, why not integrate them all into one easy to use platform? It makes sense to do so, and with the Meebo app for Android, you can do it easily.
Meebo is a free download that lets you access your various instant messaging accounts with a simple log-in. Adding accounts to Meebo is simple, and once finished, it will integrate them all into a streamlined interface that helps you view and chat will all of your online contacts. You won't have to worry about missing any important messages, because Meebo tracks history and stays connected no matter where you are. For more sensible organization, the app also keeps your recent conversations at the top of your buddy list in case you need to chat with that recent contact in a hurry. Meebo's easy setup and integration make it another solid choice that you should consider as a social app download for your Android device.
