      "I manage a large blogging social collective network and am always on the lookout to make my job easier. I decided to try RiteForge based on recommendations from here and from Snapagram. This seems more suited to the person responsible for the posting as you can use it to find the best hashtag and image for your post and it shortens urls as well. Really good for the #overworked but not quite what I was looking for in an app."

      "While this app is certainly useful as an analytics tool, I don't think it being so specific is that great a boon for community managers. I feel like it can certainly be a supplement for them, but they would generally need something more than just analytics as they would probably need to be keeping track of a lot of information. I feel like a note taking app or something of the like would probably be better."

      "Crowdfire makes managing your social media a breeze across one platform. You can put the work in now and let the posting take care of itself later and there's no need to monitor. The interface can feel unnatural but once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. It also did seem to pull in many new followers."

      "I think this app has a lot of positives, like the editing feature is pretty user-friendly. Also I like the editing options for my pictures. They are a little more elaborate than the editing app I am currently using (like Be Funky). However, there are some negatives with this app too. There's a bit of a learning curve with how to sync with my Instagram account, and it freezes up quite often. They should rework the interface just a tad to be more user friendly overall, and work out the glitches that are causing the app to freeze. Also, I keep feeling like it's draining the battery on my phone, but I can't tell for sure. Even still, the editing feature alone makes this worth it."
