      "I wasn't a huge fan of this app. It does help me schedule posts on Instagram, but that's all it does. There are so many apps out there that can do this in addition to dozens of other services, so why would I pick an app that would only do one thing? I didn't find it too helpful. I'd rather go with an app that does way more."

Busy helps me publish my schedule on social media so that all of my friends on instagram, twitter, and facebook can keep with me and amazing life schedule."

      "I didn't really like this app. Sure, it scheduled my posts on Instagram, but tons of apps do that. It seemed to want me to automate my business; like finding and posting things it thinks my demographic would like. I want to do that! I felt like I wasn't really communicating with my clients anymore. Sure, I got likes and comments, but no real connection."

I will say, this app does just that. It posted my pictures at the time I set them to. If you need an app that does just that then download Later. It's easy to use and works great!"

      "As more and more people are reaching out to other friends, family, strangers, or potential customers via social networking, there is a need to connect to all of the different platforms in more efficient ways. Social Sprout has really helped me in this regard in that it helps me to distribute my information about my business across platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I can also schedule when my posts go out to my contacts, and this is great because I can plan out the whole week to change what information is sent out on which days. Social Sprout also allows me to keep an eye out for potential new customers by helping monitor conversations and discussions that are relevant to my business. Social Sprout has really simplified my online marketing and engagement!"
