Best social apps for Android

We are going to take a look at some of the best social apps for Android now, aside from the obvious choices like Facebook and Twitter. Some of the best apps for Android are not always easy to find and we are going to run through 5 lesser known 3rd party clients to improve your social experience.

We will start with Flipboard which is free on the Google Play Store and groups all of your social news together in a beautiful magazine like format. This app is already very popular, giving users a blend between worldwide and social news. You can sign into all of your social apps in Flipboard and it will integrate the most relevant information together in a smart layout.

For those of you looking for a 3rd party Twitter client, consider the reliable and stable app Plume. If you want to manage multiple Twitter accounts and prefer a simplistic but feature driven experience, this is an app for you. Plume has been described as limited and brief, which can be used as an advantage if want a cut down social feed, it is free but you can upgrade to the full version for $4.99.


Buffer is another good free app you can download, although a premium version is also available to remove ads. What Buffer essentially does is allows you to easily manage multiple social accounts simultaneously, proving features such as post scheduling. The app simplifies sharing and allows you to select any form of media, choose where you want it posted to and the time you want it done.

The next app we will look at is a Reddit client which allows you to navigate all of your social feeds with a clear and simple user interface. Reddit Sync Pro costs $1.99 although you can download an ad version for free, you can customize the features of the app to your liking and sync various media to the device. This Reddit client is certainly one of the best Android apps out there right now.


The final Android app featured is Talon for Twitter which allows you to experience your tweets from a different angle, giving off a sleek and beautiful browsing UI. Talon is less reliable than Plume and still needs a few tweaks but can be customized more and is packed with features like a theme engine which regularly produces visual updates for social news. The app will keep you updated with all the recent trends, costing $1.99.
