Create your social content, schedule it on Hootsuite’s calendar, and let the app do the work for you.

Facebook Ads Manager (iOS, Android)
If you run Facebook Ads, this is a must-have app! A crucial aspect of running ads is keeping up with ad performance. Receive updated insights on all your campaigns, manage current campaigns, and even create new ads directly from your phone.
Snapseed (iOS, Android)
With over 25 tools and filters, Snapseed allows you to crop photos freely or to eight pre-set ratios (which include social media post specs). You can also white balance photos to adjust the colors to make your images look more natural, add text, remove items and change exposures, just to name a few of the many features.
DocuSign (iOS, Android)
When working with clients’ sensitive and personal information, you need a secure app like DocuSign. Fill out and e-sign documents on the go, send documents to clients, and securely store, manage and access your documents from anywhere.
Expensify (iOS, Android)
A one-stop shop for tax and finance management. By snapping pictures of your receipts, you enable the app to upload your info for record-keeping. You can also link credit cards for updated expense reports and track your mileage. If you are hesitant to spend too much for a mobile app, this is a great starter.
Magicplan (iOS, Android)
This app will have you feeling like a wizard. Measure rooms and create professional floor plans by taking pictures of your listing. Add furniture and other objects to let clients get a feel for the space, and add personal notes to remind clients what they liked about it.
