4 New social media apps to download right now
Mobile by Dan Osburn
Social and mobile are increasingly entwined. It should come as no surprise that some of our favourite social services also have great mobile apps on offer.
Here are four of our favourite social media apps right now:
Klout for iPhone
The standard social media metric now has it’s own iPhone app. Devoted Klout users can stay on top of their Klout score, incoming +K and influencer lists on the go.
Particularly nice is how the app uses the iPhone’s notification badges to display users’ Klout score right on the home screen.
Download it for here. Coming soon to Android.
Linkedin for iPad
Linkedin for iPad fundamentally alters the Linkedin experience, putting the focus on aggregating users’ social news stream. The new “updates” feature beautifully displays updates that users’ friends have shared in line with “professional news” such as career changes.
The app also boasts Google Calendar and Exchange calendar integration so that users never miss a meeting while getting caught up on their morning news.

Streamified for iPhone and iPad
Streamified aggregates user’s disparate streams from various social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and even RSS feeds and displays them in a simple, beautiful Pinterest-like display.
Users can bookmark high-impact posts and come back to them later with one touch.

Twitter for iPhone, iPad and Android
The native Twitter application has had an update that improves the Discover, Search and Notification functions. The Discover function now gives users a birds eye view of who their connections follow, updates to their lists, and which Tweets they retweet and favourite.
