Leave your sad laptop at the desk, grab a cup of steaming hot black coffee, put your feet up – and start exploring App Store. Your iPad will soon be your favourite device for all of your Social Media acitivities.

Below are 10 apps I recommend you try out. You probably know some or most of them already? If not – go for it!

Here goes:

1) Tweetbot: The best Twitter app I´ve tried so far – and I have tried them all. (Follow @CatoHoberg on Twitter!)

 

2) Proinsights: Impressive, informative and slick app for LinkedIn-users with small/medium/average sized networks. Powerusers don´t even need to download – the app just crashes if your network is too big. For the rest of you: A «show-off» – app if I ever saw one. Cool.

 

3) about.me: The gateway. All your web presence at one site. As they say: «Make it easy for people to learn about you and find what you share»… (Visit http://about.me/CatoHoberg )

 

4) Followorks HD: Userfriendly «Twitter-follower-manager». Nice.

 

5) Blogsy: The best blogging app for iPad. (This article is posted by Blogsy on iPad).

 

6) Unfollow: Another Twitter «unfollow» tool. Handy.

 

7) Evernote & Dropbox: A marriage made in heaven. Makes your Ipad complete. Maybe not in the category SoMe-apps per se, but you just can´t do without them if you actively post/upload.

 

8) HootSuite: The most popular Social Media Management Dashboard. Be patient.

 

9) Klout: Measure your SoMe progress/influence. Quote: «Klout’s mission is to empower every person by unlocking their influence». Unquote. Visit http://klout.com/#/CatoHoberg

 

10) Flipboard: After you´ve installed and configured Flipboard, connected all your social media accounts and selected your interests, this app provides you with a streamlined, stunning presentation of all your streams/news feeds in a glossy «magazine» format. A must-have.

These are just some of the apps on top of my mind, the list could easily become huge. What´s your top ten? I would love to see your lists!

Comment: I take it for granted you have installed all the SoMe basics* before you consider this list. *Official apps for i.e. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Xing, Viadeo – and of course WordPress if you´re a blogger…

Happy padding!
