Best android apps for social networking


Facebook for Android
Social networks thrive with a reliable app, and Facebook’s for Android is solid. The Android app has the quintessential Facebook-branded interface but some unique functionality that’s absent in Facebook’s iPhone app, such as a side-scrolling preview pane of recently shared photos in the dashboard area.


Love it or hate it, no respectable app store is complete without Foursquare, the popular social networking application that lets you check you into locations. You can easily tell your friends where you are, share photos, and view comments. Plus, many businesses offer discounts and freebies to foursquare users, so you may save cash while checking in.


Gmail, Google’s e-mail application, comes to Android devices as a dedicated app. With it, Gmail users can star, label, search, and access synched messages when offline. It also supports multiple Gmail account, so you can check messages from all your accounts on one device without signing out.


Social networks need mobile apps to thrive, and Google+’s is a fine start for the platform that arrived in July 2011. The app taps into conventions established by other online social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, while finding some of its own strengths at the same time. Google+ Mobile works fairly well, due to a smart design and comprehensible interface.

Google Voice

With voicemail, text messaging, and other great features, Google Voice is an excellent service that is a welcome addition to Android phones. Use it whenever your traditional phone carrier would otherwise charge you big bucks—such as when placing pricey international phone calls.
