    "While this app is certainly useful as an analytics tool, I don't think it being so specific is that great a boon for community managers. I feel like it can certainly be a supplement for them, but they would generally need something more than just analytics as they would probably need to be keeping track of a lot of information. I feel like a note taking app or something of the like would probably be better."

    "I think this app has a lot of positives, like the editing feature is pretty user-friendly. Also I like the editing options for my pictures. They are a little more elaborate than the editing app I am currently using (like Be Funky). However, there are some negatives with this app too. There's a bit of a learning curve with how to sync with my Instagram account, and it freezes up quite often. They should rework the interface just a tad to be more user friendly overall, and work out the glitches that are causing the app to freeze. Also, I keep feeling like it's draining the battery on my phone, but I can't tell for sure. Even still, the editing feature alone makes this worth it. "

    "It is a good application although a bit expensive, for someone who only wants to enjoy social networks, but not so much for those who work directly with them, the individual plan gives you very few management options, should expand it, so they could attract more followers , I think that they still need to grow much more to give those prices, they are only 11 cities in america, as I said the application is fine but I still believe that they still need to grow. I imagine they will do it soon as there are more and more followers in the networks."

My main tools are dropbox, outlook, thunderbird, firefox, omnifocus, fantastical, excel, word, and scrivener. Sometimes the tasks I am required to complete are repetitive and time consuming. I had never heard of anything like Zapier, but after reading through the website, it seems like a tool that would make my tech experience far more pleasant and efficient. I find it amazing that you can customize the workflow to make applications communicate with each other and complete tasks with each other. It's like formally introducing my applications to each other. There seems to be a lot of potential with this application. I can see how it can be a very powerful tool for those who use computers every day."
