Five Free Must Have Social Media Apps for iPhone

The iPhone has come a long way since its inception. It broke barriers with its touch screen, web apps, and native apps. With over thousands apps available, it’s hard to decide which ones are worth your while. I’ve spent my fair share of time downloading iPhone/iPod Touch apps and, long story short, I’ve uninstalled a good portion of them. Why? Because they either sucked or I never used them.

Following are Free Five MUST HAVE social media apps on your iPhone:

1. TweetDeck

Perhaps the best free iPhone Twitter client on the market, TweetDeck is quick, has a nice and easy-to-user interface, gives you information about the number of updates right up front, and supports all of your basic Twitter functions. As an added bonus, TweetDeck also supports Twitter groups, so you can organize your tweets. Flipping between sections is easy, and the fast scroll of tweets is nice when flipping through updates.

2. Facebook

Facebook app offer nice and clean functionality on iPhone with features of Status Updates, Like and Comment on news feed including sorting option on it. User profile view is quite tiny but still good to have a idea what’s going on. It allow you to add favorite friends on new page within application to quickly access friends profile. Push notification can be annoying sometimes but can be managed through settings.

3. LinkedIn

LinkedIn app puts your professional network just a touch away. Walk into any interview or client meeting with the ability to look up the details and connect with over 50 million professionals worldwide, in real-time. I personally think that this application required a lot more improvements but still worthing having.

4. eBuddy

eBuddy allow you to have one single buddy list with all your friends from multiple instant messengers and social accounts including [MSN, Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, MySpace, Facebook, ICQ]. On the move eBuddy can replace your traditional desktop clients with features of File Sharing and PUSH notifications (1 hour for free app).

5. Google App

One of most used app on daily basis, to me it seems like LITE version of google’s product which I am sure most of internet use most of their time including Google Mobile App, Earth, Gmail, Maps, Sync and YouTube. Free free to share your most best apps in comments.
