Must Have iPhone Apps From Those In The Know!

Mar 7, 2011

I participated in a chat the other day with community managers from all over the country (#cmgrchat if you are interested) and the topic came up of “Apps that you can’t live without” so I decided that it would be a good idea to pull everyone’s must have apps together in a few lists so everyone can know what the cool kids are using these days. If you aren’t familiar with what a “Community Manager” is, the overall idea is that they use all of the social media outlets, among other things, to boost awareness, adoption, interaction, etc. for a company as well as keeping up with any and all cutting edge technologies that help you connect with people. They really know their stuff when it comes to smartphones, so you should probably take their advise and check out these awesome apps!
