Buffer App

I have used Buffer app for a long time and it solves a  very basic problem in sharing content on social networks – over sharing. If you have not used Buffer and you tweet a lot, you need Buffer to space your tweets apart or distribute them in scheduled intervals so that your followers won’t receive consecutive tweets invading their Twitter timeline or Facebook news feeds. In many ways, it makes you more courteous. Buffer apps makes you more productive too because it gives you the opportunity to optimize and tailor your tweets or posts delivery date.

Buffer app works stand alone as a web app, browser extension and mobile app. I am going to focus on web apps integrated  with Buffer because these apps give users flexibility in sharing content.

So let’s start the list for 7 kick-ass web apps integrated with Buffer app.

7. Twylah

Twylah brings focus to your Twitter stream and it makes it easy to organize what topics you are tweeting about in Twitter. You can embed Twylah widget in your blog to display your trending topics. You can also host your own Twylah page on your domain to give your readers a clear overview on what you are talk about online.

You can use Buffer when doing Power Tweets. A Power Tweet is simply a tweet sent from Twylah which includes a custom landing page. It’s great for tweeting videos, photos, audio and other interactive media.

6. IFTTT

If This Then Than (IFTTT) is a service that uses different web apps or even real-life objects like WeMo to let you combine triggers and actions using channels (apps/object). These combinations are called recipe.

Buffer is included in the 1st batch of channels available in IFTTT.

5. Strawberry Jam

Strawberryj.am is one of the first, if not the first, 100% friend based trend spotter for Twitter. It compresses similar tweets of people or brands that you follow.

4. Kippt

I only discovered Kippt recently because I am Delicious fanatic. It is a link saving site similar to Delicious but it seems to be influenced by Instagram and Pinterest design. Functionally, it reminds me of Spring Pad without the thumbnails and images.

What’s different with Kippt is that it is integrated with a lot more social networks. Aside from Facebook and Twitter it connects to Tumblr and App.net too. You can also read your links later with Instapaper, Readability and Pocket.

3.  Jugnoo

Jugnoo is a relatively new social CRM. It has many bells and whistles needed for your social media campaign including social post, social dashboard, social search, Facebook coupons, video creation and distribution and a lot more.

Buffer app integration comes in social post feature.

2. Tweriod

The Buffer app + Tweriod combo is one of the best method to maximize scheduled tweets.

Tweriod can analyze your last 1,000 followers for free to give you the best time for scheduling your tweets. Then, you can use the proposed time from Tweriod to Buffer using their integration.

1. SocialBro

SocialBro is a powerful browser app that became even more powerful when it was made available in the cloud recently. You can get accurate information about your community, find the best time to tweet, know the time zones of your followers, monitor your follower grow, filter and sort followers/following using different criteria as well as manager your Twitter lists.

The integration of Buffer comes in Best Time to Tweet (BTT) feature. You can use the data from SocialBro BTT and import it to Buffer to define your custom schedule.

As you can see above, Hootsuite also entered the scheduled Tweets space and is also integrated with SocialBro.

There are many more social tools trying to do what Buffer has done but what makes Buffer special is its deep integration with these web apps and native mobile apps.

Commun.it will soon have Buffer app integrated as well. Commun.it makes it easier to build relationship and manage your community.

Update: Commun.it has now shipped the Buffer app integration, live:

I have not included extensions and native mobile apps here because at least in Android Buffer can be integrated really easily with built-in Android sharing feature. In IOS not so much but I am seeing similar trend — more and more social media tools are integrating Buffer.

    Excellent roundup of these apps that integrate with Buffer. I’m a big Buffer fan, but was disappointed when IFTTT lost integration with Twitter. I used IFTTT with Twitter and Buffer a lot but these apps show me great ways to make even better use of Buffer! Thanks, Marck.
