12 Apps to Improve Your Social Media

A strong social media game is a proven fast track to business growth. If you’re not yet operating at full speed across all the platforms, these apps won’t only help you post better and smarter – they’ll make life a bit easier too.

Best For Marketing:


Later recently joined forces with Mavrck to create a single platform offering three key products that could help your business make a splash on social media. Later Social helps you schedule and co-ordinate posts across the big seven social media platforms. Later Influence can introduce you to the right influencer for a particular campaign. Later Link in Bio is designed to drive traffic and revenue from Instagram and TikTok.

Best For Photo Editing:


VSCO will make your visuals so much better. Try the free version of its photo editor first. If its 16 preset filters aren’t enough to take your Insta aesthetic to the next level, become a VSCO member to access a host of more advanced editing tools. Among its 200+ presets, there are cool vintage film filters inspired by the likes of Kodak and Fuji, as well as a choice of frame options. If you’re more of a moving image kind of business, VSCO also has video editing capabilities and a GIF creator. And this is all from your phone, remember.

Best For TikTok:


CapCut is part of the TikTok group – which naturally means it works well with everyone’s new favourite video hosting service. Capcut offers an array of filters, effects and transitions to easily elevate your videos. It’s also simple to add music, stickers and text. Thanks to Capcut’s flexibility on aspect ratios, it will smoothly handle content for Insta too.

Best For Instagram:


There’s not much that unites the App Store and Google Play in their battle to be the top app platform. But they have both handed out awards to Unfold. This simple-to-use app is all about taking your storytelling to the next level. As well as an impressive range of templates, fonts and design elements you can use, it can help you plan your Instagram feed in advance, ensuring you are consistent not just with your aesthetic but also with your time-keeping.

Best For Graphic Design:


If you want to produce social media assets quickly and cheaply, you need Canva in your life. Think of it as graphic design software for non-designers. Its AI-powered tools can help even a novice turn out good-looking videos, images, graphics and animated posts for social media.

Best For Doing It All:


HubSpot can help with a lot more than just your social media, but the crucial feature for us here is its social media management capabilities. Within its marketing hub, you can create, optimise and track online marketing campaigns. Away from that hub, it has powerful sales tools and customer service support that help make it an all-round CRM app to know about. As in, if you’re ready to overhaul not just the way you run your social media accounts, but to rethink customer interactions in order to scale growth, this could be the app for you.

Best For Linking:


You’ve probably seen Linktree all over the accounts of your favourite influencers. It’s the devilishly simple yet mightily effective app that can tell the world everything you are – in just one link in bio. Platform restrictions on clickable links will be a thing of the past – because that link in bio will take your audience to a landing page that can itself link to websites, social media profiles, blog posts, product pages or anything else relevant.

Best For Captions:


So much of social media is image led, it can be easy to neglect the written word – even though it’s essential to message delivery. Copy.ai will give you the language skills you need to create compelling content. It uses AI to craft social media copy, as well as longer-form pieces like blog posts. To set it going, all you need to give it is a few keywords, a nudge about content structure, and an idea about your tone preferences.
