If you’re anything like me, you’re probably attached at the hip to your social networks. However, I know I’m not the only one who has many that I’ve abandoned simply out of frustration of having to constantly check and update different pages or apps for each one. With this in mind I’ve put together a Favorite Four that the update-aholics can appreciate. Here are a few of my favorite iPhone apps to update multiple sites at once.
I put this one here first not because it’s necessarily the best, but it is definitely one of the more well-known. Tweetdeck is what I personally use most often since I’ve cut down my addiction to just the essentials, Twitter and Facebook, which is exactly just what Tweetdeck works with. It’s a great app for both reading and updating. While it hasn’t been updated in many months, it is still very useful and you can’t argue with free!

The definition of simplicity. A newer app that simply allows you to post to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and/or Myspace. While as of now there isn’t the option to post photos with your status messages, it’s one of the most cleanly designed apps I’ve seen that handles multiple accounts. For the newer user this is a fantastic place to start and hopefully in future updates they’ll add more features without cluttering it up.

If you looking for the simplicity offered with something like Sociable, but you’re looking to update up to 40 Social Networking sites at once, you’ll want to get your hands on Pingle. It uses your ping.fm account (which you do have to set up separately on the site) to post to all of your subscribed networks. Unfortunately it hasn’t been updated in over a year, and probably won’t work with some of the newer iOS functions like multitasking. Still one of the best (and only) Ping.fm apps available.

I should start by saying this is probably for Advanced Users Only, not a beginners app. Like ping.fm Pixelpipe offers uploading to 75 Social Networking and Blogging sites. One of the best and most unique abilities of this app is the option to batch-send photos to Facebook, which is something most apps lack, and a feature I think most people would love. You’ll have to understand the settings and how to post to each type of feed, but once you do it’s simply one of the best multiple-site apps available.
