Imagine having only one landline every time you need to make a phone call. It’s a hot thought, but it’s the equivalent of a marketer not having the right apps and tools on their mobile device.
The right combination of apps will make your life much easier and won’t force you to stay tied to your desk. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite mobile tools for socializing on the go. If you’re looking for a list of the best social media apps, we’ve got you covered on that too.

Once your images are ready, share them directly from Enhance to your social networks or schedule them to post later via Moyens I/O.
best for: Basic photo retouching
TouchRetouch is a retouching tool that allows you to remove unwanted content from your photos. It’s fast and easy to use (you don’t have to be a pro!), allowing you to remove everything from power lines to taillights with just a few taps.

5. Adobe Premier Clip
best for: Editing social videos

With Adobe Premiere Clip, you can sync your videos across all your devices and upload content directly to social media. The app has more simplified features than the desktop version, but you have the option to send it to Premiere Pro on your desktop to make changes or put the finishing touches before publishing.
best for: Editing live action or GoPro videos
If you shoot a lot of live action videos for your brand, Quik for mobile is a great video editing tool. Created by GoPro, it allows you to quickly and easily edit your GoPro videos (or other photos and videos) from a phone or other device.

All videos in Clips are synced to iCloud so you can edit your videos across all your devices.
best for: Team communication
The messaging app Slack is very useful for cross-team collaboration. If you’re working on a social campaign and need to share documents, get feedback, or make a group decision quickly, you should use Slack.
Slack has many useful features that allow you to create workgroups, tag campaigns, and search for old projects or campaigns in your conversation archives.
best for: Team collaboration and productivity
When working on a social campaign with multiple team members, it’s important to assign roles and responsibilities to make sure projects get done. Make to-do lists for yourself or your team to make sure you never miss a deadline.
With the monday.com app, you can create tasks, add deadlines, assign roles, and track the time you spend on each task.
Note: Moyens I/O users can assign monday.com tasks directly from social posts from their Moyens I/O boards via the App Library.
best for: Personal to-do and project management
Trello is a handy app to help you cross out to-do items while monitoring your team’s tasks and workflow.
If you’re someone who prefers to showcase your work visually, Trello’s boards are a good option. You can create boards for different projects and teams, and organize sub-tasks in the most beneficial way for you.
Trello also has an advanced editorial calendar creation option, which is extremely useful for social marketing teams.
best for: Listening to articles
Narro is a text-to-speech podcast app that will take your flagged articles and read them back to you. You can subscribe to your Narro readings like a podcast so you can listen to your articles from any podcast player.
If you’ve got a long way to go, have a crazy day at the office, or need something to listen to at the gym, this is a great option to catch up on your favorite readings.
Narro can detect more than 10 different languages and lets you choose from a variety of sounds.

13. Google Drive
best for: File storage and collaboration
The Google Drive app is a safe place for your files and allows you to easily access them from a mobile device. If you need to catch up on some work or review shared documents on the go, Google Drive syncs all changes across your devices.
