Buffer is a product that allows you to share across a variety of platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The highlight for this app is that you can schedule (“buffer”) when a post appears on whatever social media outlet you’ve chosen to share. Buffering can be set by you through the app or you can allow Buffer to choose the time. Additionally, posts can be sent right away as well.
- Download the app. Note: for the iOS, the app is built for the iPhone but will work on the iPad.
- Swipe to the left (3 times); Tap the Get Started button.
- If you have a Buffer account, you will be given the option to sign in with your Buffer account. Otherwise, choose a social media platform that you have an account.
- You are now up on Buffer!

Note: Settings is hidden on an Android phone so you will need to use the key on your phone that typically lets you see a menu that has Settings on it. This is where you can access Help.
