HootSuite Adds Social Network Sync

The social media management tool +HootSuite has released an update for their iOS app today that makes it so that now, when you log into the app, your social networks are synced automatically with the web dashboard. Previously, you had to set up the networks on the app manually.

This, along with some other updates, suggests some interesting changes which may be in store for the service!

Are you using HootSuite already? If so, what do you think?
