On Twitter more than you should be? Then you’re probably familiar with and either love or hate Follow Fridays. What’s that? On Fridays, Twitter users will usually share a bunch of users they think their current crop of follows should follow. You’ve probably seen us do it a few times with the @wpcentral account on a Friday here and there. It’s popular among those social butterflies and especially anyone who manages an account on Twitter for a brand. Hashtastic is an app for Windows Phone users that makes #FF super simple. Let’s check it out.
Hashtastic does all the heavy lifting when it comes to praising some of your Twitter friends. You can add a handful of Twitter accounts which makes it great when you’re doing a #FF as either @wpcentral or @samsabri in my case. The apps is dead simple to boot, so this is a must have for any Tweeps out there.
All you need to do with the app is add the hashtag you want (#FF, #FollowFriday, #CustomHashTagHere, etc) and select a group of your favorite Twitter friends. You’ll initially see a list of folks who recently tweeted to you. Or you can select people to mention from one of your Twitter lists.
It’s also got some extra features that really add a Windows Phone touch to an awesome app. For example, you’ve got a new Avatar Gallery that’s powered by the Tile Me! app. This allows you to attach a collage image to the tweet with your favorite friend’s Twitter avatars.
The app goes for $0.99 (trial included) and is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
