The app directory offers free and premium (paid) apps. Some apps have pluginsapp_plugin_icon_23x23.pngor streamsapp_stream_icon_23x23.png, and some have both. A plugin or stream can slightly alter the installation process.

Note: HootSuite Free users will be required to enter a method of payment and billing address to install premium apps.
