What can you use the app for?

ShortStack enables users create powerful custom applications that can be published directly on Facebook timeline pages. Hence, with the ShortStack application, users are able to add widgets, single galleries, multiple galleries, RSS feeds, Twitter feeds and much more. There are widgets which allow users add almost anything to their Facebook page. Whenever a widget is added, an editor pops up to allow the user add features related to the widget. For example, an image widget will allow users add images to the Facebook page. There are also tools which users can use in collaborating on the design or update of a Facebook page.
