    For me the best repost application on android is:
    1- All features are free.
    2- No annoying advertising or recurrent requests to buy to the pro version.
    3- No in-app purchase.
    4- No Watermarks.
    5- You can repost and download the videos and photos as they are posted without treatment (to add the Watermark) is sometimes long and degrades the quality of sound or image.
