Aischedul

One of the two plans offered by AiSchedul is always free but in this version, you can only access some of the features and you cannot enjoy the total ride of this application. Moreover, the other plan that gives complete access to features costs only 9$ per month which is economic in comparison to other apps.

RecurPost

Actually, RecurPost will offer you four different plans. One of the plans offered by this website is free, but it has so many limitations. For instance, you cannot upload videos, you can only add 3 social media accounts and you can not add the 3 of them from one social media website, i.e. you cannot manage 3 Instagram accounts using this plan. According to the website, the best plan costs 25$ per month and in this case, you can upload videos, manage 10 social accounts, and schedule up to 20 posts for each account.
