There are 5 billion mobile phones in the world today, from which more than 1 billion are smartphones, according to Google’s Our Mobile Planet. Despite the variation of figures from one country to another, in most developed countries the saturation rate of smartphones is around 50 percent, which means that half the population of most countries has a smartphone. The growing number of smartphone users can be credited to the development of mobile applications, more commonly referred to as apps. There is an app for almost everything from books, social media and of course, the multi-billion industry –fashion. Just like all of your important fashion accessories, fashion apps have also become important in finishing your overall look. Here are just some of the must-have fashion apps on the market today:
Stylebook is a virtual wardrobe organizing app designed to help you carefully curate your wardrobe to create a stylish look every day. No need to buy new outfits, this app will aid you in getting the most out of what you already have in your closet. You can even chronicle and track how many times you’ve worn a particular item.
If you have seen a random stranger wearing an outfit you love, you don’t have to chase them anymore to ask where she got it. All you need to do is take a picture and use Kaleidoscope. It helps you find the products that match each item on the photograph.
Pose is the most exciting way to monitor the fashion pieces that your favorite style icons and fashion bloggers are wearing. You can even shop for the looks that you adore directly from the app.
These fashion apps are also a great way to meet new people. Like mobile gaming apps, fashion apps also have online communities where you can meet people who are as passionate with fashion as much as you. According to Kim Shadbolt, Digital Marketing Manager for Pocket Fruity, mobile apps like Words With Friends allow you to play against other people, and even use social networking profiles to interact by signing up through Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts. The same goes with fashion app Pose which has become an “Instagram for fashion.” Aside from its shopping feature, the app has an online and mobile community where users go to swap photos and videos of their outfits, makeup and shopping finds, among others.
Dressing up nowadays is now made more exciting with these fashion apps.
