“Apps,” or application software, are designed to aid users in specific tasks. The majority of the time, when referencing apps, we are referring to the programs made specifically for our mobile phones. As our phones become sophisticated, naturally so do the applications. If you want to stay on top of fashion trends, synthesize coverage and news feeds, or maintain your virtual closet, we’ve got the app for you! The following list rounds up our 10 most lauded apps. They’re simply too cool to pass up!
1. ThisNext.com, an independent social shopping platform, partnered with luxury retailer Neiman Marcus to launch ShoeDish, an innovative Facebook application that allows users to catalog their favorite shoes and share interests and purchases with others. ShoeDish is the first product-based application dedicated solely to shoes.
2. Emergency Medical Center Locator (EMCL) is an application designed to save your life, literally. The EMCL app directs you to the closest medical center in time of dire emergency, while also targeting the best-qualified care for your specific emergency. The app offers recommendations for six specialty areas: trauma, stroke, eye pediatric, cardiac, and burn. This internationally accessible application may not be fashion oriented, but it is crucial when time is of the essence.
3. Style.com: The Style.com FREE iPhone app provides it all: in depth coverage of runway shows, fashion feedback, designer collections, and hot international party scenes. The iPad app includes all of this and more. Get your fashion on the go.
4. Chicfeed: If you’re anything like us at FPD, you’re constantly browsing a number of sites for fashion related info, images and inspiration. So why not bring together all of your favorite feeds in one place? Chicfeed is absolutely genius for fashion eye candy as it compiles images from our favorite blogs and puts them all on one site.
