Fashion Industry Apps

What are the best fashion apps?  What are fashion apps?  Well, hopefully the below fashion term will help answer those questions...

Regardless of whether or not you personally have an iPhone or not, you most likely have heard the term "apps".  The word apps is basically an abbreviation for applications.  No, I do not mean applications as in an application used for applying for a job.  That is an entirely different type of application.  In regard to this post, the term "apps" is regarding the technology driven meaning of an application. 

Technology Apps have become popular due to the recent popularity of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.  The App Store from Apple is an ultimate source for mobile apps.  They have an enormous quantity of apps practically every category imaginable.  Some they charge for, but many are even free.  An iPhone app is a specific software widget that you can download from the iTunes App Store. When the new app is downloaded, it will place an icon on the screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch, so you can access the app directly by touching the icon on the screen.  Each app is different, but the primary purpose is to provide helpful information or entertainment.

Categories of apps include Business, Games, Entertainment, Sports, Education, Medical, Fitness, News, Travel, Photography and more.  Although their are many types of apps, we all know the MOST IMPORTANT app category.  Obviously, it is the "fashion apps".

Fashion Apps are apps relevant to fashion relevant topics.  Even fashion games...

By the way, when you are done learning about these fashion apps, you may want to also learn about fashion widgets and fashion gadgets.

Here are a few fashion apps that we thought you may have interest in reviewing:

Bra-Fitter : You may know your bra size.  Or you may actually be mistaken. If you do not care to take the risk regarding your size, you may want to test out the bra-fitter.  I am not saying this works perfectly, but you can decide.  Learn more about intimate apparel.

Brides Dressing Room: Brought to you by BRIDES Magazine, Brides Dressing Room is one the first-ever digital shopping concierge apps for bridges on the go. Personally, I think you should take your time in an actual bridal boutique.  However, using the bridal fashion app can also be beneficial.  By the way, you can learn more about bridal fashion from the bridal fashion guide on Apparel Search and also by reading Brides Magazine.
