Fashion Apps by Apparel Search - Fashion Terms of Interest to the Fashion Industry
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..
