Linkqlo – Social Network of Fashion for Him and Her
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Fads seemingly come and go, but fashion is something that’s always hot.
Asking your friends out on shopping dates can be fun but sometimes you need fashion advice from an unbiased source.
Linkqlo, just like fashion itself, is fabulous. It’s a free iPhone app that’s focused on fashion discovery for all sizes.
It allows you to connect with other users around the world who share similar styles and body types so your chances of finding the right clothes for you are much, much better.
Concept and Functionality:
When you first open Linkqlo, by Linkqlo Inc, you’re presented with a brief overview of what the app is for, which is great for new users who are interested in knowing what the app offers.
You’ll have to set an account up in order to use Linkqlo, but doing so is easy and you can make an account using your email, Twitter, or Facebook.
In order to properly match users with others who have similar body types, Linkqlo does ask for information such as weight, height, and gender. This information isn’t shared with other users, though, so you should be alright with entering it into the app.
I like the way Linkqlo works in terms of navigation, as there’s a handy home screen filled with posts from other users.
One thing I noticed is that I couldn’t find a way to filter the home feed so I was shown posts that I wasn’t particularly interested in, such as men’s clothing.
Linkqlo is a social network at heart and I really like the fact that the developers emphasize interaction among users.
You can easily upload or snap photos of an article of clothing you’re wearing and leave comments about it. I found the uploading and posting process to be incredibly simple and easy to do.
Another neat feature is the ability to search Linkqlo for different brands that you’re keen on and chances are you’ll find clothing that’s likely to fit.
Keep in mind that Linkqlo is still a fairly young app and the user base isn’t massive just yet, so don’t be disappointed if results are a little scarce.
Linkqlo can be downloaded from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There aren’t any in-app purchases to deal with. When it comes to value, you certainly can’t beat the price of free.
Overall, I think Linkqlo is off to a great start and has tons of potential. That being said the app needs a bit more work to separate it from the rest of the fashion apps available.
I do like the fact that the fitting report system helps users, and I truly encourage users who try the app to review clothing and contribute to the community so it can grow.
Linkqlo requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
