Fashion Dolls: Written iPhone App Review
Fashion Dolls by nTraySys LLC is an iOS app that boasts of being the world’s first interactive fashion magazine with real clothes and models. Fashion Dolls allows users to dress the in-app models with a variety of clothing; users can then submit their fashion creations to the app’s stylist, who then rates how well they’ve dressed the models.
Fashion Dolls provides iOS users with a way to test their fashion sense and be rated on it. This app features real live models who users can dress up in a variety of outfits; these outfits are then rated by an in-app fashion stylist. However, while the official product description boasts of offering users a large variety of clothing items to choose from and numerous models, I realized while actually playing Fashion Dolls that the initial app purchase has limited options. Specifically, without purchasing any in-app add-ons, users can only dress up one model, and this model’s clothing options are certainly limited. Therefore, actually getting the promised hours of entertainment out of Fashion Dolls would probably require investing more than just the initial purchase fee. While the idea of this app might be fun, the reality is that a lack of options really limits its entertainment value.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout of Fashion Dolls is simple enough, and navigating through this app is easily done by just following the “back” and “next” arrows on the bottom of the screen. The use of live models and real clothing in this app means that the graphics are actually just pictures/videos of actual people/things, and no complaints can really be made about these details. However, the rest of the graphics of Fashion Dolls seemed to be rather lacking; if the developers had just chosen to use a different background color instead of plain white the app then would be more visually appealing. Overall, while Fashion Doll’s graphics and layout are adequate, it would have been nice if more attention had been paid to the graphic design of the app.
Fashion Dolls currently costs $0.99 through the iTunes store. This is a fairly average price for an app of its type, and for those who are really interested in getting feedback on their sense of fashion tastes, Fashion Dolls may very well be a fun app to pass the time with. However, this app certainly does have a fairly limited target audience, as the majority of iOS users probably aren’t very interested in getting rated on their fashion sense. Additionally, it should be noted that Fashion Dolls is rated “12+,” meaning that it may contain some content that is inappropriate for children. Finally, this initial purchase only covers one “fashion doll” and users must pay to purchase additional models.
Fashion Dolls iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
