trimmin – window shop with friends, from Stone Soup Kitchen, Inc., makes shopping for gifts a breeze. Designed to help users discover an incredible range of retail brands, trimmin takes a lot of the guesswork out of gift giving.
Just like its name suggests, trimmin is an app created to help consumers buy gifts for friends and family members alike.
Creating an account is accomplished in mere seconds, and these accounts can be easily linked to other social media accounts (like Facebook). Finding friends already using the app is also simple to do, and friends can be “followed” if desired.
This way, users of trimmin stay up to date on their friends’ favorite brands–knowledge that should be useful whenever the time comes to purchase gifts for those friends. trimmin can also be used to discover new brands yourself and to create gift lists and wish lists as well.
Daily featured brands are quick to scroll through, and a full list of brand search categories should keep users occupied with discovering exciting new brands as well.
It’s also worthwhile to note that the daily featured brands in this app are being recognized for their commitment to improving the world through selling ethically sourced products.
Finally, the layout of trimmin allows you as the user to keep updated on social media posts from those brands, as the app provides an editorial-style layout access to things like the brand’s Pinterest account.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout and overall design of trimmin is excellent. I was extremely impressed with the choice of fonts and complete layout of the app; the screen was never too cluttered or too empty, and a good blend of beautiful photographs and text balanced each other well.
Even though a good number of brightly colored pictures and other stimuli are on the screen at one time, good use of space in trimmin ensures that screens still look clean and straightforward at all times.
Scrolling through the various featured brands was definitely addicting in a Pinterest-like way, thanks largely to the ease of navigation through this app.
trimmin is currently available for free through the iTunes Store. Connecting with friends and family through it is also completely free, and the added gift-buying ease provided through using this app is arguably rather priceless.
As mentioned previously, it’s obvious that great thought and care was put into creating the design and layout of trimmin–a fact that should be appreciated by any consumer.
Overall, trimmin is an excellently designed app that definitely lives up to its claims.
