Concept and Functionality:

Shopping in stores can be a time-consuming hassle and when it comes to finding the next perfect shirt or accessory, there’s usually never enough time to see everything the store has to offer.

That’s where Stylematch comes in handy. This fantastic fashion tool provides users with the means to organize their closet, shop new styles, and even virtually try on clothes and accessories.

To begin using Stylematch, users can opt to create an account with the service via email, or by connecting the app with Facebook.

There’s also an option to browse the app as a guest, but users who do this won’t be able to take advantage of features like saving items to favorites.

Once you’re set up, you can choose what you want to do via the main menu. From snapping photos of clothes and items you already own for your virtual closet to browsing the latest items from plenty of stores.

Fashion-minded folks definitely won’t be bored with Stylematch.

In terms of navigation, I found Stylematch to be very well organized. When browsing items, categories are broken down very well so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.

For example, tapping on “Shop Women” takes you to a list of possible categories such as accessories, coats, jeans, etc. Tapping on a category such as accessories further filters items by type, such as belts, gloves, etc. This degree of organization is essential, especially for an app that aggregates tens of thousands of items from online stores.

Features:

Stylematch has plenty of features for users to enjoy, including the aforementioned virtual changing room. Here you can import an item from the app or snap a photo of something you found and superimpose it over an image of yourself.

While it’s not the same as physically trying on clothes and accessories, it’s a good way to get an idea as to what something will look like when worn.

In fact, the way the Virtual Change Room lets you see how you’ll look with something you have your eye on is pretty amazing. It actually uses augmented reality to show you just how that new handbag will look on you, and, as far as we know, it’s the only fashion app in the world that does this.

For example, let’s say you’re at home and you are trying on a dress for a forthcoming social event and you realize you need a new handbag to match your dress. In this case you can select a handbag from the SHOP section of the App and load it into the Virtual Change Room while you are wearing your dress.

Then you can have your partner hold up the camera in front of you (wearing the dress) and see how the handbag ‘matches’ your dress.

For those with a “need to know”, here’s how it works. An image (eg. Handbag) can be loaded from either… MY CLOSET, CAMERA ROLL, FAVOURITES or SHOP… once you select the image to load you are then taken to a new screen to remove the background – so the image can be properly viewed on YOU.

The image loads into the foreground of the camera and YOU are visible in the background of the camera, therefore both you and the image are visible together in an ‘augmented’ way. Pretty cool, no?

Also, Stylematch features the ability to purchase items you find in the app from its respective online store. Simply tap the “Buy Now” button for an item and Safari will launch with the official store listing. All transactions are handled outside of Stylematch, and the site receives a small commission from your purchase.

Value::

Stylematch is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. Overall, if you love fashion, this is definitely an app that you’ll use over and over again.

Manage Your Vehicle’s Records with AUTOsist

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

AUTOsist, from the company of the same name, is the perfect app for anyone wanting to easily store and manage their vehicle records.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, AUTOsist is easy to use and delivers just what it claims.

Features:

AUTOsist is an app that is designed to help store and manage data pertaining to your vehicle’s records.

The app works very well in keeping documents organized and easily accessible. In the “Garage” category, AUTOsist will organize records based on vehicle. For each vehicle that you have saved in your “garage,” AUTOsist will sort documents based on document types such as receipts, insurance cards, or even driver’s licenses.

Not only does AUTOsist help manage car maintenance, the app also helps keep a record history of all info in records to a vehicle, and the history of the vehicle can be readily exported to a PDF file for ease of viewing outside the application.

This feature may be particularly appealing to anyone looking to sell a vehicle, as in some cases, the value of a vehicle can be increased if there is hard evidence and documentation of maintenance records.

However, although AUTOsist is loaded with excellent and useful features, I would still like to see it become proactive by having the option to notify you when to do a scheduled or regular service, such as an oil change.

Appearance and Layout:

An excellent feature of AUTOsist that was nailed by the developers is its simple, but stylish layout.

The app is appealing to the eye, and looks very professional. There isn’t any unattractive or “cheesy” graphics to speak of. Additionally, I was also very pleased with the efficient layout of the app; all documents and records are uncluttered and organized very well.

The “filing” system of the app is easy to understand, and the search feature provides added ease in locating the right documents at the right time. As a whole, AUTOsists’ layout and graphics are stellar, just like the app’s overall concept.

Value:

AUTOsist has the potential to not only keep your vehicle running, but it could also add value to your car.

More value to your car means more money in your pocket when it’s time to sell your vehicle.

Currently, the app doesn’t have any advertisements and is free in the iTunes App store — two facts that by themselves makes the app valuable.

For anyone looking to keep accurate records on his/her vehicles, this app will be a great one to download.

Safer Showings: Improving the Safety of the Real Estate Industry

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Safer Showings, by Paul Silverman, helps improve that safety of both realtors and buyers when looking at real estate.

Safer Showings has many unique features and is ideal for any realtor who does real estate showings.

Features:

As stated in the application’s description, showing houses can be dangerous. Safer Showings was developed by a realtor to help deter situations that could be potentially harmful.

With realtors in mind, the app has streamlined many different features for all sorts of emergency situations that may occur.  One of the features Safer Showings includes is the ability to capture a picture and send it with a screenshot mapping your current location to any contact listed on your iOS device.

This feature works quickly and efficiently; however, I would prefer the location screenshot to have been “zoomed out” a little farther for ease of identifying location.

Another interesting option of Safer Showings is the ability to record a video with the “stealth recording” feature. Unlike the conventional iOS video camera that displays the “viewfinder” on screen while recording, Safer Showings will keep the main menu screen of the app static, except for a blinking red light, and record a video using the main camera lens.

Other useful features of Safer Showings include a flashlight that uses the LED light, siren that emits a loud sound from the speakers, and a designated button to quickly call 911.

Another feature that Safer Showings incorporated into the app was the option to take a picture of an individual’s ID. Before taking the picture, a legal disclaimer prompt shows up on the screen for the individual to read and agree to.

We especially appreciate that all of the incorporated features and details of Safer Showings will not only provide a sense of security for realtors, but also add another level of professionalism.

Appearance and Layout:

As a whole, the layout of Safer Showings is very easy to use, making it easy to navigate quickly and efficiently.

Even as a first time user with little knowledge of the real estate world, I found the app fairly self explanatory. One of the reasons Safer Showings is so easy to use is because all functions of the app are accessible with one touch of a button.

However, even though the layout of this app makes it very user-friendly, the overall aesthetic value of it comes across as a bit lacking. A blurred image of a house makes up the background of the app, and while this image is obviously in line with the overall purpose of the app, it does make the appearance more cluttered. We would prefer that each user could change the image or opt for no image at all.

Value:

At $2.99, Safer Showings is a little more expensive than the typical $0.99 app purchase, although since this is an app for professionals, the price should not be an issue.

The bottom line is that is a great example of an app targeted at a specific niche demographic with its particular needs in mind.

For those that fit into the app’s target audience of realtors, Safer Showings can be a very useful and rewarding application.

The app is loaded with many different features and works extremely well. If anything, Safer Showings does provide a sense of security that realtors desire. I recommend Safer Showings to anyone within real estate business.

BlueChatBox Rolls All Your Favorite Messaging Features Into One

BlueChatBox iPhone App Review by Adam Itkoff

BlueChatBox iPhone App Review by Adam Itkoff

We love to message. We also love to chat, banter, call, text, ping, prod, poke and fill in your choice of verbs to keep the list going.

Twitter alone reports that users “tweet” a cumulative 500 Million times per day. Now if that doesn’t prove we’re a communicative species by nature, nothing will. We will never hesitate to try the latest and greatest form of new communication on the market, and are always looking to communicate with both friends and loved ones alike.

That’s where BlueChatBox, from Tony Jiang, comes in.

BlueChatBox combines functions of iMessage and SMS with features from WhatsApp, Skype and beyond to become a force all of its own.

This app combines a full array of excellent features to ultimately become a messaging service unlike any other, making BlueChatBox a must have for your communication rotation.

Features:

This app is totally free and helps you chat with friends or strangers with total customization. You can find people nearby, chat with community managers, post status updates and even customize themes around chats and moods.

BlueChatBox hosts conversations via its own network, so in a vein similar to iMessage, it allows you to message to your hearts content without incurring SMS fees.

This extends all the way to an International marketplace, allowing International messages to process without incurring a single penny.

The app is free and can even save you money with this tremendous amalgam of features. This even includes a nifty translation feature, allowing the app to translate messages in dozens of different languages into your native vernacular.

Of course, you can send emoticons too.

Concept and Functionality:

To use the app, simply download, insert your number, confirm a verification code, and you’re all set. In under a minute flat you can have the app on your phone and even start putting it to use.

The app is also light and well constructed. Ultimately we think it could go slightly further with an aesthetic overhaul. The list of features is so strong, that masking them in a haphazard array of colors is just about the only downside to the entire experience. Still, functionality is strong enough to keep the app from losing any points.

Overall Value:

The app is off to a fantastic start and combines popular features to become an entirely unique and original app. All in all, BlueChatBox is a fantastic creation worthy of a tweet, text, ping and more.
