Alongside the expected feed of luxury fashion items, there are a whole range of social features to allow you to comment and advise friends of their choices. Each brand also has its own little hub, to make it easier to find your way around.
The company hopes that by offering two-way interaction between individuals’ and brands’ profiles it’ll be a more compelling repeat shopping experience.
In a nutshell, it makes it easy to create and send your own custom memes in messages across a whole range of services, as well as via its own network.
It’s not perfect (I can’t verify that the One Direction member above does indeed hate carrots), but the automated system certainly does make it quick and easy to whip up a customized meme. Fear not, Android users, it’s available for you too.
If you don’t have enough emoji in your life already and you’re the sort of person who’s happy to converse in images rather than words, then Secretmoji for iPhone is probably worth checking out.
Essentially, it simply conceals your messages as a string of emoji until you tap the padlock icon at the top. The recipient also needs the app to decipher the received string of random emoji – they don’t actually represent the written message.
The app is free, but you’ll either have to put up with ads or pay $0.99 to unlock an ad-free version.
Just like on Android, it’s an algorithmically-driven guided-shooting app that aims to give novice photographers pointers to help capture a better picture.
The algorithms direct you to aim the camera up, down, left, right, move back or zoom in until you get just the right spot.
It also identifies and analyzes objects, faces, shapes, lines and scenes to give you better feedback on how to improve your shot. It’ll even warn you about items in the periphery of your shot, in case you want to re-frame.
Sometimes, just sometimes, it’s useful to have a disposable email address or phone number – and for those times, there’s Shuffle.
Similar to Burner, but with the additional support for email aliases, Shuffle lets you do exactly that on a pay-per-use basis.
For $1.99 per month you get a disposable phone number, on which incoming calls cost 1.5 cents per minute and outgoing calls cost 5 cents per minute. An SMS costs 1.5 cents and email addresses will set you back 0.75 cents for every email it forwards. Shuffle-to-Shuffle calls and texts have lower rates.
It’s currently only available in North America and Canada on iOS devices, though there is an Android version on the way.
Bundle is a new iOS and Android app that allows you to organize all of your photos into ‘bundles’ for private sharing with a group of people.
The idea is that other members of your group for the event or outing can also add their own photos to the bundle.
Once the images are all bundled together from an event, the app then suggests the best photos to keep by suggesting removing duplicate images and focusing on face and smile detection.
The basic version is free with unlimited storage of low-res files. A soon-to-launch $1 per month plan allows you to export bundles to your existing cloud storage service of choice, like Drive or Drobox, while a $5 per month option lets you make full resolution backups to Bundle’s own storage.
With too many updates to detail here, you’ll want to check out the new Camera Roll, filters and freshly-added Instragram support.
There’s also new tools to help you edit things like white balance and exposure (among other things) directly from your mobile. These edits are non-destructive, meaning you can restore the original photo at any time.
While it doesn’t take the ‘simplicity’ approach of something like Inbox by Google, it does throw in a lot of features for power users, as well as support the Apple Watch.
There’s also support for natural language search (“emails with attachments received this week,” for example) and a nifty quick reply feature to help you blaze your way through a big stack of email that needs attending to.
It also offers a snooze option, but this was a little unreliable in our testing. Still, it’s early days, it only launched today.
