A shopping app that includes everything from abstract-print dresses to zebra rugs, ShopStyle is robust and well executed. It’s a lot to absorb on a phone, though.

ShopStyle, as the name suggests, is a shopping app primarily dealing in fashion. Unlike most of the other fashion apps we’ve taken a look at, however, this one also has room for men, kids and home furnishings.
The app has just about every conceivable fashion category to browse and search, pulling from some of the biggest stores (Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Sephora, etc.) and thousands of brands. A nice feature in the search function is the ability to refine not only by size and color, but also by sale or discount. Find the cheapest clothes available, or, if something is still too rich for your blood, mark it as a favorite and the app will notify you when it hits the e-sale rack.
The photos are hi-res and support multitouch zooming, which is fine, but that still doesn’t manage to shake our fears of buying, say, a chair we’ve never seen or sat in through a phone. If that isn’t a concern of yours, go ahead and grab ShopStyle.
