Fashion Apps: Education & Workforce MOBILE APPs RESOURCE BANK


I love it when others do work for us!

The following article announces a new, free, online educational app-finder database:

And here’s the URL for the Education & Workforce MOBILE APPs RESOURCE BANK resource bank:
(Scroll down a bit. The app-finder tool is on the right-side of the screen inside the content box with the dark red banner with the heading “Education & Workforce MOBILE APPs RESOURCE BANK.”

I tested it by searching multiple categories simultaneously (“Professional development – Fashion Design – College Level”) and was fascinated with the results (see following two links.) Most, though not all, of the apps in the search results are free downloads. I use SnagIt and definitely find it useful. I wonder if anyone else has used any of these?

Style Studio:

SnagIt, Pixie, Adobe Kuler and Aviary:

I’ll be adding the best apps to our Fashion Librarians Resource Guide.

  1. Thanks Sandra. I am definitely going to some of these add to my Delicious stacks and suggest them for our institutional LibGuides. Pixie is really neat!

    Two things should be noted, however. The first is that not everything listed is a mobile app, like SnagIt or Pixie for instance. Second, it is interesting what has been left out. Students here at FIT are mad about Moodboard, an iPad app, that is a snap to use and lets them be as creative as they wish to be. Also missing from the list is the MyPantone app. With Pantone being the standard used by so many forecasting services, etc, this app is a must. Perhaps I’ll contact the site.

    The MOBILE APPs RESOURCE BANK is a great thing to know about. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Helen,

      Thank you very much for your app suggestions! This is just the kind of information we need. If you have others, please share! I’ll enter these on our Fashion Librarians Resource Guide.

      For those of you who are curious about Helen’s recommendations…
