Apps for the style-conscious: say hello to the Stylepad

Armani Exchange gets into the iPad game with an exciting new site.

A|X Stylepad

Not an actual app but inspired by the iPad, this online portfolio of the Armani Exchange swimwear campaign makes the most of the gadget: flip through pictures, watch videos with the models (including Armani model and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend Irina Shayk), explore the shoot locations Turks and Caicos, and of course, shop the collection. There's even a category for pictures you can only access if you're 18 or older, so brave yourself for imagery even hotter than the new Ronaldo underwear campaign.
