Don't love your work? There's an app for that
Wednesday 23 March 2011
New apps this week for the style-conscious include urban bliss by Dickies, the ultimate royal wedding guide, and subversive flash mob behavior.
Urban wear brand Dickies has released its Love your Work iPad app that showcases some of the best in street fashion, photography, music and sport, while also presenting its products. Special gimmicks include imagery by Paul Mittleman, interviews with UK street fashion legends Michael Kopelman and Andrew Bunney, a map pointing you to the best hip hop spots in New York, and a Fixed Gear London video.
Can't get enough news surrounding Will and Kate's marriage next month? New one-stop guide Royal Wedding 2011 has got you covered, bringing you the latest on Kate's dress, Will's "bling," and London's royal hot spots.
Finally, here is an app that not only looks sleek but also makes your life "more thrilling and unpredictable:" artist duo benrik's Situationist alerts members to one another's proximity and gets them to interact in suggested situations, ranging from "Compliment me on my haircut" to the more subversive "Help me rouse everyone around us into revolutionary fervour and storm the nearest TV station." Situations and pictures are moderated to avoid the Chatroulette effect.
