Fashion Industry Apps - What is the meaning of Fashion Industry Apps?

 Fashion Industry Apps

First of all, what is the Fashion Industry Apps website?

OK, we now know the purpose of this website and the reason why we have selected the name of our website.  Now your question may be, "what the heck are "apps"?  Well, if you are in fact asking that question, I must applaud you.  This is certainly a good question.  Unfortunately, because I am a garmento and not an expert in technology, I may only be able to give you a partially correct answer.  However, with that said, I will most certainly try to answer your question as accurately as possible.  In an effort to assist, I have done a little reading and have determined that their are a few different meanings of "App", "Applications", or "Apps".

Here are three brief explanations:

1)  Application software, also known as an application or an "app", is computer software designed to help the user to perform singular or multiple related specific tasks. Examples include enterprise software, accounting software, office suites, graphics software and media players. Many application programs deal principally with documents. Apps may be bundled with the computer and its system software, or may be published separately. Some users are satisfied with the bundled apps and need never install one.

2)   "APP is an abbreviation for application. The filename extension .app means application in Symbian OS, SkyOS, GNUstep and Mac OS X. On the latter two systems, a .app file is actually a folder containing binaries and supporting files."  This was an example from according to Wikipedia June 8, 2011 found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APP_(file_format).

3)  App is also used generically to refer to lightweight, web-based applications tailored to a device's (such as a mobile phone, TV set or tablet PC) form factor and input-output interfaces (key pad, touch pad, remote control etc).

The Fashion Industry Apps website is for the most part regarding the type of app described above in point # 3.  We are primarily refering to web based applications tailored to devices such as mobile phones, ipads, and other sorts of amazing mobile devices.  In addition the mobile apps, we may toss a few PC or Mac based apps into the mix just to keep you on your toes (and informed regarding cool fashion technology).  Most of the apps listed on our site will be for mobile applications.  However, we can not promise that they will all be based on mobile technology.
