Features & Use
With “MyCloset”, you can document your entire wardrobe (even your ancient sweats hidden away in the far regions of your closet); you can photograph all your clothes, organize them, and combine them in any way you please.
Under “Item Registration” you can categorize a picture you’ve taken of an item of clothing or accessory according to what type of garment it is (e.g. pants or a top), what color it is, and in how many ways you can wear it (e.g. if it can be worn in both summer and winter).
Once you’ve finished registering everything your closet has to offer you can view, delete and re-arrange everything under “Item Management”.
But that’s not really what “MyCloset” is all about. These are just the preliminary steps you need to take in order to deal with your fashion-related morning indecisiveness. Once that’s done, you can start coordinating outfits for every day under “Log & Coordinate”. That way, all you have to do is switch your “MyCloset” app on a daily basis, enter the date, and see a photo documentation of the day’s combination of clothes.
Screen & Controls
“MyCloset” is very nicely designed. It’s quite simple but very detailed. Controls are easy to use and it’s also easy to figure out how to use them.
Whenever you have a few minutes to kill (on the subway, during your lunch break) all you need to do is browse through your virtual closet, select a date and start combining items listed under “Tops, Bottoms, Outer, Shoes, Accessories and Others” using the “Coordinate” button. After pressing “OK” you’ll have saved your outfit for the date you selected.
One of the big advantages when using “MyCloset” is that you revisit items you had completely forgotten about, the ones lurking in the nether regions of your wardrobe. So long as you’ve taken a picture of them and included them in your inventory, you may start wearing them again much more frequently.
Speed & Stability
I was satisfied with the app’s speed, but it really bothered me that error reports kept popping up, so I wasn’t particularly impressed with the app’s stability. I had to shut it down on several occasions.
This app can be downloaded for free from the Android Market.
