Being on trend is very important business for the fashion conscious. This is where Luster has iOS users covered. It’s an app that makes browsing through the newest, most lusted after and nearest fashion finds wherever the user is.

Using an interactive map, users can see precisely what’s trending in their area and even browse through local boutiques to see what they offer. Users can search according to brand, piece or even occasion, resulting in the ability to save a compilation of things that interest.

Somewhat like a social networking tool, the user can even follow other fashion fans whose interests and loves most closely match theirs. They can even take photos of the different outfits and share likes and comments about them.

It’s an ideal companion app for those keen to know what’s popular near them at any given time.

As part of Luster‘s launch, there’s also a competition. To enter, users must take a photo of a fashion find they love and tag it with the relevant store and #fw hashtag. The person whose photo has the most Lusts from other users on the app by February 27th, will win the item in their winning picture up to a value of $1000! Not too shabby at all.

2nd and 3rd place photos win items up to a value of $500. Full details are available on the Luster website.

Luster is out now and it’s free to download.

Apps aimed at helping save shoppers money seem to be all the rage at the moment. So Pacific Sunwear (or PacSun as many consumers may recognise it as) has chipped in with their own effort.

PacSun offers quite a few features for its customers. There’s push notification which informs consumers when they’re near a PacSun location via the GPS integration. They are then sent targeted messages about any discounts or deals going on at the time. Users can also scan QR codes that are on window displays, in-store advertisements or in magazines. These QR codes then allow the user to listen to music from popular New Zealand rock band, The Naked and Famous, as well as take a look at behind the scenes videos and even acquire coupon codes.

Finally, users can search and buy PacSun products right from their iPhone. They can also create and save outfits made up of PacSun products to see how different combinations would work as well as share them with friends.

PacSun, powered by Usablenet, is available now as a free download and is compatible with all iOS devices.

Load Up Your Closet With Apps

It is currently unknown if the closet has a 148 shirt limit. The good news is, 148Apps T-Shirts are now available through!

Our friends over at AppTees (founded by the people behind Veiled Games, shhh!) have created a site that hopes to give a developers a way to show off some of their creations. AppTees allows app developers to create t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, etc. with their app graphics on them and sell them through a simple, automated system powered by SpreadShirt.

When AppTees invited us to get involved, we knew we had to get in on it. We created a couple simple designs to start. And will be looking to add some more in the future. Maybe we’ll even run a contest around it. Who knows?

One big question remains. Just when technology finally be able to fulfill the demand for 148Apps thongs? Soon, we hope.
