Comb: A Shopper’s dream App

About a week or 2 ago I was a part of a #FBlogger chat about a new Fashion App called Comb. I was really intrigued to download it and find out a bit more. It’s really simple to use which is amazing because I do not count myself as a tech savvy person and always avoid downloading many apps as I normally hate working them out.

Once you have created an account on the app which you can do by linking it to your facebook, you can start straight away. The idea is that you can take a picture of whatever you fancy whether it’s a pattern, a piece of clothing or a picture and the app will literally “Comb” for similar items of clothing. You can then break it down to a category i.e. dress, tops, trousers and so on.

Once you have taken a picture it will comb through and bring up the matches like below. I took a picture of a texture on my jumper and it brought up similar items. The prices will range from affordable to designer high end stuff which when I win the lottery, I will be snapping up in a hurry.

Now here for the techy bit from the people behing the app:

“You might be wondering how this super cool app works, well the software behind the app was created at the Imperial College from a team of computer scientists with more PHDs than we have handbags! The company behind the software,Cortexica, also power the apps of some of the worlds biggest retailers, like Macy’s, Zalando, and Very.co.uk – their software has been called the Shazam of Fashion!”

I would throughly recommend this app to anyone who has those moments where they see something or like a pattern and want to know where there are similar items out there. It’s free to download so get moving people!

Thanks
