Closet Organizing Apps

This is the first in a series of columns focused on the best mobile apps for organizers and their clients.

Basic purpose/function:  Designed to help users organize their clothing efficiently, there are dozens of apps that help users organize their clothing.  Users photograph individual wardrobe items and store according to category – “tops,” “accessories,”  “shoes,” etc.  The images are then combined to build outfits and create visual records of each outfit for future reference.   Most apps allow outfits to be associated with specific dates on the integrated calendar to streamline wardrobe planning.

  • Options for naming/describing clothing items for quicker search
