Karl Lagerfeld’s Tech-Friendly iPhone Gloves

That whole “heart on your sleeve” stuff is so retro. From now on, a new digital-age-appropriate adage: “She wears her iPhone on her hand.” Perhaps this is what Karl Lagerfeld was angling for when these iPhone glove holders showed up in his Fall ’09 runway show. The fingerless, leather gloves feature a ruched strap that allows the wearer to secure a phone to the outside of her hand. It would seem that Apple could be the source of inspiration for a whole new direction in fashion as designers look to incorporate its chic accessories into styling and garments. OK, fine. It’s not like the iTie is about to be the next couture hit, but we’d actually gladly take a chance on Karl’s glove. [Trendhunter.com] Keep reading »

15 iPhone Apps We Could Really Use

What is it with creepy iPhone apps? I thought the vibrator iPhone app was pretty bad, but this, this really takes the cake. Using the microphone, accelerometer, and several other iPhone features, the new application Passion, which is now available in the iPhone App Store, apparently rates people on how they perform in the sack. “All you have to do is start the application, put your iPhone on the bed, in an arm band, or even in your pocket and have intercourse, it is as easy as that. Once you are finished, press the stop button and view your results.” Um, I think I’ll pass, thanks. When are people going to start developing iPhone apps we really want to use? After the jump, 15 iPhone apps I wish someone would create. Keep reading »

Net-A-Porter Launches iPhone App, Your Bank Account Sighs

The economy might still be in the crapper, but that hasn’t stopped luxury retailers from trying to lure shoppers through less traditional means. Recently, Christie’s launched an app to let users browse million-dollar works of art for sale. And now the latest to join the mobile shopping world is Net-a-porter.com, the site full of drool-worthy designer items, some of which cost more than our yearly salaries. Called Net-App, it allows iPhone users to view new additions and make purchases. While that aspect of the application is pretty straightforward, there’s also a neat tool included called ClosetFlow, which allows you to zoom in on images, and flip your phone to see the item from different angles. But is this a good or a bad thing?

Grindr: The Booty Call iPhone App

My hot friend/man slut, Eric, who gets more booty than a pirate, has made me swear to keep his big gay secret for months. But over the weekend, I got him to tell me everything he knows about the techie version of cruisin’. Or as he put it, “Fine, you can tell the breeders about Grindr.” Yay! Grindr is an iPhone application for those looking for one-night stands. It will show you photos of potential hookups and map out the exact location of men in your neighborhood just looking to get in your pants. Well, not our pants, perse, since it’s “The go-to place for gay, bi, and curious men to meet.” Sigh. On the upside: “Location-based Grindr is FREE, FAST, and FUN.” Sounds promising, no? If Grindr were to cross over to straight users, would you use it? [Grindr]

The Art Lovers’ iPhone App

iPhone users with way bigger bank accounts than me, listen up: Christie’s (the fancy-pants NYC auction house) has a new iPhone app. Apparently, it “allows you to browse over 450 auctions in over 80 categories including all areas of fine and decorative arts, jewelry, photographs, collectibles, wine, and more.” Great news for auction-nuts, but one clarification—you can’t actually place a bid on anything from your phone. (Wouldn’t that be dangerous!? It would take drunk eBaying to a whole new level when a package arrives containing your new Paul Klee original, the painting you have zero recollection buying, even if your Chase account remembers!) But see something you like? Place a call and they’ll raise the paddle for you. [Christie's via Men.style.com] Keep reading »

Is The iPhone The New Vehicle Of The Porn Industry?

What is Apple’s stance on pornographic iPhone applications? The company has been fighting off some bad press lately after having to ban two super sexy applications that slipped through the cracks (no pun intended). The problems came from “hot or not” type apps, which allow users to upload suggestive pictures of women (or young girls, sigh). While one company’s rule states no nude photos are allowed, bikini and lingerie shots are okay. The user-generated content is monitored, but not reviewed in detail. Keep reading »

Your iPurity Ring Will Keep You From Being An iSlut

Having a little trouble staying a virgin until your wedding night? Do you also have an iPhone? Then download the Purity Ring iPhone app where you can take a pledge to be chaste until marriage and look at a digital picture of a purity ring, instead of wearing one. [Cause that would be, like, totally embarrassing. -- Editor]

According to the Guardian, the iPhone app has pre-recorded pledges for both boys and girls and will only display the ring after the pledge is made. Available at the iTunes store, kiddies. But so you know, further investigation is needed to ascertain whether you can actually count on a digital purity ring when temptation strikes… [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Will You And Your Boyfriend Have Cute Kids? Find Out On Your Phone

Want to know what you and your boyfriend’s kid would look? There’s an iPhone app for that. iMated melds together two photos, showing you how the fruits of your bedroom labor will turn out. Consider this yet another dating litmus test. If the results aren’t pretty, you might want to rethink the relationship — or adopt. [iMated] Keep reading »

iPhone Apps You Shouldn’t Be Without

I have to admit, before last night, I had never downloaded an app. I protested profusely against them for as long as I could, but now I find myself wanting to download more and more. (I went through the same routine with the iPhone, insisting that nothing could be more confusing and unnecessary than having a phone, iPod, and internet combined into one, but when I was given the device as a gift, I soon came to love, er, be obsessed with it.)

MyVibe: First Vibrator App Approved By Apple

There’s a new iPhone vibrator application on the market, but unlike its predecessors, this one is approved by Apple — and it’s FREE. MyVibe — probably the only x-rated app approved by Apple — was created in response to users’ desire for “’discreet’ vibrators, especially things that look like something else so that they can use it via travel, not worry about their kids finding them, etc.” Yeah, but this vibrator doesn’t just look like something else, it is something else — something one regularly puts next to her face. Isn’t that sort of a conflict of interests? Anyway, sexual heath expert Dr. Debby Herbenick gave it a test drive — check out her comments after the jump. Keep reading »
