How does the web app look and feel to use?

Even though the site is still in alpha it has a really nice look and feel to it. It makes finding fashion tips really easy and very rewarding. It’s like a magazine and has lots of nice touches to it. You can search for a brand or shop to get a list of pictures. Although their collection is still growing there are already some interesting photos that have been collected from New York, Paris and London.

How does the registration process work?

You don’t actually need to register to look at the content; you only really need to register if you want to upload content to the site. If you want to do this then the registration process is very simple. You need to choose a username, email address, and enter your birthday. You will then automatically be signed into your account and you can update your profile information including profile photo.

What does it cost to use the application?

The website is completely free to use, presumably in the future they will start making money by linking to the retailer’s website and earning a commission. At the moment though there doesn’t seem to be any way of generating revenue from the site.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Vetrina’s is nowhere near finished yet as it’s not even in beta testing. It’s currently in alpha but even so the site seems to work quite well and has quite a few nice features. Vetrina is aimed mainly at women who like clothes although it is also popular with some men.
