Magnetique wants to put shopping at your fingertips

In Apps, Geek Meets Chic, Tech by Nicole2 Comments

Do you love fashion magazines like I do? Do you take pictures of items you want to buy in those fashion magazines like I do? If so, then you must download Magnetique to your smart phone!


Magnetique is a new app that you can use when you find a product you love in People StyleWatch, InStyle and Glamour. Simply click on the capture icon, select the magazine you are looking at, center the page in your view and click the shutter button. Once the app finds your page it will bring up all of the items featured. Then touch the item you like and the app will save it to your personal folder.

You can have the app find where you can purchase the item within a 20 mile radius, or have it take you directly to the store’s website. Voilà … shopping done! Not ready to buy? Your folder saves all of the products so that you can go back to them later.

Want to share your awesome find? You can email it, post it to Facebook, tweet it or pin it!

The downside is that the app does not find EVERYTHING in these magazines, but it is improving and more magazines are expected to be added by the end of the year!

Magnetique is available on iTunes and Google Play. You can find more about this app by going to or follow on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
