A Pinterest-alike app - Fancy that?
by on April 30, 2012
There’s been a proliferation of services hit Google Play which do away with words and instead go for something that’s a lot more picture lead.
Given that Pinterest is taking the online world by storm at the moment, you would have thought that its makers would have sorted out an Android app. It’s lucky then that in its place is a similar service called Fancy.
Fancy is a pretty good word to describe this app as this is exactly what it is – it looks fancy and the images and contents you can look through all seem very fancy.
The idea is that you set up an account, get your friends on board and then pin, sorry, upload stuff to the site that you lust after. This can be anything from clothing to cars to buildings and then the images of what you like are shown off within the app’s minimalist design.
In the sense that this is a site that puts pictures in favour of words, Fancy is definitely similar to Pinterest, but there’s a bit more of an e-commerce aspect to Fancy – in that some of the things pinned can be bought through the site.
Without friends you get what’s most popular at the moment – in short, you need friends for Fancy to work properly but it’s a decent enough app to peruse over things people seem to like in life.
