There are moments in our lives that have certain significance for us and we usually capture these moments using our smartphone’s built-in camera. We can then share these precious moments via social media with our friends and family anywhere and anytime, but sometimes you might have a desire to do something a little bit more than just share photos and videos. Custom T-shirts are nothing new, but the process of creating them and ordering them hasn’t always been as easy as it should or could be.The best gifts apps for the iPhone
If you want to create your own custom T-shirts and include your special photos, you can now do that using an app that’s available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Yoshirt is a fun and easy way to create fantastic memories that you can wear and share with your friends and family. The app is free, but you will have to pay for the shirts when you order them.
Creating your own custom shirts with this app couldn’t be simpler – just open the app, tap on the T-shirt icon with a plus symbol in the middle of it, choose the type of item you want to create, and add your own custom items to it. There are all kinds of custom options that you can add by choosing from the menu at the bottom of the app and any changes you make will be displayed in a preview of your T-shirt in the main window of the app.The best iPhone apps for the shopaholic
A key feature of this app, that really makes it appealing, is that you can easily add your own photos to your T-shirts. Once you’ve selected the shirt or other item that you’re looking to customize, you simply tap on the camera icon, select choose photo or take a new photo, and your changes will be superimposed on the sample T-shirt. You can also add text and other photo filters to your creation as well.
While this app may focus on T-shirts as its main product, there are other options to choose from. Women can actually create custom T-shirts, yoga pants, yoga shorts, and even tote bags. For men, there are various types of shirts to choose from including T-shirts, tank tops, and long sleeve shirts. Not to leave the kids out, there is also a youth shirt that you can purchase as well.The best shopping apps for iPhone
If creating a shirt with a nice picture on the front isn’t enough for you, you also have the option to add your custom photos and designs to the back of the shirt as well. It doesn’t really cost you any extra.
While it’s great that you can add your own photos to a custom-made T-shirt that’s not the only thing you can do with this app. The app also includes some custom stickers and backgrounds that you can use to enhance your designs as well. The only problem I had with this was that they are very limited in their nature. There simply isn’t a lot of variety as of yet. I'm hoping to see more in the near future.
Getting around this app is simple using the easy access menu at the bottom of the app that gives you quick access to the store, design features, your shopping cart, and even a help section. The help section is particularly useful as it allows you to not only contact the developers with any questions, but it also has a FAQ page for some quick answers to questions.
If you’re concerned about paying for your shirt creations online, you’ll probably be comforted to know that you can pay for your shirts using Apple Pay if you want to. This is Apple’s new secure payment feature and it can really add some peace of mind to your purchase.
If you’re creating the shirts for a group you can quickly share your idea with any member of that group by tapping on the share icon in the top right-hand corner – this will open up a window which allows you to share it via text messaging, mail, Twitter, or Facebook. Let’s face it, just because you think the shirt looks great it doesn’t mean that everyone will agree with you and it’s nice to have some feedback.
Probably, the biggest drawback of this app is that it’s only available to a limited market right now. If you live outside of the United States or Canada you’re out of luck. Hopefully, the app will be made available to other countries in the future as it’s a lot of fun and I think everyone, everywhere would enjoy this app.
While I would like to see some more options in the sticker and background sections on Yoshirt, this still is a great app for its purpose. I like the fact that you can preview and share your creations over social media before you order anything and it’s nice that there are a few different items for creating custom apparel other than just T-shirts. If you want to create great mementos for sharing the moments in your life with friends and family, or maybe start your own clothing line, this is the app for you!
