Essential Apps For Your Device: Texture

Sure, I love the feeling of flipping through a dozen magazines, perusing the latest and greatest in fashion, home decor and recipes. Magazine are great. They keep you occupied on long trips and commutes, give a fresh burst of inspiration with the flip of a page. All of this is true. but toting around several pounds of glossy paper doesn't hit high on my jump for joy list. Because, let's be real, we're not just picking out one and stuffing it our purse, we have a whole assortment. Admit it, it's tedious. 

Which is probably why Texture came to life. It's hundreds of magazines, articles and stories all in one little app. It's pretty amazing if you ask me. Forget your Vogue at home but wanted to read on it on the train before work? No problem, just open it on Texture and flip through with the slide of your finger. Instant gratification. It's been my go-to for home decor inspiration, new recipes to try, and figuring out what to add to my closet for the upcoming Fall season (Thanks Women's Wear Daily!). We're already buying boots, right?

Not feeling up to 'flipping' through the whole magazine, you can search for top stories from your favorites list, each article is marked to let you know the estimated time it might take to read. Enamored by Hydrangeas? Better Homes and Garden has a 5 minute story that will send you straight to your local nursery to pick up a bunch. Want 'the dirt' on Mila Kunis's personal life? This month's Glamour has it. InStyle even has the top summer trends from A-Z, and it'll only cost you 2 minutes of your time, your closet will thank you later.

Take it anywhere. Read it at home with coffee first thing in the morning or leisurely as you pass the time on a long road trip. You can even share with your significant other and give him or her some reading time while you pick out your 100th outfit for date night. You can use up to 5 devices per account.
