See clothing that you love, snap a picture of it, find it online.

Not even close...
Seeing a beautiful dress or shirt that you know would look great on you can be frustrating when you can't find it anywhere. I had such high hopes for this app.
The app is easy to use. Either take a photo or upload a photo you already have. Then choose from Women's Dresses, Women's Shirts or Men's Shirts.
After uploading my photo:
•A strapless dress in pink champagne with large soft pink flowers with a sweetheart bustline, nipped in waist and full skirt. Gloria Estefan on the cover of the Sam's Club magazine Healthy Living was my photo source.•
I was shown about 25/-30 dresses. Some of the dresses were in the same color range, but none resembled the dress in any way.
The instructions say to crop out any extraneous images for the best results. I tried several different crops, all had the same results.
The premise of the app is wonderful. If the app worked - I would have no issue paying for the service. This would also be an app that I would share with friends. Including a social feature to the app would be fun & helpful too.
I hope the developers continue to work on improving the app.
:/ Expected More
I originally used the app because of a article titled "Chic Engine Helps You Find That Dress You Saw on Pinterest." I was very excited until after attempting to use it for 10 different dresses - it a) did not help me find that dress I saw on Pinterest and b) it did not even come close to the original dress and just cycled through the same set of dresses they have in their database. Sadly, the website is very flawed as well. I attempted to click on the Pinterest links available and it would glitch every time. All in all - a good idea - I suppose it could be useful to some that just want general inspiration for dresses.
Do not download - super old version
This app has not been updated in 5 years. If you haven't been hiding under a rock, then you know that since 2012 there have been a few iPhones and other devices updated since then. Apple has also updated their software numerous times. Why this app continues to stay in the App Store is beyond me. The orientation of the app is not even for firmware 10. It looks like it's meant for an iPhone 4 which was many a years ago.
Don't waste your time.
