The Orla Kiely App

Orla Kiely has launched her first ever app, which makes shopping on your iPad and iPhone super easy now. The app is free so make sure to check it out!

The Orla Kiely logo appears when you first launch the app.

The home screen has a grid layout, similar to the "features" section of the Orla Kiely website. You can choose to shop or view the lookbooks at the top.

And if you scroll further you can click on even more options.

When you click on "shop now" a menu of all the products, along with a search option at the top, appear.

The pictures are very streamlined and easy to look at. I noticed immediately, however, that the prices are in pounds and not dollars. I haven't been able to find an option to convert the prices, but I'll keep looking and let you know if it's possible.

The app is very easy to navigate and allows you to return to the previous screen quickly. Check out some of those newer style sunglasses!

I especially enjoyed browsing the lookbook - easy swipes allow you to turn the pages quickly. However, I wish there was an option to zoom in so you can see the details better. It would also be nice to shop from the lookbook directly by clicking on certain elements of the photo you're interested in. For example, if I wanted to purchase the Tabitha Bag shown above, how easy and convenient would it be to just click on it and be directed to its product page? However, these are just minor cons in an overall wonderfully easy-to-navigate and attractive app. 

Its simple icon is perfectly housed in my "shopping" folder on my iPad.
