The wait is over, Primpers! Our new and improved app build has finally launched and is available for download in the iTunes app store! So stop reading (just for a second), pull out your iPhone and update your Pretty in my Pocket app. Do it. Did you do it? Ok thank you!
Now take a look at your brand spankin new app as I guide you through all the new features of primptastic fun.
Profile and Find!
We have updated your Profile page to include “Looks”, where all your “hearted” Looks are saved for future reference. You can also now see who is following you with the Followers button… this took us FOREVER to come up with You still have your virtual beauty Bag, Wish-list, and Reviews as well as a place to keep track of all the Perks you have used.
Helpful hint: If you would like to change your profile picture, click the Settings button on the top right.
We have added a whole new “People” tab where you can browse your friends’ activity on the app, follow our beauty experts – cleverly named Power Primpers and Makeup Mavens, follow your Facebook friends and contacts, or search for users by name. If your favorite beauty blogger says to find her on the PRIMP app – this is the spot to start searching! Also we encourage that you invite your friends by clicking the Invite tab at the top right of your screen!
The Popular tab is the holy grail of beauty advice, tips, and trends. Seriously, it has everything. It includes a Featured page, Top Products, and the ever so beautiful Looks which are uploaded by our Primpers!
Featured and All-Time Top Products
The first page that pops up when you tap Popular is the Featured tab. The Featured tab is a way for us to talk directly to you! Make sure to look at it frequently for product news, trends, and sweepstakes (aka FREE stuff!).
Helpful hint: Click the bolded title on each Featured post for more information, links to blogs, and more!
All-Time brings together the Top 20 EVERYTHING. Seriously, any beauty product you can think of, we have a category for it. You can’t go wrong with any of these top products – they are the highest rated and most bagged in the PRIMP community!
Helpful hint: Be sure to review your favorite products with a 5-star review AND add it to your bag to see it in the Top Products!
Our favorite part of the app is the “Looks” section where you can upload pictures of yourself or other people, tag specific products used and link to How-To videos! Genius, right? Everything you could ever want to re-create a look all at your fingertips!
Add a look from your Photo Gallery or pull up the camera to take a photo right then and there! Click on different parts of the photo to search and tag the specific products you used. This way other Primpers can re-create your look or see what a product actually looks like on. While you are browsing, go ahead and “heart” your favorite looks to save them to your profile or click “Get the Look” for detailed product usage and descriptions.
Helpful hint: If you spot a little camera (in the lower right hand corner of the Detailed Look) click it for a How-To video of the look. How cool is that?
So there you have it, Primpers! Download the app, get active, and stay connected through friend and expert beauty-loving know how! From a quick barcode scan to pull up reviews and looks to smart beauty advice from our experts – it is everything you could ever want to make a smart beauty purchase!
