The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app is fairly easy to navigate by clicking on the appropriate icons and typing text where needed. Posters can use their iPhone's camera to take photos of themselves, or transfer photos onto their device and upload them that way.


While the app does allow users to share photos of theoretically anything they want, we didn't see any photos with explicit sexual content. Comments might include discussions such as what kind of bra to wear underneath a particular tank top.


There's no obvious language filter or system for reporting profane language in comments, so exposure to strong language is a possibility although we didn't see any in posters' comments.


The app is a tie-in to the main Go Try It On website, where participants ask for advice about an outfit they are considering buying (or considering wearing if they already have the outfit). Posters can tag photos with the brands of clothing on display, such as Target, Victoria's Secret, or American Eagle. When registering for an account you're prompted to sign up for email alerts and site news (you can opt out through settings). The app also has links to the App Store.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Go Try It On is the mobile extension of the website of the same name, which blends fashion advice with social networking. Users can comment on and rate photos of each other by voting either "Wear It" or "Change It," or compare up to four photos side by side with "Which Should I Wear?" There are some obvious privacy concerns here; even though faces on photos can be blurred it's strictly optional, and the app uploads first name and last initial plus location along with each photo. Other people who are in the frame when the photo is taken risk having their image uploaded to the Internet without their consent. The ratio of female to male users is about 10:1.

Is it any good?

GO TRY IT ON is a fun concept for budding fashionistas who want to connect with other fashion-minded posters for feedback on outfits, clothing, and accessories. While apps like these have the potential to be mean-spirited, the comments we saw were overwhelmingly positive and even helpful; for example: "It (a shirt) looks a bit baggy on you. A belt or jacket with it will give you a nice curve." An app like this should be treated with care because of the privacy concerns associated with it, but Go Try It On does a better job than Fashism about putting filters in place. With supervision, kids starting at around 13 can have some fun with it.
