Any opinions on this app? Should I even bother adding items from my closet into it or will lolibrary stay the best for keeping record of one's wardrobe?
>>
>>10670827
Never tried it personally, but it looks pretty promising
>>
>>10670827
Can you manually add dresses? That’s one thing I hate about lolibrary
>>
>>10670887
You can. For me that was one of the main reasons I got interested in this. That and also that you can actually choose which colour you own
>>
I kinda want this for my normie clothes too

>>10670899
btw OP you're namefagging in case you haven't noticed
>>
>>10670827
I hate the entire layout & font. It looks like it was made by a kid.
>>
>>10670827
>>10670924
Also, I can't justify using this. I used many-a-wishlist makers once upon a time and they are far more intuitive than this. If you can't create an add on for a browser to grab links/photos like pinterest then I'm not interested.

Let's be real, this won't hold unless they can create something that justifies using *another* list maker.
>>
>>10670827
0/10 OP. This looks like shit. Did you do this all by yourself? Your graphic design sense is absolutely shit, are you an ageplayer? What a pathetic shill.
>>
>>10670926

OP is clearly the one who made this shitty app.
>>

Oof. Of course they have a shit eye for graphic design, they can hardly dress themselves appropriately.

Luckily I'm not that person, as you see in one the replies, you can easily find who the creator is. Especially because of the way that person dresses, I was sceptical if this would be any good. I'm a newbie and was just genuinely curious of what people with experience think about this.
>>
>>10670950
TLDR it's bad. Lolitas have been through the gauntlet and aren't going to use something this poorly designed.
>>
Just... use a spreadsheet? And/or save photos in a folder for quick reference.
I keep track of price/date purchased/ who I bought from/special notes. An app isn't needed.
>>
great idea, horrible execution - the UI looks like it was done by a toddler and it instantly turns me off from trying it and just from the 3 screenshots the UX seems like a pain too. There are terribly drawn furries on every page, why? Also it sounds like you're trying to create or fill out a lolita item database but why when we already have a huge comprehensive community-driven database Lolibrary that also has a closet and wishlist feature?

What you made exists in other forms that are more intuitive and less ugly. I have no idea how this runs (and I do not want to download it to find out) but biggest advice: hire someone to overhaul the UI. Most of us are adults with careers or in college, and do not want to use an app that looks like it's for pwetty pwetty pwincesses.
>>
>>10670827
I personally prefer pinterest for wardrobe and wishlist organization thus wouldn't need an app with the same purpose, but I think the creator genuinely meant well and wanted to make something helpful. They're probably still working on it and adding items to the search function but at least it's free and they're not charging you $70 for full access.
>>
>>10670827
Would consider using if it didn't look ugly as sin.
I currently keep track of my closet through a personal blog on top of lolibrary so I don't really need much else.
>>
I use it and love it. But I have an extensive wardrobe & this helps with creating coords. I like we can manually add things, as a lot of my wardrobe is missing from Lolibrary or has incorrect information about the pieces.
>>
>>10670993
you can also add things to update information to lolibrary as well anon
>>
>>10670999
Ntayrt but unless you have sources to back up the info on your dress it doesn't get added or at least in my experience it doesn't
>>
>>10670999
I've sent countless edits & additions to Lolibrary and they never do so. I'm surprised it's rated a nonprofit when they clearly rarely update it...
>>
>>10671006
that's a fair thing to ask to keep a database with accurate as possible information?

>>10671062
lolibrary is frequently updated nearly every day

join the discord and help out on the existing database with over 50,000 items instead of reinventing what already exists

This is why lolitas don't deserve to have nice things. This person made a free resource, poured lots of hours into a project just to be ripped apart. The UI art and features are easily updateable once it goes live and people give actually useful feedback. It has a lot of potential, but people just want to whine that the first iteration is not perfect. Nobody is getting paid for this, you aren't going to get the most incredible art.

This is why a lot of projects for lolitas get abandoned, like those lolita social media sites, zines and countless things that anons on here have talked about. At least this creator actually put together something usable.
>>
>>10670827
Why is it such a pain in the ass to add colors that they don't list? They really should let you link lolibrary pieces directly to your closet as well since the search engine sucks...
>>
>>10671070
>lolita social media sites
went down due to lack of funding + lack of need
>zines
the most recent one was a cashgrab wankfest but plenty exist and are still being made
>once it goes live
it's already live

Having both UI and UX, fundamental components for a successful application, be so bad right away is a giant red flag that puts the creator's taste and skill into question.

>At least this creator actually put together something usable.
about the equivalent of cooking a meal and burning it to a crisp but it still being technically "edible"
>>
>>10671070
I agree with the sentiment but also agree that this app is both poorly executed and not really practical. Like idk, does anyone even need a list like this?

Tbh one of the big reasons why lolitas can’t have social media spaceships apps is because of constant invasion of perverts.
>>
>>10671065
I didn't say it wasn't fair to keep things accurate but the fact is there isn't any sources for a lot what's out there.
I would love to add half my wardrobe to lolibrary but can't find any sources for the life of me because a lot of my stuff is old, unpopular, or plain gothic stuff from brands like Miho Matsuda and BPN that don't have names.
>>
>>10671070
Bro. Anyone can make an app and what is in OP is literally 'anyone can make an app' to the definition.
>>
Is this only an Android app or something?
>>
>>10671080
>Tbh one of the big reasons why lolitas can’t have social media spaceships apps is because of constant invasion of perverts

What a load of bullshit. Lolitas themselves cannibalize anyone who creates apps or content for the community.
>>
>>10671157
Do we? OR is it the trannies/their allies that think they deserve to take women down a peg to make men in dresses feel better and feel like they are winning a competition no woman signed up for?
>>
>>10670927
>>10671155
Looks like it's actually more of a website and the app just directs you to it
>>
>>10671070
My thoughts exactly. The UI can be changed easily to something simple and useable (just remove the unecessary clutter, basically). But the developper isn't professional, and did this for free, why are you expecting profesionnal quality ?
Lolitas can be so fucking entitled sometimes, it's embarassing.
>>
>>10671157
No, lolitas aren’t the ones crowding the Lolita fashion hashtag with nudes or trying (and sometimes successfully) bringing their fetish into cof. The Lolita community is too small to support the kind of work that would have to go into maintaining a Lolita specific app or social media site. And no one wants to even bother doing that because the moment it gets any traction at all it’s going to get flooded with perverts and sexualized content. The sheer amount of work it takes to sort out the nsfw content and perverts is absolutely prohibitive, especially since the expectation of the app is that it should be free.

>>10671159
Fuck you, you transphobic toilet plunger. 95% of the degeneracy I see clogging up Lolita spaces and tags are uwu sad e-girls looking for daddy and constantly tagging their erotic content incorrectly no matter how many times people try to tell them to please stop.
>>
>>10671098
There are a couple people devoted to those brands, have you tried submitting an entry or contacting them? You can become a lolibrarian if you really want to add your stuff.
>>
>>10671229
>transphobic
No one likes troons on here. If you don't like it, then don't use a board that people can actually openly speak their thoughts about idiots with dicks trying to integrate themselves with us.
>>
>>10671242
NTA but I’m fine with trans folks and I’m on here. There’s always a lot of pushback when the issue comes up so clearly some people do fucktard. You can always tell how insecure and sad some people are on here when they insist that “eVeRyOnE oN hErE” is as pathetic/hateful/concerned with other peoples genitals as they are.
>>
>>10671242
Besides anon isn’t wrong. Just go look at the hashtags. It’s pretty much exclusively sexy baby’s and ethots tagging their pacifier onesie looks and up skirts as “Lolita fashion”
>>
>>10671244
>>10671245
Ok, but cgl gulls predominately hate troons. So congrats.
>>
>>10671192
No one is demanding the developer do anything so I don’t know what entitlement you’re seeing. We’re just saying it looks like shit so we won’t use it
>>
>>10671248
Do they though? Because every time is comes up the thread descends into chaos. Tbh I think it’s mostly scrote trolls anyways. Truth is, men/trans women haven’t really had or made problems in any of the comms I’ve ever been in over the last 14 years or so. Most people actually don’t give a fuck anon. As long as you’re not bothering people (which none of the people in my comms had done) no one really cares. In fact the most irritating and problematic comm members I’ve ever seen were all presumably cis women with a fucking e fame thirsty god complex.

When you defend troons, you're defending men who will victimize girls and women if it brings them profit or makes their dick hard.

This is even without mentioning the countless amount of women and girls who had their pictures uploaded onto fetish sites which ended up being traced back to men.

Troons will force their fetishes onto random strangers and those that speak out against shit like bad dragon discussions are called transphobic. No one wants to deal with those creeps offline.
>>
>>10671262
Of course I know about sissies, but they’ve literally never been an issue in any of the comms I’ve been in. I’ve only ever seen it online and heard people screeching about it on here in spite of the fact that one trans=\sissy by definition and two, in my experience it’s basically a non issue irl and the comm I’m in currently has both active trans women and Brolitas without issue.

>>10671266
Ah yes, and cis folks never steam roll everybody and bring up their weird sex shit at public meetups. Did it ever occur to you that by focusing so hard core on trans people you’re actively detracting from the poor behavior of cis people ? I sat at a fucking picnic meet and watched this cis girl giggle and make disgusting remarks about how the lemonade reminded them of her golden showers with daddy. It’s not about the gender or their presentation it’s about the behavior. By trying to equate gender and behavior you basically give free reign to cis fucktards who can’t behave like a decent human being for two hours.

Having your pics uploaded to random unsavory sites is just one of the occupational hazards of posting online. You think anyone in the ita thread is pumped to have their picture on there? Go get therapy anon, you’re hate boner is showing and cutting off circulation to your brain.
>>
>>10671192
>The UI can be changed easily to something simple and useable (just remove the unnecessary clutter, basically)
"clutter" isn't the only issue with the UI anon
>why are you expecting profesionnal quality
OP asked for opinions, so I gave them. Even if this wasn't cgl I'm not going to coddle someone if they made something shitty. And there's multiple posts saying it's ugly and is this even necessary, 2 foundation problems that should have been taken care of before anyone even starts writing any code. I don't want to use a subpar application just because it's "for lolitas, by lolitas", especially because everything this app seems to do exists in the form of the nicer looking and community-driven Lolibrary which also has a much bigger database.
>>
>>10671262
>Complaining about LARPers
>Using tiktok zoomer phrases
No offense but you look really retarded right now.
Anyways, anon has a point. Look at how the lolita community on public socials acts and you'll see most girls don't care about trans people or call themselves allies. A majority of the community comes here so that extends to cgl too. The only difference between cgl and public socials is that this is the only place the radfemfags can speak without being "CANCELLED" so the poor things have to screech as loud and often as possible to get it all out.

Yeah. I'm saying just because you can't find sources, doesn't mean they can't.
>>
>>10671304
Most of the trannies I’ve met get off on the thought of being a woman. Lolita is 100% a sexual experience for them, just like skinwalking as a woman is. And consider yourself lucky that sissies haven’t made you uncomfortable at any of your comm meets.
>>
>>10671376
This. I've had a lot of personal conversations with a bunch of troons since it became popular to transition for men. Something like 2008 I had one try to pull me into a threesome with my ex. I had another close friend that turned into one as well sometime around 2013. They do porn and had a long period of drug abuse and mental illness.

They are generally pretty intensely into fetishy shit. They are not the soft femm you think they are. Damn. It's not safe to be bringing these people in close to minors.

When will women stop drinking the tranny koolaid, it's honestly embarrassing, especially since it's more socially acceptable for most men to be faggy meaning those men in question who imo were the least harmful trannies are less likely to transition now, so most of the troons nowadays you see are agps graduating from inceldom who are perverts and paedophiles and rampant men's rights advocates. Please put other women first before a stinky balding man in a wig. If you have a problem with this, off yourself.
>>
>>10671430
Can agree. Just thought I'd add, if they actually transitioned then they'd be asexual and not harmful to society. So you guys really need to be pressuring them for their vaginal paperwork instead of letting them get off to you thinking they are passing.
>>
>>10671430
>>10671438
Yup. Ask any of them what it feels like for them to "be a woman" and you will get some pornsick garbage about being dominated and a "bimbo" (actual word I heard a troon acquaintance use). Actual women won't spout sexual fetish shit when asked the same question.
>>
>>10671386
Agreed anon. The ones I've talked to are heavy sexual deviants. I followed one on twitter and all they do is repost loli porn.
>>
>>10671304
you have trannies in your comm. She likely didn't even identify as cis. I will take an oversharing sex worker over a literal man who steals used pads from the ladies room any day of the week.
And the amount of women sharing their sex stories is much less common, in part thanks to slut shaming. Your comm probably normalized fetish talk to the point that even natural women are engaging in it
>>
>>10671890
If we assume she wasn't a he/him female presenting tranny, and an actual woman that isn't a figment of your imagination, then yeah that speaks volumes about your comm's climate and what is acceptable.
>>
>>10670827
The graphic design is crap. There is simply no need for an app like this when there's a bunch of normie clothing apps that work a lot better, and can be used with lolita.
>>
>>10671921
any reccs?
>>
Yep! I have things to moan about!

I just downloaded it to have a further look at it. I can remember a while back when they were looking for suggestions and asking what people wanted in an app, for a start, looks like most of it has been ignored? At this point it's kinda just looking like an uglier version of lolibrary with 2 extra features?? Which personally I see no point in making and spending time/ money if that is all it's going to be?

Hopefully the creators see this thread so they can get some actually useful critique, instead of suck ass Facebook compliments and pat's on the back. Also, I don't think it's even an app?? It looks like it links externally to a website which is kinda weird / lazy??
>>
It's cute. It's not professional or amazing. But for a free app its cute and the creator put some time and effort into it. I downloaded it, but haven't used it yet. I do intend to try it out though.

There are a lot of high expectations for this, but this is clearly just someone's passion project, who wants to try and make something others may find useful. We shouldn't expect a perfectly polished product. The creator is probably going to update it and improve it as time goes on.
>>
i wish there was an app or site that had the option to make our wardrobes like profiles and listings for induvial items being comment-able and stuff. thatd be nice for lolitas and would help with buy/selling stuff too ig. i dont get why someone hasnt made that yet. guess i just want poupee girl back
>>
>>10673085
I wish the community had some kind of coord app/site where people could upload pics of their outfits and tag them not just by brand but specific piece. So if someone wanted to see how a certain item looked they could just search the actual print or dress name and see how other people coordinated it. Most people just tag the brand in coord pics so finding a worn pic of anything (especially if it's not a big brand like AP) is way too difficult.
>>
>>10673094
I would love this. Even some AP prints have very few tags, or it's a series with a lot of different items, cuts, and colorways so you might not even be able to find any examples of what you're looking for even if it does have a tag.
>>
>>10673105
>>10673094
Sounds like a good idea imo. We've needed a lot of things in the community, but definitely not replication of what we actually do have.
>>
>>10673085
>>10673094
Something like myfigurecollection.net would be amazing for lolita. Where people post what the items look like irl, replicas so you know what to look out for, selling the items right there and commenting on the items.

Do you know what the most important thing in lolita fashion is? Appearance. So, truthfully, if you're seriously wanting to make a popular lolita app, appearance comes first with usability second. I can't imagine why a app with a blue hamburger macaroon and a doughnut with Comic-Sans level font wasn't popular. There's your real input. Know your audience before you cuss them out.

Also, find a good artist to pay. People would be willing to pay a fee for a good app. You're talking about women regularly wearing $400+ outfits. They can afford to pay.

>truthfully, if you're seriously wanting to make a popular lolita app, appearance comes first with usability second.
Literally everyone uses lolibrary which has just a simple white background though, I’ll take plain over obnoxious any day.

Does anyone have a link? I want to look at the app myself but I can't find it.
>>
>>10674968
It is called my everyday lolita

>>10674967
And the one thing people hate about lolilibrary is that you can't manually add dresses. So, there's room for innovation.
>>
>>10671229
The usual cycle is lolita creates something for the community good or bad. The thing either doesn't get enough traction on social media platforms and the creator posts it on cgl or the wrong person sees it and decides to post it on cgl. From there it gets ripped apart and everytime there is a minor issue it gets reposted. The cycle continues until the creator gets tired of the abuse or it doesn't make enough money and they cut there losses. And once again the limits community doesn't grow
>>
>>10678881
>creator gets tired of the abuse or it doesn't make enough money and they cut there losses.
You do realize any major product on the internet has criticism about a product? If you get beat down by your users criticism and don't seek to learn from it, then you shouldn't have a tech product.
>>
>>10678892
Normally I would agree but our community has a long history. Think back from the last 10 years. Lacebook, paradiso, LACE, The Disneyland event, the lolita coloring book. To name a few.
>>
>>10678892
It's normal to get user criticism but normally that criticism doesn't include getting told to kill yourself and having your face posted everywhere in /cgl harassment parties lol
>>
>>10678892
See >>10678910
>>
>>10679293
This criticism was warranted. A LARPer was trying to vet lolitas. That deserves to be BTFO.

Using this I think it needs some work but overall great for being free. I'd love to see where it goes
