It happens every year. Just when you think you’ve recovered from fashion week madness, holiday shenanigans go into full swing, often leaving you overwhelmed and unorganized. But by downloading a few key apps on Windows Store this holiday season you’ll get just the help you need with just a few swipes and taps. Here are some of our favorite apps available for Microsoft phones, tablets and PCs.


Next Issue Magazine

It should come as no shock that we’re magazine lovers. But truth be told with our smartphones and tablets always in reach, you won’t always catch us with the paper kind. Downloading our favorite titles through Next Issue Magazine is the best way to keep up to date on our favorite subscriptions even when we’re pressed for time.



As if we needed another excuse to shop at Zara, they’ve gone ahead and created an irresistible app that is clean and easy to navigate. The hardest part will be showing restraint on your next purchase.



The holiday season means our social calendars are filled with holiday celebrations... that we’ll need shoes for. And now you can order your next pair while trekking on-the-go with just one click on the Zappos app.



Searching for gift ideas that are personal and instant? Send a Zinio gift card and give them the gift of reading not only their favorite magazine, but also discovering a new favorite app.




If there’s one thing we just can’t shake it’s our Instagram addiction. It’s flooded with style inspiration and with the holidays here we have even more reasons to be double tapping and posting more than ever. ‘Tis the season.



Having Amazon Prime available on our phones and tablets is just about one of the most dangerous and useful things to happen to our wallets. Run out of paper towels? Done. Need a new coat rack? Done. Holiday shopping for your nieces and nephews? Done! All in your cab ride downtown with the Amazon app.
