The lowdown: Sometimes, getting dressed in the morning can seem like an insurmountable task. We’re pretty impressed with the Cloth app, which is essentially like having a personal stylist on call – but she’ll work with what you’ve already got in your closet. You can upload pics of your favorite outfits to the app, which sorts them based on what weather they’re suited for. From there, you can get advice from friends about what you should wear to that party (if you choose to let them into your virtual closet), as well as search through all kinds of looks from other users around the world. Kinda like being able to search The Sartorialist by color/designer/occasion/whatever.

Bonus points: You can also set Cloth to serve up a few weather-appropriate options, alongside the forecast, when you get up in the morning. You’ve still gotta figure out what the heck to eat for breakfast, but at least one decision point just got easier!
