Next

Popular UK retailer Next has released official apps for Windows and Windows Phone, enabling consumers to enjoy the latest fashion at their fingertips. The main feature of both the apps is to shop while on the move for free, browsing ranges of quality clothes, shoes and homeware from Next. The universal apps themselves fit in nicely with the overall experience of Microsoft's ecosystem.

Since there are many, many products available to browse through, convenient navigation, search and filters are available to narrow everything down for those dream purchases. Here are some of the highlighted features, listed on the Windows Phone Store:

  • The full online range of hundreds of Next products
  • Easy to use navigation and search
  • Secure payment and access to your Next Directory account
  • Next day delivery promise when ordered before 10pm
  • Free returns
  • "Buy Now, Pay Later" feature
  • Store Locator

Next Windows 8

They're neat hybrid (mixing the best of native and web worlds) apps with solid functionality, particularly the next day delivery and store locator, just in case either are hastily required. There's room for improvements but it's great to see yet more official support.
