Ah, blissful and breezy browsing. Sometimes you need some inspiration – whether for design, creativity, or some retail therapy. Whether you’re creating or buying, here’s some great apps to find your next muse.

Pinterest

Pinterest.com is a fascinating social network – you can “pin” practically anything to a group, called a “board.” Browsing boards will bring you boatloads of inspirational images, objects and ideas, but the mobile app lets you take this experience on the go. Plus, you can snap photos direct from the app and pin them right then!
