    "This Nike site exceeded my expectations with category and choices. So many colors, styles and uses for my active lifestyle! The site offers 'customization' which I need for my alien body type; long legs, torso and arms and my FUPA. My credit card will definitely be overloaded with all my purchases. I LOVE you, Nike!"

      "No, this is a bad recommendation. I was hoping for a list of apps, not just one app, and certainly not the most popular social media websites."

      "Camera+ has some neat photo editing capabilities, though I'm not sure that would make it a "hipster" app - everyone wants to make their pictures look good. An app I'd describe as being explicitly a "hipster" app would probably be more life-style focused. I'd characterize this particular app as being helpful for those who want to be able to make simple edits to pictures directly on mobile devices before uploading them, but if you want to portray a certain lifestyle or aesthetic, an app alone will not totally do everything for you."

      "The quality of pictures on phones keeps getting better, yet the best pictures taken need a little something extra...like the Camera+ app. Every hipster needs Camera+ with its incredible features like tons of effects and filters to optimize the quality of every single photo and make your friends jealous!"

      "Uber and hipsters go hand in hand. I feel like I first learned about uber from my hipster friends who live in Park Slope. The concept of Uber is genius. It basically took what ever person in NYC was thinking "why can't we order a taxi online?, why can't we pay for taxi rides online?" and created a service that really is appealing to not only hipsters (though they do love it) but all people. Uber took it one step further by letting riders rate drivers and really make the app something that helps better our lives."

      "If there are a few things I know about hipsters, it's that they don't own their own cars and they don't have a lot of money. So when they have to travel beyond those areas covered by trains and buses, the costs of taxis and limousines are beyond that which they can afford. Enter Uber, the ridesharing app. Getting you where you need to go, when you need to go, at a semi-reasonable rate. This app is perfect for hipsters."

      "I once tried to call an Uber, it got there late and I had to still pay the same amount of money to get to my destination. It was a mess, but most of the time they are perfect and a great way to get around that doesn't have the pitfalls of calling a taxi."

      "While Venmo is a modern hip way to send and receive money between friends, the topic was not about transferring money. The app is not aimed strictly toward hipster either, so it would not be one of the best apps for hipsters."

It showed me what was at the time time my favorite blogs that had the most, i thought obscure music but now I know that all my friends and a whole bunch of random people listen to those tracks and read those blogs. It will help me find places to avoid."

I do think that the app is well designed and intuitive, and even though I can't use it now, I look forward to when it becomes an option in my town. It's such a great alternative to public transportation, and I love that people who provide services have a way to make some extra case."
