A Fancy mobile app (pictures)

Much like its biggest competitor Pinterest, Fancy lets you curate a wishlist, follow users, and keep track of items you love. The big difference, though, is Fancy's built-in shop.

Getting started

Fancy lets you log in with Twitter or Facebook credentials, or create a new account the old-fashioned way.

Men's wear

If a full feed of feature items gets overwhelming, you can also browse items by category.

Lists, not pinboards

Fancy lets you add items to multiple lists at once -- something Pinterest and its pinboards cannot do.

Different from Pinterest, Fancy has a built-in shop, where you can purchase items you come across, sometimes at a discount.
