Customizer and Designer and Editor, Oh My!

What Do You Call That App?

It goes by many names, but it turns out there isn’t a common word for the type of app we call our MyStyle Customizer™. Lots of people contact us asking about our “Customizer”, but a lot of people also ask if we have a customizer but just don’t know the right word to describe it.

Here’s some of the phrases we’ve seen that describe what we here call our MyStyle Customizer.

What is the Mystyle Customizer?

Our customizer is the visual tool that people use to create new designs on their products. Our customizer is extremely diverse and comes in many different forms. At times the customizer may only be a simple upload or text field and at other times the customizer is a full blown visual UI/UX for creating customized and personalized products. This is one of the key parts involved in personalization and customization because for every app, every product, every design, and every person is everything can be different. That is also why there are so many ways of describing a customizer.

Customizers are typically contained within an exterior website, application, kiosk, or display case and are a subsection of an overall customization or personalization website. In many cases people using our customization app are actually using it on other people’s websites! This can also make it hard to define precisely where the boundaries are on the MyStyle Customizer as it is seamlessly integrated with existing solutions.

There are always new ways of describing this type of app because there is no standard word for it! With all these options we wanted a single word that describes it best and went with customizer. So whether you’re looking for a “designer” or a “print previewer” or an “image maker” you’ve come to the right place. But around these parts we just call it the Mystyle Customizer :-)
