There's often a lot of waiting around on shoots - for hair and make-up, for the sun to emerge, for the rain to stop, for the photographers assistants to fix the lighting, for the model to finish her cigarette...
As geeky as it may sound, our nifty iPhone applications are really what pull us through. Here are some of our favourites that we're more than slightly addicted to:
Nylon - a one-stop shop to read stories, see photos, listen to music, and watch the latest episodes of NYLON TV.
Style.com - watch runway shows, read the Style File blogs, ogle over what Alexa Chung wore to the last night's premiere, you get the idea.
Ebay - cheap Karen Walker on-the-go? No explanation needed.
Urban Spoon - part Magic 8 Ball, part slot machine; you shake your phone and it magically finds a good restaurant near you.
nytimes.com - as exciting as it is listening to who's had the latest Botox treatments, it's nice to read about the world outside of our fashion cupboard.
Tetris - no-one can get a peep out of Goldielocks when she's in Tetris mode. This one costs money, but it's worth it on entertainment value.
