Black Friday 2012: 5 apps to help you shop
Going Black Friday shopping? These five free smartphone apps will help you find the best deals and stay organized on the big day. Happy shopping!
Best for: Easy comparison shopping on specific items
Not sure if the item in front of you is the one with the best price? Scan the barcode with Nextag’s built in scanner, and the app will pull up prices on the same item from other vendors. You can sort results by price, consumer rating, date the price was found, or popularity. You can also take a photo of any item you want (say a co-worker has a pair of boots you just love), and the app can tell you what it is and where to find it (like Shazam for shopping). The app will also calculate tax and shipping costs for your area, eliminating any guesswork.
