Apptastic Christmas Shopping
With so many stores offering sales and promotions this holiday season, there are many new smartphone apps to help you navigate.
Start out with an app called "Fast Mall", billed as turn-by-turn navigation technology for pedestrians trying to navigate shopping malls.
Once you download any mall app you can get interactive navigation even without an Internet signal; check out a map, locate stores, restrooms, and even find deals and coupons for your shopping.
There are thousands of shopping malls from almost every city in the database, making this is a very cool and totally free iPhone app.
For Android users, try “Christmas Shopper Pro”, a 99-cent app to plan your gift buying for all your friends and relatives.
For iPhone users, look at the $1.99 “Better Christmas” app -- it does the same thing as well as letting you track purchases and set up a budget for holiday spending.
Another great free app for both iPhone and Android is “The Dealmap”, which locates the best local deals, coupons, and discounts.
You can also visit their website which features a map you can zoom into to find local deals, daily emails and Tweets for the best deals of the day.
