Instead of waiting on those really freakin’ long lines to get holiday gifts this year, why not get what you need on your iPhone? Thanks to iTunes, there are enough awesome shopping apps to fill a Barney’s Warehouse. Some tell you where the sales are before they even start, so finding those boots you’ve been wanting on-sale has never been easier. We’ve weeded out the winners from the duds to bring you these top 5 shopping apps:
1. Etsy Addict ($.99): This app has all the quirk of Etsy, but in the palm of your hand. Search the handmade products by color, price, etc., and even click to buy. You can also keep lists of favorite sellers and products – which is crucial since there are more Etsy sellers than we can shake a (glittered) stick at.
2. Lucky At Your Service (Free): Shop the app’s Lucky editor-approved products, then find your picks in a store nearby (using the phone’s GPS). The app will even call the store for you and have the item put on hold. The wish-list feature lets you send any product your little heart desires to your friends (ahem, boyfriend) via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
3. Glamour Magazine (Free): If you’re a magazine junkie, this is your app. It’s free to download and each interactive issue of Glamour is $3.99. You can even save your favorite pieces within the magazines’ virtual pages and the app will tell you where you can buy them.
5. Groupon (Free): We love Groupon normally but the (eco-friendly) app eliminates the hassle of having to print out the coupons. The app lets you search, purchase, and catalog your Groupons on the go; it also creates a map of places nearby where you can buy Groupons.
