With one day left before Santa goes "Ho-Ho-Ho," there are still a lot of people struggling to complete their shopping list. For the panicking shoppers, here's a list of top 5 apps that will help you survive the holiday shopping rush.
This free app, as its name suggests, can help you pick items to wrap for your family and friends this Christmas. It has instant access to 2,000 merchants and with just a few taps on the screen, you might be able to strike a name or two on your shopping list. The app will just ask you some questions and find the perfect gift based on your answers.
While couriers today have efficient delivery systems, there is still no guarantee when you know that almost every soul in the planet have tapped their services. If you want to be in the know where your gift packages are, Delivery Status is worth the $3 (on a 40 percent off promo for Christmas). Whether you are using FedEx, UPS, DHL or 27 other delivery services, you will be able to track all your items using this one app. If one tends to forget what you are giving out to everyone, it can also help users remember with a labeling feature.
This app is so named because of the red laser checkout counters use to scan barcodes. It functions the same way and allows users to scan codes so one can find the best price from various local retailers. It can also help you avoid items that may contain allergens that can harm your loved ones.
People tend to shop and forget how much they have been spending during the holiday rush. A lot of people also misplace receipts amid the frenzy and that can be a lot of hassle if you have to return a product for refund or exchange. The Lemon Wallet is a smart wallet that allows you to take a picture of receipts, cards, ID's, and practically anything, so you have them all stored in your mobile device.
While not everyone is a fan of discounted shopping, it can come useful if you have a tight budget for the holidays. The app comes with themed collections for the holiday season so you can easily find gift items that might be perfect for whoever you have in mind. The app allows one to purchase or redeem deals. It also allows you to keep track of the vouchers you have so you can use them before they expire.
