Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and retailers do everything they can to bring you into their stores in hopes that you will spend big money. Gone are the days of going through the Black Friday ads in your local newspaper. In a post-iPhone world, we have apps for everything and these Black Friday apps not only help you locate the deals, but help you organize your shopping lists and manage your expenses, making your Black Friday shopping experience as efficient and affordable as possible.
This Black Friday app is available for both Apple and Android devices and allows users to cull through Black Friday ads and create shopping list that can be synced to the web and other devices.

Black Friday Survival Guide
Available for Apple and Android devices, Black Friday Survival Guide is another app allowing users to search through Black Friday deals, but this app’s strength is in how well categorized everything is, making the search experience very intuitive, even for newbies to these sorts of apps.

ShopKick is another year-round app, but its use can prove particularly beneficial during the Black Friday rush. This Apple and Android app lets users earn reward points for shopping at stores like Target, Wet Seal, Toys R Us, Crate & Barrel, Macy’s, Best Buy, Old Navy and Sports Authority.
