It's the holiday season. The only time of year where you can genuinely say you hate shopping. To save you from having to camp out for door buster sales, beat down crazy shopping moms and having to wait in long lines at the register, we've pulled together eight of our favorite shopping apps for your iPhone and/or iPad to make holiday shopping a breeze this year, despite your busy schedule.
Lucky At Your Service The ultimate shopping magazine also has the ultimate shopping app. Lucky At Your Service is like having a personal shopper at all times. The app allows you to browse through featured products, buy online or search for a store location with the product nearest to you. The digital concierge will even call the store for you to put the product on hold in the size and color you want for same day pick-up.
iShoes This shoe database is shoe porn heaven. You can search more than 50,000 shoes by brand or type of shoe, and buy immediately from your phone. The app alerts you when your selected shoe goes on sale. With the holidays coming up the wishlist and Facebook functions are great ways to drop a hint.
Lustr Fashion Finder We all want to be in the know of trunk shows, sample sales and other fashion-related events. Lustr Fashion Finder sends push notifications to your phone or iPad with fashion events in your area. Create a shopping itinerary for the day and invite your friends to join you.
ShopStyle Just like the website, the ShopStyle app allows you to browse fashion by category or brand, and then refine your search by keyword, color, price range, sale and/or store. Buy your selections directly from your phone or iPad.
UNIQLOOKS Street style the UNIQLO way. Users can browse or share UNIQLO style, and shop the looks of other users directly through UNIQLOOKS.
This app is for you bargain shoppers. Scan the barcode of any product, and the app will compare pricing on the product at various stores in your area and online.
If you have ever dreamed of being an extreme couponer, this one is for you. iSlick alerts you on deals, sweepstakes and coupons for everything from clothes to cereal.
Catalog Spree allows you to shop several major department stores and mainstream brands, such as Nordstrom, from your iPad without having to set foot in the mall.
