Save Shopping Time with Holiday Apps

This holiday season, save yourself time and avoid the crowded malls by putting your fingers and mobile devices to work. A couple of new shopping apps will help you find the perfect present for even the hardest to shop for person on your list.
This year, the way the holidays fall on the calendar, there are 6 fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Save yourself time and avoid the crowded malls by putting your fingers and mobile devices to work. A couple of new shopping apps will help you find the perfect present for even the hardest to shop for person on your list.

If you're short on shopping time, but high on style, downloading the free iPhone app, Bond, is a must. From this app, you can peruse a well curated collection of gifts, categorized by price point. Under $50, you'll find candles and pocket squares. Or flick through the splurge category and pick up a leather skateboard or a set of cufflinks. Sync the app with your calendar, birthdays and contacts and set reminders so you never forget to send a gift on time. But what really sets this app apart from hundreds of other shopping apps is the ability to send a handwritten note with your purchase.

Another great, free shopping app that offers a wide variety of gifts is from Fab.com. The app offers all the same design-oriented products that you'll find on the website, but now accessible on the go. New products and categories are added daily.

Finally, keep track of your gift shopping with the $2.99 app, "Gift Plan." List your family and friends, keep track of ideas and purchases and never be late on sending that special gift.
