LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - All seasoned Black Friday shoppers know the game is all about strategy. They map out where to go and when get into stores, and now, they're game plan has gotten a little easier thanks to a couple of Black Friday Apps.
Black Friday Ads 2012 is an app that brings all of the Black Friday ads together into one place. The app updates as stores release their ads, and you can even search by category.
"If you're looking for items in particular, just insert that into this app, and it shows you where to find it," said Ginger Daril, with Verizon Wireless.
Worried about losing your car in all the shopping madness? Never fear! There's an app for that, too. Car Matey comes to the rescue. The pirate themed app allows you to "Drop Anchor" when you park your car, and when you're ready to return, all you do is hit "Find Vessel." Yarr!!
Do you have someone who is hard to shop for, or are you completely stumped as to what you should get for someone? Check out iGrill. While it may not be an app to help out on streamlining your shopping strategy, it has everything to do with a smart phone and would be a perfect present for one of your gift recipients.
iGrill is a thermometer that you can stick into the dish you are cooking, and when the meat reaches it's perfect temperature, the iGrill sends a message to the user's phone. Nifty, huh?
What's the hot gaming device of the season? The MOGA gaming system. It's a controller that hooks onto your Android phone or tablet, and it works off of Bluetooth, which makes it the perfect gift for your gaming friend, or child.
