If you’re looking for a Black Friday app to have on your smartphone while you’re out conquering all those Black Friday deals, here is the best one to use.
Black Friday is just days away, and if you haven’t already started planning your shopping trips, now is the time to do so. If you’re looking into Black Friday apps to make your shopping experience smoother and less stressful, there are a lot of choices to choose from.
The thing is, most Black Friday apps are all the same. They all let you see the deals for every store and most offer some kind of planning function where you can star certain ads and deals. This is why it’s important not just to find any Black Friday app, but to find the best one.
BlackFriday.fm’s app is arguably the best Black Friday app to use. It’s a barebones app and doesn’t have the flash and pizazz of other Black Friday apps I’ve played around with, but that’s a good thing, as it makes the app really easy to use.
The best part about the app is that it’s really easy to navigate around and everything is pretty self-explanatory, but here’s a better look into what the app can do.
Best Black Friday App: BlackFriday.fm
The BlackFriday.fm app is available for iOS and Android devices for free. When you open the app, it features four tabs down at the bottom that consist of News, Stores, Categories, and Shopping List.
The News tab consists of any new information on Black Friday deals as they roll in, and you can even enable push notifications so that you get alerted whenever a news item comes in.
The Stores tab gives you a complete list of all the stores that are running Black Friday deals, with a number in parentheses that tell you how many deals are at each store. Tapping on a store will provide you with more info about the deals at that particular store, as well as when the store opens for Black Friday, and you can browse those deals by category and even view the ad scan in its entirety.
The Categories tab lists all of the categories that currently have Black Friday deals, and tapping on one will show you all the deals available at all the stores for that particular product category. And of course, you can search for specific deals and products from within the app as well.
Lastly, the Shopping List tab is essentially the place where all of your saved deals show up in a list, allowing you to quickly browse any of your favorite deals that you’ve saved. To add an item to your Shopping List, just tap on any deal to open up more info about it, and there will be a button towards the bottom that says Add to Shopping List. Once you have your list compiled, you can use it as a reference while you’re out shopping and even share it with friends or family so they know what you’re looking for.
Probably one of the coolest features that I like about the app is that you can view the ad scan and if a certain deal interests you, you can click on the item right in the ad scan and be taken to a dedicated page for that particular deal.
