If you want to avoid the chaos and commotion of Black Friday, you can finish all your holiday shopping on Cyber Monday, and right from the comfort of your iPhone and iPad . All you need are the best iPhone apps and best iPad apps for online shopping. From making lists, to price comparisons, to getting the deal, to tracking the package, they're your key to a successful Cyber Monday!
The Christmas List
One of the first things many of us do before starting our shopping is to figure out what we want to get people, or at the very list, form a list of ideas. The Christmas List lets you not only gather ideas, but set budgets for individual people and then track what you're getting for them and what you still have left to get. You can even add photos to gifts and see a detailed breakdown of your progress as you go.
If you need help getting organized before tackling any shopping, get The Christmas List for iPhone.
RetailMeNot houses one of the largest collections of coupons in app form. Just search for a retailer or add your favorites and RetailMeNot can show you what kind of deals are available right then. While some of the deals are in-store only, I've found that most retailers offer more online deals than they do in-store. This makes RetailMeNot a perfect app for Cyber Monday shoppers everywhere.
For coupon codes to your favorite stores are that good online in most instances, be sure to give RetailMeNot for iPhone a try.
Cyber Monday 2014 from BuyVia focuses on scouring the web for the best deals possible both on the web and locally. You can view coupons, search for specific stores, and even save your preferences and alerts to your account. My favorite feature of BuyVia is its ability to alert you of price drops on things, which makes for a great money saving companion on Cyber Monday. My only irritation is that the resolution isn't scaled properly even for iPhone 5, despite other updates being made, and at this point there's not much excuse for that. Luckily the app has enough useful features that most people will be able to look past that.
For alerts on a wide variety of items in terms of price drops, check out Cyber Monday 2014 from BuyVia on both iPhone and iPad.
Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world so it only makes sense that many of us will be using them to buy gifts for loved ones. Since Amazon sells a variety of products from millions of different retailers, you'd be hard pressed not to find what you're looking for on sale this coming Cyber Monday. And since Amazon officially supports Apple Pay now, buying items online really couldn't get any easier.
For the best prices and the widest variety of merchandise available anywhere, be sure to check the Amazon app for iPhone and iPad.
Since Cyber Monday is all about shopping online, you'll need a good way to track all those incoming packages. Deliveries has long been my go-to package tracking app because of the flexibility and ease of adding packages. Copy virtually any order link or number to your clipboard and Deliveries can automatically add it. Deliveries even has a Notification Center widget so you can view your package progress in just a swipe, as well as send you push notifications for any change in status.
For worry free package tracking this holiday season, look no further than Deliveries for iPhone and iPad.
