Gift-buying season has arrived, and you might as well save some money while you're at it. Plenty of apps can help make you a smarter shopper.
It may seem obvious, but the Amazon app is an excellent tool to have on your phone as you peruse the offerings at your local mall.
The app's product pages can provide information about an item that you may not learn from an in-store display, and if you prefer to order the item from Amazon instead of buying in the store, the app has a built-in product-recognition system. Simply hold the item in front of your phone's camera and the app will show Amazon search results that match the product.
