Six smartphone apps to make shopping easier

Shopping online at retailer websites is convenient and fun, but new apps for tablets and smartphones take it to a whole new level.

 

They make shopping even easier because you can do it not just anytime but also anywhere.

 

More and more retailers are coming out with mobile apps, and shoppers are jumping onboard, according to ShopSmart magazine.

 

Target says that 30 percent of its digital traffic comes from mobile devices, for example, and flash-sale site Zulily reports that almost half of its orders came in via its app during the first three quarters of 2013.

ShopSmart took a close look at some shopping apps that are worth checking out. (They’re all free.)

Diners can specify what kind of deals they want to receive, including "buy a breakfast sandwich, get one free, or $1 Hot 'n Spicy McChicken sandwich" . Users can't order or pay with the McD app.
