Undoubtedly, ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Thanksgiving Day’ showed off great beginning of Christmas 2012 and holiday shopping season. Of course, online retailers succeeded to entice significant number of users by touting amazing discounts and offers on Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day. Besides, bricks-and-mortar retailers also succeeded to leverage over the holiday shopping season, and this is the reason why every major of retailers offers mobile application this holiday season to better help to customers.

With the mobile application, in-store consumers are able to enhance their shopping experiences by adding items to their cart, finding clearance items, browsing a store catalog, and more importantly, they can share special offers with their friends.

Interestingly, this holiday season, online retailers are offering mobile applications for savvy shoppers to use in-store. Now, Amazon’s ‘Price Check’ and Ebay’s ‘Redlaser’ shopping applications are allowing customers to compare prices, see product reviews and even buy online without going  through frighting check out lines.
