Can’t bear to page through all those Black Friday inserts from the paper, or search site after site online, to locate the best deals this holiday season? Us either, so we’re all about the apps. While we don’t really intend to be out fighting the crowds on Black Friday (Cyber Monday is sooo much more our speed) if you’re going to brave the insanity, it’ll probably pay to peruse the deals in advance. We haven’t tested all of these, but according to our friends at Appitalism.com, these are the apps to try:
