Back to school shopping with Smartphones

Posted: Updated:

A recent Nielsen survey showed 79% of U.S. Smartphone owners have used their cell for shopping. Now many are using some apps to make sure they are getting the best deals when it comes to back to school shopping.

Verizon Wireless says Smartphones are quickly becoming the tool of choice for mobile moms who want to make the most of their back-to-school budgets. They say many of them are using their phone to locate stores, check prices, and research items before buying them. Other apps available can scan barcodes to find the best price, calculate final sale prices after applying certain discounts, and even find your car after a long day of shopping.

A lot of these apps are free and available on Apple and Android devices.
