Yes it’s that time of year again. That time of year that we give thanks on Thursday and some are willing to trample others to save a few bucks on Friday. Honestly I try to avoid going out on Black Friday as much as possible. However, I enjoy a good deal as much as the next person. So rather than try to comb through the newspaper on Thanksgiving over rely on emails from businesses I’ve done business with in the past, I love having all the best deals in the palm of my hand. You could probably get by with any of these Black Friday Apps, but I thought I’d share my pick for the 3 best ones based on the amount of deals they have, ease of use and feature set.
Black Friday 2013 Ads App
This App is for iPhone and iPod touch only and doesn’t have an iPad version. It’s also not the prettiest of the bunch. It’s mostly text based, but that keeps the app running fast and lets you easily see exactly what you want with out too many graphics. The 1st screen is a news screen that is constantly updated with any late breaking deals. Once you go to the Stores tab you can drill down on a particular store and see the actual ads for given products or deals. You can also search deals by category instead of going store by store which is nice. Once you find the deals you want you can add them to a shopping list right in the app. You can also enter an email address if you like to be alerted for late breaking deals.

Black Friday Shopping
This app is much more visual. You’ll see the actual store ads right off the bat as well as store logos. You can browse by ads, by stores or by deals. There’s a news section and a search feature. Also this is a Universal App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Not really any other bells and whistles. Just a clean UI and fast loading.

TGI Black Friday
This is also a Universal App for iPhone, iPod touch and IPad. Like the 1st App TGI Black Friday allows you to browse by featured deals, stores or categories and you can add deals to a list. However, it’s more visually appealing than the 1st one. It has a few nice touches such as store open times (even the ones that will be open Thanksgiving – sheesh). Of the 3 I kinda like this one best. Again you can’t go wrong with any of them as they operate as advertised, but I really like the feel of this one.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
Once Instagram opened the doors to allow videos to be uploaded that weren’t recorded by the Instagram App, then App Developers started making Apps to allow you to composite multiple photos or videos together to share on Instagram as videos. One of the ones I’m really liking now for stills is Frametastic. This App, like many other apps allows you to put two or more photos together. However, unlike all the other picture stitching apps, this one will create an animation that zooms into each frame full size. Then you can save it as a video and share it on Instagram or any other social media site.
The process starts selecting the layout you want and then populating the layout with the photos of your choice. If you want to make a video you will need to do the in-app purchase of $1.99. So while the app is technically free, you will need to pay the $1.99 fee to unlock the video slideshow feature.
Here’s a sample video that I uploaded to Vimeo directly form the App.

It’s not secret that there is a fascination with all things zombies. The Walking Dead is back for another season on AMC and they have updated their Dead Yourself App so that you can turn yourself into a “walker”. The App allows you to take a photo or use an existing photo. From there you can change your eyes, mouth and add other gory items to complete your zombie look. I’m a fan of Walking Dead and this app has been awesome to turn my closest friends into walkers. You can chose between the New Season 4 looks or the Classic Season 3 looks. Once you have your new look complete, you can then share it via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Email and SMS. You can also save it to the Camera Roll. While the App is Free, it will put a Walking Dead watermark on the bottom of the photo. There’s enough of a variety of eyes, mouths, and other accents to make your look really custom.
