    Black Friday

    by FatWallet, Inc.

    Fatwallet has given their Black Friday app a major facelift this year. Some highlights of their updates include product images and more sorting options such as "just added." The only downside of this app is it focuses on major chain stores like Macy's and Kmart, though it has added more stores than previous years. For a greater variety of stores and localized deals, you'll have to go somewhere else to find them.

    Black Friday 2015 Ads App -

    by Sazze, Inc.

    The app is a very well organized app that includes Black Friday news, deals by stores, deals by categories, and a shopping list. The stores included in this app seem to be more major chains than local stores so if you need a bigger variety this may not be the app for you. The interface isn't as welcoming or user-friendly as some of the others, but it has a certain sleek look to it that some will prefer. This is not the app for everyone, but the people that it attracts will love it.

    Black Friday by BradsDeals

    by Shop Smart Inc.

    This one contains ad scans, a tab that lets you view current deals, and another tab that presents you with news pertaining to Black Friday ads. You are also able to save deals and those will later show up in the Saved tab. Its catalog of deals isn't very descriptive at all and the deals aren't organized, but if you're looking for a general overview of deals, it's worth a gander.

    Shopular Coupons, Weekly Ads & Shopping Mall Deals

    by AirCrunch Inc.

    Coupons App by Shopular is a beautiful app, but because it is technically a coupon app and doesn't cater to Black Friday deals in particular, it finds itself in the decent category. With this app, you can see when a certain store has a promo such as a certain percentage off.

    by, Inc.

    Black Friday App is just that, a Black Friday app. You can browse deals by categories or stores, and even search through them. You can also save deals, but the lack of stores included in this app is disappointing, putting it at the bottom of the list when compared to other Black Friday apps.
