New apps help shoppers navigate holiday crunch

With Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the December holidays quickly approaching, Bronx residents can get a step up on the holiday crunch with some new apps.

Shoppers can use their smartphones to manage their holiday budgets, and even find the best deals and steals. Early birds can download an app specially tailored for all that Black Friday has to offer.

Holiday travelers can also organize and book their trips straight from their phones, whether hitting the road, rails or skies with apps such as TripIt.
