Smartphones are the number one selling electronics device this year.
If you have a smartphone or are thinking of getting one in the near future, you are going to want to download more than just Angry Birds.
We have some must-have money-saving apps you should have as well.
Want to save at the mall? How about the grocery store or on your holiday gifts? There's an app for that.
We talked to budget-watching college students to come up with some must-have money-saving apps.
Molly McGhee gives us app number one: Your favorite store.
"I have apps from several stores in the mall and they notify you when they have sales or deals," said McGhee.
Target's app, with daily deals and an in-store barcode price checker.
Michelle Miranda prefers the Starbucks app. It lets you pay with a swipe of your phone. You can even pre-order your cup of Joe.
This time of year, we are all looking for sales.
So, must-have app number two is Deal News, top-rated by PC World Magazine.
Must-have app number three: Sale Locator, which lists sales near you, showing them on a map.
To accompany Sale Locator, you'll want a price comparison app.
So our fourth must-have is Red Laser, a favorite of student Kayla Puckett and her friends.
"You can kind of scan the barcodes if you are shopping and kind of compare prices of that," said Puckett.
Coupon Blogger Andrea Deckard, of TheSavingsLifestyle.com, likes an alternate comparison app, Shop Savvy, our number five app.
"If you scan the bar code it tells you the prices at each retailer," said Deckard.
Tired of carrying all those shopper reward cards? Then download app number six: Key Ring, which puts them all on your smartphone.
The number seven must-have app: Groupon. No further explanation needed.
Number eight: Coupon Sherpa, which finds coupons for the store you are in.
Most of these apps are either free or cost less than $2.
You can find all these apps in the iTunes Store or Android Marketplace.
That way you don't waste your money.
