Ditch the lines this Black Friday and get a head start on Cyber Monday with Apple’s new Shopping category in the App Store. Yep, the iOS App Store just launched a shiny new category solely for shopping, so now you can get those wish lists checked off straight from your smartphone. The Shopping category features all the hottest e-commerce apps, like Everlane, Target and, of course, the Apple Store.
Furthermore, the Shopping category makes shopping for the peeps in your life even easier with the “Shop for Everything” page, which is broken up into nifty genres like “Shop for Chic” for women’s wear, “Shop for Dapper” for men’s, “Shop for Cozy” for the home and “Shop for Rugged” for the active.
And that’s not even the best part. We’re talkin’ deals! A whole bunch of the apps currently offered in the Shopping category have some hot new deals and steals for launch week only (that’s November 5 through November 12). Everlane is offering a surprise gift if you order something through their app this week. GILT is giving early access to their sales to app users. REI is offering a $20 coupon for app users who spend $100 or more.
Imagine getting all your holiday shopping done early AND at a discount. Your friends will be so impressed.
