Have you ever snapped a photo of an item you found while shopping to remember it or send to a friend? What about when trying on clothes in a dressing room? If you have, you're not alone. While the majority of shoppers aren't necessarily using their smartphones while they're shopping, it's part of a growing trend. According to a recent survey, 19 percent of Americans will use their mobile devices while shopping this holiday season, and the number is twice as high for younger consumers. Thirty-nine percent of shoppers ages 18 to 29 say they'll use their phones to find stores, sales, and products they're looking to buy.
It seemed this year there were a ton of new shopping sites and apps to get us through the holiday season. Do you take advantage of them on your phone? Or do you use your phone in another way while shopping?
