The Toy Shopping iPhone and iPad app is a good Cyber Monday choice. It grabs toys from online retailers and connects you with the website to purchase. Typical toy categories and age groupings allow you to browse through lists that can be sorted by name, price, keyword, and store. The sorting is managed through a pop-up menu, so you can create relevant searches with ease. The quality of the products and the easy interface with the retailers for purchase makes up for the lackluster visual experience.

For example, when you do a search, the pop-up suggests that you make it a favorite, so that Ebay can notify you when new products become available. The “refine” feature in your search is lengthy, but its integration of on and off buttons for several selections helps you move more swiftly through the process.

The search function has three options–a standard typed search, a bar code scanner, or a picture. Unfortunately, the picture scanner only works for books, CDs, and DVDs, and this is a disappointment. Best Buy has a picture scanner that creates a quick list of comparable products, so Amazon is behind the competition on this feature. The lightening deals section of the app is their Groupon-like, super deep discount for a specific number of products offered . With a couple of touches, you can score an amazing Cyber Monday deal. The Amazon iPhone and iPad app integrates and syncs with your Amazon.com account for efficient check out and order status information. Overall, it’s a great app for mobile shopping.
