    Thanks again for ignoring windows phone. It’s the type of biased and not well researched reporting I’ve come to expect from Mr. Soper. There are multiple good windows phone deal finding apps, I should know, I wrote one of them. Mr. Soper would rather pretend WP doesn’t exist than report on the apps for the OS developed locally by one of the areas largest employers.

      Hi Ryan G.,

      Based on my research, these were the most popular apps related to Black Friday, and quite frankly, just about all of them were not available on Windows Phone.

      I did just add RedLaser’s Windows Phone app, as well as one Black Friday Deals app I found for Windows Phone.

      Thanks for reading.
