5 apps that would make holiday shopping a whole lot better

If there are 5 apps I could have RIGHT NOW, I have to say I’m wondering why no one has invented :

1. The Go-Go Gadget Reindeer App

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the “go go gadget”, first of all, take a trip back to memory lane to rediscover Inspector Gadget, and then imagine a reindeer sled popping out of your hat and flying all of those presents to all of your family and friends…especially those that are overseas. I give you :

Inspector Santa

BONUS : you don’t have to figure out how to pile up 4 large bags and an overstuffed backpack onto the back of a scooter just to get them home.

2. The Invisibility Cloak

There  are multiple benefits to all of these, but for this one it mainly involves no longer waiting in lines to :

  • try clothes on — you can share and they’ll never even know
  • buy stuff (handy-dandily pulling it off at the last moment when you actually get up to the cash register)
  • use the facilities (sorry, but true..especially for girls)
  • buy yourself some hot wine and cannelés
  • buy Christmas cards; postage stamps, or a box to fit 80 lbs of Christmas gifts

3. A virtual reality add-a-Like-to-anything app

We already have the technology to identify objects using virtual technology à la Google Goggles, how much harder can it be to take that, mix in a Facebook Connect, and BAM I have already liked my sriracha sauce, so family can please send me more for Christmas. This could also be integrated into shopping sites, obviously any type of social media, you could receive your family’s “like” lists to make holiday shopping a whole lot easier (Anna- just to make sure – you wanted the sausage baster or the duck thermometer?..)

4. Lose-10-pounds-in-2-days app

I figure, if it worked for the Kardashian sisters, it can work for an app…ESPECIALLY around holiday times when who doesn’t want to indulge in a little extra fois grois or apple pie and be able to download an app that radio-waves your extra jiggle away?..

5. Captain Planet app

This may seem like the m&m that isn’t quite the same color as the bunch, but think about it. Santa only gives presents to children that are good. And you have most likely been naughty seeing as you’re probably an adult. Clean up the earth a little bit this year and maybe Santa will leave you lots of nice presents

Disclaimer : I actually am not a fan of the gift-giving part of Christmas, and yes that pertains to the “getting” side. Especially being so far from home I’d rather just have my family come visit me than send me things. Things come and go. People stay.

That being said, what apps would make your life easier? (Real ones are welcome, too 😉 )
