Walmart iPhone App: Where It's Like Black Friday Every Day

This app will make you want to do all your shopping at Wally World

If you've ever wanted to see the latest and greatest deals from Wal-Mart with one tap of the finger, now it's possible. The gargantuan discount retailer has just launched its My Holiday app for the iPhone, giving customers a reason to do their entire Christmas shopping from one company.

By opening up the app, you immediately see the current featured sale promotion. If it looks good enough to buy, simply touch the "Stores" icon and you'll see where the nearest Walmart is to your current location. Then you can map the directions and voila!

Or, let's say you're having dinner with your nieces and nephews, and one of them talks about wanting the latest Pokemon game. Just discretely pull out your iPhone, search for the game within the Wal-Mart app, and add it to your "Holiday List" so you can double-check before you buy it at the store. Or better yet, just buy it directly from through the app.

But let's say your nephews are really untalkative. Then you can use the special Gift Finder in the app, which asks you for the recipient's gender, age range, and price range. It'll spit out the best gift ideas for you.

In short, it's a one-stop spot for everything you need to make it a Walmart Christmas. What it can't do is make you actually remember to go shopping after work on Tuesday like your wife told you to. For some reason, that's still a very difficult thing to remember.

Here's the app
