While most people spend Thanksgiving thinking about the things in their life that they're grateful for, some see it simply as the pre-game before the real holiday: Black Friday. Those who are willing to brave the early morning haze and long lines — warmed by the still-digesting feast in their stomachs — are rewarded with the chance to save (and spend) tons of money at stores of all sorts. But you can't go out unprepared into the shopping wilderness that is Black Friday. Arm yourself with your iOS device and let these eight apps be the compass that guides you happily to ultimate savings.
One of the biggest pieces of overseas news in the wake of the iPhone 5s' launch was the news that Apple's beloved smartphone would at last be carried by NTT DoCoMo, the largest cellular carrier in Japan.

On the off chance that you were doubting that Apple would have a Black Friday event this year, it looks as though your doubts were for naught. As reported by MacRumors, a teaser page popped up on the online Apple Store for Australia, promising a one-day shopping event on November Friday, 29. With that in place, it seems as though it's only a matter of hours before we see a similar announcement for the United States.

The actual profits from year-over-year sales may still be down, but that may change if the good news coming from Apple maintains its trajectory.
