It’s already November, which means that the deadline to finish off holiday shopping lists is fast approaching. ShopSavvy almost always lands on lists of recommended apps for shopaholics, and that reputation is well deserved. Primarily a bar code-scanning app, ShopSavvy has become a secret weapon of sorts for bargain hunters, thanks to its extensive database of prices and sales. Plus, its mapping features can help shoppers weigh whether it’s worth it to run to another store. Combined with options that let you make personalized lists, get equally personal suggestions and share deals with friends, ShopSavvy is an app to add this holiday season. Free, for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.

Stack Rabbit: Hop in to this engaging puzzle

Disney’s burning up the App Store again with Stack Rabbit, a puzzle game that puts players on the side of Ben, a bunny with a mandate to collect enough vegetables to feed his hungry nephews and nieces. Stack Rabbit offers plenty of fun and challenging puzzles that require players to think fast and critically about the best way to scoop up the right veggies. And all before waking up Max, a not-so-friendly dog that can keep Ben from his goal. The app is free to play, but parents should note that there are some optional paid add-ons. Players may want to wait a bit before downloading; the app was a bit prone to crashes, although that’s likely something developers will be able to fix over time. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
