Gone are the days of sifting through newspaper ads to find a good deal.

Finding bargains on the biggest shopping day of the season is now more convenient than ever, as smartphone apps continue to help consumers personalize their experience.

Fox Business Network’s Adam Shapiro broke down the experts’ top five favorite apps this week on “Fox and Friends First.”

Among this year's picks were:

Ads App, which scans the latest deals as soon as they’re released, and allow users to narrow them down based on their favorite stores;

Slickdeals, which gives out discount coupons before they’re printed and lets users shop straight from the app;

BlackFriday.com, which stores all the latest newspaper ads and gives shoppers the option to filter deals by category and price;

TGI Black Friday, which has been praised for loading ads quickly and keeping tabs on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts;

Brad's Deals, which pushes out live notifications for new ads and allows users to add items to a personal wishlist.
