WASHINGTON -- New smartphone apps can help keep track of everything from receipts, prices and even bathrooms at the mall.

Losing receipts for gifts that need to be returned can cost you big bucks. Luckily, there's an app for that.

Lemon organizes pictures of receipts and makes digital copies that can be printed out.

Other apps can help also you get organized for holiday shopping.

The Black Friday app shows advertisements before they're published in the local paper. It also notifies users when new deals become available before shopping holiday.

One feature of Fastmall app helps people find the closest restroom. It includes maps of 1,250 malls across the country.
