Getting ready for the holiday shopping season? Hit our Fresh Apps list for another cool barcode scanner that’ll help you find the best deals by comparing stores’ prices. We’ve also got a helpful new camera app, and one that gathers the latest viral videos right on your phone. Read all about them below.

LetShop (iPhone) $1.99

Here’s another handy barcode scanner to help you as you prepare for holiday shopping. Scan a product with LetShop and the app will bring up information about the item, as well as a price history chart to help you figure out if you’re getting a deal, or ripped off.

After scanning a product at a store, you can subscribe to alerts to let you know when prices drop, and compare prices from various different major retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon.com, Walmart and Target. And you can always search keywords if scanning a barcode is out of the question.

dotfunc(camera) (iPhone) $4.99

This camera app makes photography, editing and photo manipulation easier by automatically correcting your images’ perspective and level.

In addition to making sure your shots aren’t tilted (unless you want them to be), you can adjust various settings like hue and color, and set customized presets of film, filters, and flash that can be save and called up later. Amateur iPhone photographers will find a lot of useful customization and tools here.

Viral (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Viral is an app with a single, great idea behind it — it constantly updates a flow of interesting, popular viral videos and sends them to your iPhone. The app is basically the perfect way to keep up on the latest Internet memes, and you don’t even need to fire up your computer to do so.

Even better, Viral lets you be the bearer of new videos to your social network. Use the app’s Facebook and Twitter connectivity to share videos with everyone you know, helping to create Internet memes of your own. Hilarious videos await in this app, and it’s pretty cheap to boot.
