Forget all those store ads this holiday shopping season, a local man has created a free app that aims to be your one-stop shop for shopping.

It's called TrackIf.

Creator Doug Berg says TrackIf will monitor countless sites, pages and searches, and alert you where the best deal can be found, the price, and if it's in stock, on sale, or if the price changes.

Experts say, with companies matching prices, 20 percent of all products change prices every day on major shopping sites. Using a price tracking tool is the only way consumers could fully and successfully monitor and take advantage of these deals.

Berg says 60 percent of us will use mobile devices to help us shop this year. Experts say that's a 17 percent increase since last year.
