Target Corp. is adding new mobile features for the upcoming holiday season. Due to launch next week, Target will offer shoppers access from their mobile phones to checklists, holiday planners, gift and video finders, and holiday-planning text alerts.

On its mobile site,, Target allows shoppers to view, manage and update their TargetLists, which are lists that include items picked out by gift recipients. Later this month, shoppers will be able to access this feature on the Target App for iPhone.
