Being inside an American mall is like being in a labyrinth–it’s no wonder that there are directories posted all over the place. But directories aren’t always in front of you, and searching for them can be a scavenger hunt as well…here comes Point Inside’s Mall & Shopping Center Maps iPhone app to the rescue. It’s an Indoor Smart Map for malls and a concierge, all in one. Just launch the app and let the GPS find your location, then search for a venue (second tab): you can search through all the venues they’ve mapped, or just the ones near you (recommended). Tapping on the mall you want not only brings up the map of its stores and dining (pinch zoom to adjust the view), but also gives you access to information such as events or promotions, or even where to find the bathroom or an ATM. Point Inside also has store information, such as hours and phone numbers. It even gives you an option to input your parking space level or number, just in case you forget it after hours of walking through a mall.
Point Inside has hundreds of American malls mapped, and no network connection is needed for downloaded maps. Such information is a goldmine in your hands: no need to go looking for a needle in a haystack anymore, just worry about shopping and getting the best deals. Tap carefully, though, because mall stores are built cramped and close to one another, and that means your margin of error while selecting a store’s information or another store on the map is small. And, this iPhone app is at the best price possible: free.
