There’s an App for That.
Navigating local malls just got easier.
As malls continue to get bigger and better, navigating them continues to get harder. If you can find a store directory, good luck figuring out where you are on the map and how to get to your destination.
Las Vegans who frequent the Forum Shops at Caesars and Fashion Show mall — and have an iPhone — can mark this off their list of frustrations. And, they have Sam Feuer, CEO of MindSmack, to thank. When he and his wife were shopping at one of their local malls one day, he listened to her frustrations about getting from point A to point B and replied with a mall navigation application for the iPhone called FastMall.
If you’re at Prada at the Forum Shops and need to find out the fastest way to get to Gucci, the app will guide you every step of the way. Users who are wheelchair-bound or pushing a stroller will find elevator-only directions. When a bathroom trip is necessary, just shake your phone for directions from wherever you’re standing. There’s also a section for reviews of stores, restaurants and restrooms. The 2.0 version uses Google Maps to locate your car in the parking lot and also has a space for the FastMall community.
