Find way out of mall with iPhone app


A new free iPhone app, Point Inside, solves almost all of my major annoyances with visiting a big mall: knowing where I am, where the store I want to go to is and how to get there.

While malls that could fit inside a shoebox have five directories scattered throughout the small building it seems as if larger malls hide the directory so that shoppers will inevitably spend more time roaming and thus more time buying stuff.

But if you have an iPhone or iPod touch then you'll never have to endure this frustrating experience again.

Point Inside is an app which provides users with a map of the mall that they are visiting, complete with where you are in the mall and a searchable directory of stores that includes hours, phone numbers and specials.
