FastMall. Navigating from store to store can be a challenge if the mall is jam-packed. If you're tired of getting lost, use FastMall to find your way around. Load the mall's map on FastMall and the app will give you turn-by-turn directions to bathrooms, stores, and restaurants (without the use of Wi-Fi or GPS). If you use a baby stroller or a wheelchair, you can turn on the "elevator only" feature for easy access. The app also saves the location where you parked, so you don't waste precious shopping time looking for your car if you have to bounce from one mall to the next.
