The World's Largest Resource for the Cart, Kiosk, and Temporary Retail Industry

California — It’s a warm spring day at the Westfield Galleria and you’re thirsty for cold beverage from Starbucks.

A map kiosk is nowhere to be found. What do you do?

If you’re an iPhone user then there is an app that will help you out.

Called FastMall, the app is loaded with turn-by-turn maps of shopping malls across the United States, including the Galleria, the Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights and Sacramento’s Arden Fair Mall.

The app acts as a turn-by-turn guide through a mall, showing the user where restrooms, food courts and stores can be found. The app will even alert you of current sales and promotions mall shops are having.

It will even tell you where you parked your car.

Would such an app be of interest to local mall shoppers?

Roseville resident Krystal Varley said she would use the app.

“There are times when I like to come here and spend a few hours shopping,” she said. “But there are times when I’m on a tight schedule and I need to find something fast. An app like this might help me a lot.”

Sam Feuer, a New York web designer, was shopping with his pregnant wife one day. Walking into a shopping mall, his wife said she had to find the bathrooms.

“We checked for the mall maps and couldn’t find a single kiosk,” he said. “We even asked people who worked at the mall – we still couldn’t get an answer.”
