FastMall says: Sam Feuer President/CEO http://www.MindSmack.com http://www.MindSmack.tv http://www.FastMall.com Serial Investor, Entrepreneur since 1999 I have decided to go very broad and select the 5 greatest iPhone applications on the market today based on usefulness, quality and overall appeal to the masses needs.
FastMall's picks
  1. Shazam
    Shazam Perhaps the coolest iPhone app to date from an audio standpoint. To be able to place the phone near a speaker and identify the track, then let you buy it makes anyone feel like a magician. Everyone who has an iPhone should use shazam.
  2. BeejiveIM with Push
    BeejiveIM with Push Having 500+ contacts on various IM platforms, BeeJive allows me to be mobile and interact with everyone like I was sitting behind my desk. Its an invaluable tool and well worth the price.
  3. FastMall - Shopping Malls, Community & Interactive Maps
    FastMall - Shopping Malls, Community & Interactive Maps My wife had this idea to be able to locate the nearest restroom at the mall because whenever we she had tried, just about always failed at getting there quickly enough that it wasnt inconvenient. FastMall goes a step further then just data with an interactive map that lets you shake your iphone when the map first loads and drops restrooms from the sky onto your mall map. This displays the restroom location, then you tap on the restroom icon and choose take me there. The app guides you step by step to get to the restroom. Beyond that it takes you from store to restaurant to the movies all using turn by turn directions. Have a baby stroller? Use a wheelchair? You can tap the elevators only button and recalculate your trip inside a multilevel mall to be taken to your destination. Get a deal on your favorite brand, remember where you parked your car and even add reviews and data to the FastMall experience. This is not just a simple iPhone application, Its an entire experience and platform that is continually growing to make everyone who goes to a mall (and Rodeo Drive) much happier.
  4. Appolicious
    Appolicious I came across the Appolicious site about a month ago and was impressed by its design quality and overall idea/experience. It makes great sense to have a community like this to share the best apps around that you may otherwise never have thought to try or buy. I highly recommend appolicious to everyone. Its a quality asset.
  5. Twitter
    Twitter Tweetie 2 is the most excellent twitter iphone application created so far. It allows you to do so many things that are incredible. Twitter should take some time and review this application and enhance their own service :)

To check in you can simply go to any blue mall menu and tap check in, or on the store detail/mall information page, tap check in and your all set! A future version coming soon we will give you badges and rewards for checking in, look for prizes and lots of other fun to come.
