MindSmack has released an update to FastMall, its interactive mall navigation and shopping application, adding offline access and barcode-based price comparisons. FastMall provides maps and information on the largest shopping malls in the U.S., the U.K., Canada and France to help users easily find stores and other amenities such as restrooms and elevators while inside the mall. FastMall 3.0 now integrates with ShopSavvy to allow users to scan product bar codes for online price comparisons and provide completely offline access to all interactive mall maps, including support for turn-by-turn navigation within a mall. The update also boasts enhanced speed and performance with a redesigned user interface including map dock icons to provide quicker access to important feature and a new category and keyword search feature to help find stores. FastMall 3.0 requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
