    Just found this free app on the app store called Mall Rat and thought I'd share a quick review.

    I just have to say that the routing is pretty amazing. The developers claim that its able to route without a data connection so I tried it in airplane mode. Sure enough, it will route to any store or amenity in the mall. You just have to download the mall ahead of time. What I really like about it is the routing interface. No typing! And the maps are pretty clear too. The app needs more content and maps but I think it could be one of the best mall apps out there.

    Anyone else tried it?

    Check it out

    Went the their website and couldn't find the list of supported malls anywhere - how stupid is that? I'm not going to download and install an app just to see if my local malls are supported.

    Agreed. It would have been nice to see what malls they have in my area before I downloaded it. There was a few around me but not the big one I wanted. I sent them an email requesting my mall so hopefully they include it. The app does have a GPS feature to allow you to search for nearby malls around you. Overall, the navigation feature is the best from all the mall apps I've tried.
