Save Time and Money with These 4 Top Shopping Apps
If you’ve seen any of the “Black Friday” videos of people trampling each other to save a couple of bucks … you know there’s got to be a better way to shop.
As a public service, we’d like to share 4 great apps for shopping in St. Louis. You can navigate the aisles and survive the Holiday season while becoming the power Ninja Shopper you were destined to be!
The phone rang with the dreaded message, “Honey would you mind dropping by the grocery store on your way home to pick up some mini-marsh-mellows?” You dig deep to sound positive and willing over the phone, even though deep inside you picture yourself wandering aimlessly up and down the aisles trying to locate your assigned treasure.
However, being the shopping warrior you are, you enter the store and pull out your
Ninja Sword smartphone and activate Aisle411. Aisle 411, developed by a local company, appears on your screen, within seconds locates what store you are in then directs you to the exact location of the mini-marsh mellows. Problem solved!

2. FastMalls – Never Get Lost in a Mall Again
You’ve seen the look before. Vacant eyes staring out into space, faces reflecting a sense of aimlessness, walking like a zombies lost somewhere between the vast wastelands of Banana Republic and the Gap. Toddlers doing their ritualistic dance to the overactive bladder gods while beleaguered parents desperately search for the nearest bathroom of refuge …all tragically … lost in a mall!
This could have been easily avoided if they had only downloaded FastMall to their phone! Besides showing you the location of all of the stores Fastmall will show your exact location and guide you to the store of your destination. In addition, if you simply shake the phone (not your kid) it will show you the location of the nearest bathroom! Don’t go to the mall without FastMall !
