Mobile Apps for Shopping Malls

Malls, just like many other businesses - besides the regular communication channels - should reach out to their audience through mobile apps as well. Above the basic map, shop list, opening hours content there are several possible other, interactive, two way functions, which could help them to bring in more potential customers - into the mall and into the shops as well.

We've collected some mobile app function ideas for this in this deck - if you want to receive your personalised material, please, let us know.
