GPS Me to the Mall

In airports and malls, Point Inside venue maps show you the way to go.

Life coaches and happiness experts always say it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.


When you have 5 minutes to catch a connecting flight and your gate is in another terminal, or when you have 10 minutes to locate an obscure boutique in an unfamiliar mall to get that camel leather bomber sold out everywhere else, fugheddabout the journey – just get us there, asap.

In times like these, it helps to have a guide – in the form of a digital map, showing you exactly where you are and pointing you in the direction of where you need to be. Say hello to Point Inside, the map app.

Download this free location-based guide for instant access to layouts for over 1,000 domestic malls and 100 airports worldwide. Your current location is marked by a little green orb. Pull up a full blueprint for a birds-eye view of your current environs. Or, filter by what you’re really looking for: a store, a restaurant, those always-elusive ATMs, plus restrooms, parking, elevators, and gates. Not only will Point Inside highlight the best route for you to take, it will also list insider offers and current deals being offered by nearby retailers.

Until the the beta release of the Meaning of Life App, this ditty for a few of life’s major attractions will have to do.
