Finally the App that makes the shopping centre a better place {+ $100 Stocklands giftcard giveway}

Yes, you heard it here first,  there is now and iphone app to make your local shopping centre a better place. That’s right, with one touch of your finger on your phone you can remotely blow up all the broken trolleys, delete over crowding in the ladies bathroom, and dock the pay of any  rude or unhelpful staff members on demand.    Oh the power – it’s beautiful thing :)

Okay, so I’m imagining things again but the good news is Stocklands have introduce and app that really does have the potential to make navigating their centres a better experience.   Though it won’t let you blow things up it is pretty cool and will help you to get around the centre with much less fuss and frustration.   It tells you exactly what shops are available and where each one is located.   It also provides contact information, opening hours and even gives you news and updates from individual shops – including special deals.   One of my favourite features is  the digital shopping list.  Being a list writer from way back this one really makes me smile!   No more lost lists or crazy head scratching trying to remember what I need.    And finally there is a  savings calculator and a spot to leave feedback for Stocklands.    If only it could carry my shopping bags out to the  car it would be close to perfection!

I’ve got to tell you this app has really impressed me and I think other shopping centre chains should be rushing out to emulate Stockland’s brilliant idea.  I know I’ll use this app – especially when visiting  an unfamiliar Stocklands.  My one criticism is that they need to release it on  android too.



You can download the Stocklands App for free right now from your iphone.  As a thank-you for checking out the App Stocklands have given The Truth About Mummy a $100 Stocklands giftcard to giveaway!
