Mall Maps is a definite keeper on my iPhone!
This app contains more than 1,000 malls, shopping centers and plazas in all 50 states. You can locate malls by browsing your current location (GPS) or by browsing a list of states. Alternatively, you can input the zip code of the area you are planning to visit.
The app displays the malls in your selected location, as well as a store list and floor plan for each selected mall.
You can even get directions to the mall by selecting "Get directions," which provides directions to the mall on Google Maps.
If you're hitting the stores on Black Friday but are in need of gift ideas, you might try the free Hey Santa app, which has over 2,000 gift suggestions based on your budget and the recipient's taste and age. There are 15 different combined settings for gift suggestions. Also check out Christmas Gifts List ($0.99), which no only helps you manage your list but also has a built-in budgeting feature.
When I travel, I need a way to move documents back and forth from my computer to my clients. Finally, I've found an application that meets that need — ReaddleDocs.
With ReaddleDocs, I can:
• Transfer files with or without WiFi (I can use my 3G network)
• Read TXT, PDF, Word, Excel, HTML, and Powerpoint documents
• Password protect my documents
Black Friday is coming.
Use these iPhone tips to have the edge on all the other shoppers.
There's an app for everything, including Thanksgiving. MacWorld reviews eight of the apps, ranging from recipes to a TurkeyTimer. Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes ($1.99) gets the highest rating — four mice on a five-mouse scale. Each of the 60 recipes includes a picture of the dish, description, list of ingredients, and steps for preparing. You can mark favorites, and automatically generate a shopping list.

This is one of those iPhone apps that looks simple on the surface, but is potentially useful beyond what you might expect. Yes, the app store is chock full of picture manipulation apps, but Peter Facinelli’s (one of the hit Twilight series movie stars) Vampire Transformer (by 211me.com) provides some clever pix editing tools, a good menu system, and adds social network sharing to the mix. It was indeed fun turning my wife into a vampiress...and a hot one, too if I do say so…

It's kind of silly, but fun to see that it actually works. App is $0.99, but the reviews say that it doesn't work that well.
