Pack Mall Maps for your next shopping trip!

image

 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. 



Major price drop for the holiday season: Blades of Fury for $1 only!

image



One of the best Street Fighter clones is Blades of Fury (iTunes link) - no wonder I've featured it in my recently-published "Everything you’ll ever need to know about multiplayer games" (and also the paper version of it, which, hopefully, gets published in the newsstand version of iPhone Life). Now, it’s offered for $1 only during the Thanksgiving season. For this price, it’s a steal!

Move your docs with ReaddleDocs

image

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! iPhone and iPod touch accessories

image

 Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, when retailers traditionally make enough money to shift from red ink to black) is almost here so I thought I'd share some iPhone and iPod touch accessory deals you can look forward to.  I've used the Ten One Pogo Stylus and found it useful for many games and utilities.

Vampires Everywhere!

image

 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…

Got Vampire?!
