Shopzy Aims to Be the Guide for all Aspiring Mall Rats [App Review]

Shopzy-logoIf you’re a mall rat, you probably know the ins and outs of your favorite mall like the back of your hand. But in case you go to a new one you probably will be a little lost.

Shopzy an Android app from Cumulation, hopes to help you checkout happenings at your favorite malls in a city. The app lets you explore stores, offers and event details of a mall all in one place.

While the app is simple to use, it does miss a few features that we would have loved to see. The app has only a few malls from Bangalore and Ahmedabad at present.

The app does offer a complete listing of stores in a mall but unfortunately leaves out the listings of food places in a few malls. For a foodie like me, this is a must. The categorization of the stores is superb and one can easily find what one is looking for. It would have been better if there was a more detailed description of the stores. While looking at a store listing one can see if there are any offers at the present time.

One can also subscribe to a particular store so that you can be notified of any offer that becomes available at that store.

The app also lists entertainment offerings at a mall but did not have a list of movies currently playing. While this is supposed to be a feature it did not work when we tried it out.

While the app does give the distance and address to a mall, there is no integration of maps something we feel is a must. One of the features we liked the best is the facilities section which listed out where we could find ATMs in the mall.

The app does not have a floor plan of the mall so while it mentions the floor on which a map is present it would be actually difficult to locate the store in the mall.

When we did a Play Store search we did found a couple of other apps like Malls of Bengaluru, Malls and More and itsMALL which have more comprehensive features. All the apps seem to have only a limited number of malls listed so one would actually have to search and see if your favorite mall is there before downloading a particular app.
