SM Megamall, North EDSA, and Mall of Asia are currently the top 3 largest shopping destinations in the Philippines. So naturally, one can easily get lost when you’re inside these malls. While I was doing some last-minute shopping last week for my friend’s wedding, I saw an ad at the SM North EDSA entrance saying the company has released a mobile app. Curious how it works, I downloaded it and was immediately impressed.
I cannot easily identify my left from my right, that’s how bad my sense of direction is. So whenever I go to places as big as a stadium, I always rely on maps. I frequently use the Location Guide malls have by the entrance doors but more often than not they’re inoperable. As a result, I end up looking for the store myself and getting lost in the process. Luckily, the new SM Mobile App has a built-in store finder which allows you to find your favorite stores in each branch. To use the app, however, it is important that you register first.
Upon signing up, you will be immediately directed to the feed which updates you of the latest events in your chosen branch. As for me, the nearest branch is North EDSA so I chose that. Then four categories popped up which are Shopping, Dining, Entertainment, and Services. To test it out, I chose two stores that I frequent. For shopping I looked for Aldo’s location:
Then I tapped Services and searched for The Brow Studio:
Yep, looks legit. With this mobile app, I no longer have to memorize how many left and right turns I have to take before finding my destination–I now have the map in my hands! It’s convenient and saves you a lot of time.
Aside from that, you can also build your own profile and get surprise discounts! Today I got this:
If you have a car, parking is easier with the app. You can easily check if the parking slot you always use at SM is still available. That way, you do not have to go around in circles looking for an ideal spot.
