Plotting Out Black Friday Attack Plan? Yeah, There's An App For That

Black Friday. It's a name that was once only known by savvy shoppers who scoured the Internet for deals, but now it's a household holiday in America. Everyone from tweens to grandmothers will be waking up early on the day after Thanksgiving in order to fight the crowds and attempt to snag those too-good-to-be-true deals that happen just once per year.

As would be expected at a time such as this, a company has now come forward with an iPhone application that can help shoppers plan out their attack route and score the best deals. MEDL Mobile has just introduced Mall Maps, an iPhone app provides its user with a comprehensive database of malls, shopping centers and plazas across the US.

When fired up, it utilizes the internal GPS chip to locate where you are, or if you'd rather, you can search by city/state, zip code and even a list of all 50 states. The app even includes store listings and actual floor plans for malls all across the country, so you really can plan out a route to take beforehand rather than just running around wildly. It's available now for $2.99, which seems like a small price to pay for the shortest route to the bargains you crave.
