Getting worse by the day
As a road warrior, I sometimes end up in airports or shopping malls for the first time more often than I would like. PI used to be an incredible app to help me figure out where I was and where I needed to go for the best airport lounge, to pick up a shirt or underwear in a pinch, or to get a good meal after a long day. I don't know what the developers are thinking, but with each new iteration it is getting harder and harder to understand and to use.
For example, there is now a little navigation wheel at the bottom that in theory allows you to move between terminals and floors. However, it's spring loaded so you have to be insanely accurate or it won't move where you want it to, but will "bounce back" to a random location.
Also, unless you know where something is, you cannot find it. Assume that you are at the San Francisco AIrport, have the wheel set to the second floor of Terminal 1 and you search for the United Club. The map will point to the right place (Concourse F), but unless you know that Concourse F is in T3, you're screwed because the wheel still says T1, second floor. The wheel should move to point to the same place as the map so that you have some idea of where you need to go.
Point Inside Shopping and Travel
Point Inside is a must have for anybody who shops and travels often. From the app users can search and get a map of shopping malls, businesses and locations of all types. What separates this application from others is that you can find the precise location of a place, look up the amenities of a place and even use the app as a GPS guide pinpointing where you are in a location. The interactive maps provided are designed for quick and easy touch allowing you to tap on a place and find out more information. Users can do a directory search of all types of places listed in the U.S. This is one of the most essential apps to have and is helpful to have when just wanting to scope out the details of a location.
I love this app! I avoid malls whenever possible, prefer to shop small businesses, so barely know the layout of the mall closest to me. With this app, I can find the store I'm looking for in advance so I know which side to park on and avoid walking the full length with potentially heavy bags. Very helpful, even more so in unfamiliar cities.
