With gifts to buy and places to go, the last thing you want to do during the holiday season is lose precious minutes trying to hunt down a restroom at the local mall.

FastMall has maps and allows interactive navigation at more then 1,250 malls across the country, and they are adding updates and new locations all the time.

In addition to hunting down the location of the nearest restroom, FastMall helps you pick the quickest route to your favorite store. You can even tell it to find the fastest route using elevators if you’re navigating the holiday crowds with a stroller.

Since signal strength can be a problem inside stores, FastMall downloads the map to the mobile phone as long as the user remains logged in. This way the map is always there to be a guide.

If you record your favorite stores, the app will send you special deals that you can take advantage of while you’re at the mall.

And don’t worry about losing your car in the parking lot. FastMall allows you to use GPS and audio recording to hunt it down.
