Cielo Vista Mall Announces Parking App – These 4 Things Could Use An App Too
One of the worsts things about going to the mall is pulling into the parking lot. Tons of parking spaces and there never seems to be one open that doesn't require a 20-mile hike to the mall entrance. Cielo Vista Mall is taking care of that with the 'MyPark' app that will make parking a breeze. For ten people. Because that's how many parking spaces that will be available with the app.
When you get the app, you can reserve one of ten spaces near Johnny Rockets, Sears, JCPenney, and H&M. I think it's great that you can possibly get a closer parking space with the touch of a button on your smartphone, but here are a couple of things in the mall that could use their own app:
1. No Sample App - Wandering around the mall now that we're heading into the Christmas shopping season is dangerous. You'll be accosted by perfume sprayer and miracle face cream hawkers. This app will let you know where they are so you can shop without having to dodge their samples.
2. Pan Flute App - No, this app doesn't show you where the pan flute dude is, it tells you when he goes on break so you can head to the mall in peace. Pan flute music has been banned in many counties under the Geneva Convention - the mall needs to look into that.
3. Chick-Fil-A App - What's worse than waiting in the drive-thru line at Chick-Fil-A? Waiting in the mall line at Chick-Fil-A. At least in your car you can roll up your windows and blast your music. The only thing you can do in the mall line is people watch, and while that can be amusing, I would rather check my app, grab my order and go.
4. Teenagers App - After eating all that Chick-Fil-A, you'll need this app to avoid the gaggles of teens in skinny jeans who will only remind you that you shouldn't have eaten that damned delicious Chick-Fil-A.
