Technology has now made malling much easier and more convenient.

The Robinsons Mall mobile app is the Philippines’s first truly interactive, easy-to-use shopping guide. Its eye-catching graphic interface allows users to find their favorite stores, record their parking space, not to mention get announcements on the malls’ latest events and promos.

“With the Robinsons Malls mobile app, Pinoys can indulge in their favorite weekend pastime with ease. They can enjoy Robinsons Malls right at the palm of their hand. They can breeze through the tenant directory, mall events and promotions, and even book a movie with a few tap on their smart devices,” said Ms. Arlene G. Magtibay, RLC SVP and General Manager for Commercial Centers Division. “It’s easy living, made even better by technology. That’s how a stress-free lifestyle should be.”

The user-friendly app can direct the user to nearest Robinsons mall or give directions to a particular one—even when using public transportation like jeepneys, buses, PUVs and tricycles.

Mall visitors can also record where they parked their vehicles, guided by QR labels strategically placed on posts. While inside the mall, they can also navigate through the hundreds of stores via GPS at Robinsons Place Manila, Galleria, Robinsons Magnolia, Robinsons Metro East and Forum Robinsons.

Just input the tenant or store name; scan the nearest QR code on the pillar and the mobile device will direct them to their destination—the fastest way possible. Special attention is made to help persons with disability by leading them to all the elevators and ramps.

A directory of all the shopping and dining destinations inside Robinsons Malls can also be found in the app, with details and descriptions about a particular store or outlet. There is even a “Share” feature that allows app users to update their Facebook friends on their current destination. Need to go the nearest restroom? No problem! Just tap on the colorful app user interface and they will get directions on the nearest one.

Users can also purchase Robinsons Movieworld and snacks online. Just choose the movie they want to watch at their preferred date and time; select the seat, munchies and drinks; and pay for the purchases via credit card (Visa and MasterCard are accepted via a secure payment portal). There will be no need to line up.

App users can go straight to the theater porter, show the email or text confirmation and they will be immediately ushered to their seats. Purchased snacks will also be delivered, right to where they are seated. A maximum of 10 tickets can be purchased for every transaction with a minimal P10 online charge. This service will be available in all Robinsons Movieworld screens nationwide, currently numbering 115.

Pre-scheduling the next movie date is also possible as the app contains the succeeding movies that will be shown in the theaters. Users can even program the app to prompt them for upcoming events like concerts and mall-wide sales.

The 35,000-plus Robinsons Privilege Card holders can also access the app so they can be reacquainted with the privileges available to them, including a list of stores offering discounts and freebies.

There is also a Lingkod Pinoy Center directory in the app. Lingkod Pinoy centers serve as a one-stop shop for government transactions like the SSS, GSIS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG Fund, OWWA, POEA, NBI, LTO and DFA.

Robinsons Malls will also hold a caravan in the activity area of Robinsons Metro East on October 17, Forum Robinsons on October 25, Robinsons Magnolia on November 9 and Robinsons Place Manila on November 30 to encourage mall goers to download the app.

Mallers who download the new Robinsons Malls App will receive Welcome Deals with discount coupons provided by partner merchants and freebies from affiliates in their email. As a bonus, every app download and registration is automatically qualified for a selfie stick raffle to be held every month starting November 17.
