IPC Shopping Centre App Review
Just last month, IPC Shopping Centre revealed their centre-wide redevelopment that took almost one year to complete. The shopping centre went through a RM 200 million redevelopment which includes the surrounding landscaping and community infrastructure. You can check out our review on the new redeveloped IPC Shopping Centre at https://www.placesandfoods.com/2018/02/ipc-shopping-centre.html
The redevelopment didn’t stop there. In fact, IPC Shopping Centre even created their own app (application) for Android and Apple smartphone users. You might be thinking this is another boring app so I downloaded the app and did a quick video review as below.
Let’s go thru the new IPC Shopping Centre App. You can download the app for FREE from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
After you launch the app, this is the home screen. It is very user friendly so you can actually swipe left and right to see the new highlights of the IPC shopping centre. They even show you the weather forecast at the mall, so cool right.
I believe this is important for people who wants to know the parking rates of the shopping centre. With the information stated in the app, you know how much you will be paying while parking in IPC Shopping Centre now.
Ever wonder what to do in IPC Shopping Center? With the app, you can know what to eat and also the entire store guide including categories. This is one of the few main reasons why you should download the app as you can scroll and check out all the stores in IPC Shopping Centre. And plan your trip beforehand! There is also map view so you know where the exact store is located in the shopping centre.
This is the coolest function of the app in our opinion. It is called the Mood Menu. How it works it actually connects to your Spotify app. Together with Spotify’s rich user data, IPC Shopping Centre worked alongside world-renowned taste psychologist Professor Robin Dando of Cornell University to create ‘The Mood Menu’ – a food-and-mood matching tool based on a complex proprietary algorithm of human emotions and the effect on their sense of taste. According to Professor Dando’s landmark 2015 study published in the scientific journal Appetite, human moods have the ability to inhibit or accentuate sweet, salty, bitter, sour, or umami (savoury) flavours.
By connecting to your Spotify playlist which you listened recently, the Mood Menu will ‘define’ your mood…
The users’ moods are then matched with suitable flavours offered by the diverse range of dining delights at IPC Shopping Centre, via the proprietary Mood Menu algorithm based on taste psychology insights from Professor Dando For example, I have been listening to HK group Beyond playlist recently and they labelled it as ‘Sad’. Hence, the app recommended a list of restaurants which matches my mood.
Check out the list of restaurants based on my mood. Most of them are cafes or dessert shops and hence by visiting them, it probably makes me ‘happier’? This app is quite cool right?
Best of all, I can now save time thinking of what to eat and just let the app decide for me.
To maximise the functionality of the app, you can sign in as member and you will get members only promotions. This is probably the coolest shopping centre app ever in Malaysia.
