Here are a list of iPhone apps listed in no particular order that have been on my mobile device for more than a week. A week may not be long for some but if I don't like an app, I delete it within seconds after downloading. If you are new to Singapore or will be visiting Singapore, some of the apps below may come in handy. Alright here we go...
This app is perfect for tourists and expats! If you wanna talk like a Singaporean, this app will teach you how. If talking like a true red Singaporean isn't your thing, you'll at least know what the heck we Singaporeans are saying. My three year old son loves this app and his favourite words at the moment are "Alamak" and "Bo Pian".
Kudos to the NDP organising committee for releasing this National Day iphone app! This year's theme is Majulah! The Singapore Spirit and the creative director for this year's parade is the multi-talented Beatrice Chia-Richmond. If you had this app a week or so ago, you would have been able to apply for NDP tickets. But...there's still lots more you can do with this app so download it today!
My former employers during my teenage years have an app that shows you their latest promotions, combo meals and you can conveniently find the nearest 7-Eleven stores near you.
To be honest, I've not used this app to check for arrival or departure timings. Instead, I've been looking at the shops and eateries in the various terminals. My family and I are heading to Hong Kong Disneyland in 10 days so I know this app will be useful!
ComfortDelGro Taxi Booking
Forget about calling the taxi hotline! This app by Comfort DelGro saves you the hassle. All one needs to do is enter the pick-up address and hit the Book Now button. Once your taxi is confirmed, you can track the location of your cab. The GPS tracking automatically refreshes every 30 seconds so you know exactly how long you have to get to the pick-up point. I become a stalker every time I book a taxi. Heh!
I love this app! I suck at taking public transportation but thanks to GoThere, I get lost less often. GoThere tells you how to get to your destination and it gives you the estimated travelling time too.
I don't like the folks at HDB very much but good on them for coming up with an app. With this app...you can view the status of your flat application, flats that are up for sale, find out how to sell your flat and more...
Locacity SG by WeesWares tells you where the nearest 7-Eleven's, AXS Stations, CC's, ATM's, hospitals, etc... are. An extremely useful app that I've grown to love!
I'm listening to local radio more thanks to this Mediacorp Radio app. My favorite stations are Class 95 and Gold 90.5FM and I use this app most when I am on the bus. My only beef with this app is that it drains my battery!!! But that's what you get when an app streams live. Oh well...
Singapore by Lan Ma
Have I told you how much I love this country?! I absolutely do!!! It's nice to look at pictures of old Singapore and when you see pictures from the past, you'll get a good understanding of how far this country has come. This app is a must get for Singaporeans!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pastamania! Their food totally rocks!!! With their iPhone app, pasta lovers can now order their signature dishes with ease. There's nothing else to say about this app other than PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA PASTA!!!
You'll get the latest information and promotions from the fun-filled island! View the many attractions on the island, get ticketing info, dining options, directions and more! This app is perfect for tourists and Singaporeans that don't visit the island as often as the beach hunks and babes that frequent Siloso beach!
