Discover things to do. Send and track invitations. Meet up and have fun!
Singapore 17 September 2012 – Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (Singtel) today unveiled Loop & Meet, a mobile app that allows users to discover fun things to do and organise outings with friends. The app enables mobile users to send event invitations quickly and easily, and track responses without having to sort through dozens of email and text messages.
With Loop & Meet, users can browse through hundreds of events that are refreshed daily from inSing.com. These events have been categorised for easy browsing: movies, music, leisure, night out, arts, festivals and family.
The service allows users to invite their friends via SMS or email. Recipients can then use the SMS and web platforms to confirm attendance and chat with registered users, even if they have not installed the app. Loop & Meet will help to track the responses and send invitees reminders if they do not respond. This will make it easier for all users to keep track of the full event itinerary, time, place and attendees.
Mr Cheong Hai Thoo, Singtel’s Head of Multimedia, said: “As a Singapore company that is in the digital service business, we have developed an understanding of local lifestyle preferences over the years. We know that it is sometimes difficult to plan new activities or think of new places to visit. Loop & Meet makes this process a breeze so that users will never be short of leisure and entertainment options.”
“Loop & Meet is especially relevant as Singaporeans spend more time going out. According to research by the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA), attendances at arts events locally has increased from 27% in 2002 to 48% in 2011,” he said.
Loop & Meet is an important addition to Singtel’s growing suite of multimedia offerings, which includes the skoob e-Books service, AMPed music service and deF!ND digital concierge.
“At Singtel, we differentiate ourselves by offering applications that enhance the lives of our customers. We aim to make it easier for them to find important information on their mobile devices and get things done faster,” Mr Cheong said.
Loop & Meet is available for free download from the Apple App Store and Google Play store. It was developed in collaboration with app developer, Goba. For more information, please visit www.loopandmeet.com.
