App Attack #007: Shopping in Singapore

Shopping is undeniably a popular, and at times dangerously addictive, activity. This is even more true for Singaporeans, with numerous malls popping up everywhere to visit, explore and shop till you drop. With so many shopping venues and choices available, it's prudent to keep yourself updated, and be in the loop on the latest shopping deals around the island. In this App Attack edition, we explore some of our must-have apps when we embark on a shopping trip in the sunny island of Singapore.

Who doesn't love a deal when they see one? Fact is, there are just too many deals out there. ILoveDeals is just one of many apps that consolidates and reports on the latest deals in town. That's not all - ILoveDeals tracks down your location, showing nearby deals enjoyed by the major credit card companies in Singapore. And if you wish to filter the search process, you can customize the app to show specific credit card deals, and even redeem special offers via its m-Coupons.

  


DBS Shopping

If the name is any indication, you would know for whom the DBS Shopper app is catered for. DBS card holders will not only find a wide variety of deals catered to their credit cards, they'll also get detailed retailers info, such as location, contact number and even directions via Google Maps to the nearest outlet that offers these deals. And since sharing is caring, you can also share these deals on social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. For the foodies, there's also the gastronomic DBS Indulge (for both Apple iOS and Google Android) which focuses on the best food deals out there.

So many deals, so little time. But that's what these deal apps are for - to filter the best deals that matter to you. PocketDeals does just that, giving you a list of the latest deals, deals that are categorized as 50% off or more, one-for-one offers, and popular ones that are getting much attention. And if you have a favorite brand or retailer, you can add them right into your watchlist to keep a lookout for any upcoming deals. You might save quite a bit with PocketDeals, but do restrain yourself from going crazy over these mad deals.

 


Go! Shopping

Armed with all that deals, it's time to dash through the packed malls and collect on those deals. Shopping malls, however, can be a massive labyrinth that'll confuse you to no end. So you'll have to be prepared, by downloading the Go! Shopping app which displays a detailed layout of the mall for you to navigate. You'll also get more out of this app with detailed information on stores and promotions, giving you more shops to explore in your journey across the malls of Singapore.

Go! Shopping is great, if you are a shopping mall hopper. But, if you have a favorite mall, certain malls do have their dedicated apps. One such example is Paragon, which highlights their latest promotions, store listings and even car park charges for the up-market shoppers. If Paragon isn't your cup of tea, there are many more to explore, such as Ion Orchard and Wisma Atria.
