Globe Telecom, one of the leading local telcos in the country, partners with Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) to launch MyAppsMall, an applications (apps) store that will offer mobile games and other applications in a single portal.
MyAppsMall offers a wide variety of applications catering to various categories such as games, entertainment, social networking, productivity, lifestyle, sports, news and, finance and weather. Initally, it will showcase over 20,000 free and paid apps all accessible either via mobile or a PC browser.
Contents in this apps portal let users of Android, Symbian, Java or BlackBerry units maximize their mobile experience. Since the app store can be accessed in a single portal, registered users will no longer have to maintain multiple accounts to download any interesting application. In the Philippines, users will just have to log to m.apps.globe.com.ph (using any mobile browsers) or apps.globe.com.ph (using any PC web browsers).
Since Globe is the exclusive partner of SingTel in the Philippines who holds the right for MyAppsMall, all Globe users both in postpaid and prepaid will enjoy downloading applications without purchasing using a credit card. The amount purchased will be automatically charged to their Globe prepaid load or postpaid bill. Other SingTel telecom partners will enjoy the same billing feature. Subscribers outside SingTel and its affiliate networks will have to purchase using their credit cards.
MyAppsMall also provides a platform for Filipino mobile application developers to showcase their skills thereby earning from it. This will expose their apps to the mobile market not only in the Philippines but also to other SingTel affiliated networks.
