Local company develops first app store that can be used for all smartphones

SINGAPORE: A Singapore company has developed an app store called Smoov, edging out Apple's app store by being the first web-based programme that can be used for all smartphones. It also allows customers use the applications online, at no cost. Its content is very localised, allowing for mobile payments - something developers say is rising in Singapore. In the future, the company will launch a mobile ticketing service with cinemas, which will enable movie-goers to buy their tickets without having to print them out. "What will happen is we will actually send a 2D barcode ticket to the user. And the user just simply needs to re-shift this 2D barcode in their mobile wallet on the phone. So once reaching the cinema, there will be a scanner which will actually verify that this mobile ticket is valid," said Mr Zave Huang, co-founder of Smoov.
