name Clopy is a word play of the ever-so-helpful ‘copy and paste’ function that
we use frequently whether at work or at home. As its name Clopy
suggests this is a cloud based computer and mobile application that allows you
to have all your documents with you in your pocket on-the-go whenever and
wherever you want.

can deny that they have never left their important documents or pictures at
home and need it urgently? You can finally stop sending emails with attachments
to yourself. With Clopy, hopefully this will be a thing of the past!
walkie talkies, now instead of the regular radio frequency it is connected with
change that to an Internet connection and you get the Smart Walkie. This is more than your regular walkie talkie which has a limited range and only allows you to send
or received voice messages.
Walkie is a mobile application and a specially modified Motorola
Smartphone. It has all the basic features of a Smartphone with an additional
feature of being an elevated walkie talkie. With the
Internet connection feature the Smartphone provides, Smart Walkie is able to operate over a longer range, send
and receive voice and text messages. In addition to that, when you received
text messages they can be read out to you! Pretty cool feature especially when
your hands are preoccupied.
We Like It
Smart Walkie allows you to send messages over a longer range as compared to
regular walkie talkies as all you need is a working Internet connection. Looks
like the days of ugly and bulky walkie talkies may finally come to an end!
is a social gifting app that also focuses on social good. When completed and
launched, there would be a website and mobile application. How it works is
that, you put items you like on a wish list that can be seen by your family and
friends. When a gifting occasion is coming up, your loved ones or family can
purchase items from your list for you. Meaning, no more bad presents!
from the hundred or if not, thousands of other gifting applications out there, SurpriseMe strategically differs in three aspects. Firstly, it
is not just items from fashion houses that are up for sale. SurpriseMe offers its users to purchase products with a social cause in mind. Take for an example, bar soaps that have
been made by women at risk of being implicated into the sex trade for money,
if you are not sure on what present to gift a loved one or friend, SurpriseMe
can give you recommendations based on the use of big data technology. So
you will never go wrong with gifting again, well at least the chances of you
getting things wrong will not be so high. Lastly, if you want something that costs
a little more than your friend’s budget, SurpriseMe can help ‘crowdfund’ that
Prada or Gucci bag you got your eye on for some time now.
Why We Like
this, you can finally never get another photo frame, moisturizing lotion or a
stick of deodorant for your birthday or Christmas ever again. Only problem is that it
won’t be ready till Christmas season later this year.
is a mobile application for both Android and iOS that helps you book a table at
the hottest clubs in Singapore, with no hassle involved. If you have booked a
table at a club for a party with your mates, you will know that sometimes
(well, more often than not) it can test your patience in many ways. You call
clubs one by one, inquiring for the price for a table and how many covers you
could get – yes we have all been there.
With Privilist, you can skip all that. Get all the information you want in one
mobile application. Whether you are booking a table for a gathering or just
checking out what parties are in store during the weekend. There is even a
membership if you spend at a club through this mobile application, you will be
able to exchange these points for members only benefits.
only minor flaw is that this mobile application will only be available in
Singapore for the time being, and will launch at the end of this month.

the calls (that usually go unanswered for your first three tries), book a table
at your convenience and still get treated like a VIP – who doesn’t want
the sparkles and over the top entrances?
