This mobile app is a community-based, crowd-sourcing platform for express bus commuters. It aims to reduce the number of accidents among express buses as well as provide critical information to commuters on estimated time of arrival, location of the bus and which bus operators are safe. It also alerts its users if the bus is violating speed limits. That way, they’ll have a safer commuting experience, especially for long distance journeys. All you have to do is install the free app, key in the perimeters – bus operator, bus registration number and destination – and it starts tracking.

This video streaming platform enables musicians to connect with their fans and to reach out to a larger audience through live performances, shows and competitions. Musicians have to subscribe for services like high quality streaming and stream slots as well as recording gadgets that will allow them to record their music anywhere. And their fans will get to watch their performances for free. Co-founder of FlowCastv, Henry Chew, 24, hopes that this app will motivate artistes to make music, release albums, and most importantly, realise the potential in the local music industry.

This food social platform is specially designed to optimise the meal invitation process to create a happy, fun and welcoming dining experience by encouraging everyone to eat together. For safety purposes, app users have to register through their Facebook account and provide their phone number. Then, they have the option of choosing who they want to meet by selecting either private or public Jioness. Private Jioness involves meal invitations to Facebook friends while public allows users to meet people who are within a five to 10 kilometre radius.
