Stuff Singapore Readers’ Choice Awards 2015 - meet the App of the Year finalists

What was the most ‘appening name on everyone’s lips in 2015? It’s your decision to make

Without apps, your smartphone is just a beautifully designed chunk of metal and glass.

Apps are what makes the world go round. With the right ones, you can conquer the universe, or your schedule at the very least.

So which app is indispensable? We’ll let you do the deciding.

Carousell

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. And with Carousell, selling is as easy as snapping a photo while buying is as easy as starting a conversation. Thank you for enabling a treasure-hunting habit, Carousell. Buying is justified now that selling has become such a simple, painless process.

GrabTaxi

The taxi-booking app is still going strong, even as its competitors have fallen on hard times. And it’s not difficult to see why given how the company is constantly reinventing itself. It has added a new car-sharing alternative called GrabCar and started doing super fun local campaigns like GrabDurian. We live in exciting, ‘appening times.

Lazada

We’re usually a little afraid of tapping into this digital marketplace, because this e-commerce platform has everything we could possibly want to buy, without us having to get off our couch. Score. Besides categories stretching from Wines & Spirits to Consumer Electronics, the site also plays host to a variety of deals and steals.

The Entertainer

For those looking to get out and about, the Entertainer started out as a physical book of discount coupons, but then grew into an app making it a lot more convenient to bring around, and forest-friendly. Whether it’s a zen spa treat or a new restaurant you want to check out, you’ll find it at a discount here.

Uber

With initiatives like UberIceCream and UberDinner taking Singapore by storm, the car-sharing app always has something exciting up its sleeve. The app-erience is seamless all the way through to the end of the ride, when you don’t even have to pull out your wallet to pay thanks to its card-charging system.
