Pickat SG, a location-based social application, that allows you to discover, create and share locations/things/information easily is now in Singapore! Singapore is the first global market to launch Pickat after South Korea. With our online social media/internet usage and ownership of smartphones in Singapore, location-based social application will only get more popular and useful for people (especially for social media influencers to share with their fans/followers/supporters) to discover, create and share their favourite locations/things/information from food, drinks, shopping and entertainment!
Pickat SG is launched by SK Planet, a subsidiary of South Korea’s largest Telecommunications company SK Telecom. Pickat SG is an interesting and useful app for your smartphone, let me share with you some of their key features –
Key features of Pickat include:
1. Picks: A Pick is created when a place of interest and a theme is combined to share information about both a place and the interesting quality about the place.
- Place of Interest (POI): A place of interest is a physical location in Singapore. It can be a restaurant or a tourist attraction or a fashion retail store.
- Themes: A theme is a tagline or review to describe a Place of Interest. Multiple POIs can be grouped into the same theme. This feature allows users to subjectively filter their experiences by grouping all POIs together within the same group and allow friends and community to access the information.
For example, themes can be as simple as “Light Lunches” to more specific ones such as “Romantic First Dates” or “Restaurants with Craft Beer”. Users can connect with other Pickat users or their themes to find out about their discoveries (“Picks”), or connect via your social networks to see what your friends have been discovering.
Top Picker: A Top Picker is a power user who frequents many POIs and provides reviews, recommendations and experiences in the form of themes.
2. Launching first in Singapore, there will be a coupon feature which updates users on the latest available location-based deals such as discounts and freebies. Additionally, the coupon function also enables users to enjoy special discounts from Pickat’s partner merchants

Pickat is currently available for both iOS and Android users, and can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes store and Google Play from 14 June, 2013.
