GoGadgets!

Once upon a time, having a postpaid line in the Philippines was a remote idea, especially when I was a student. For someone who had a loooooot of communicating to do (thesis group, lab group, parties, boys… among others!) it is very important to have a line at hand but it was too ambitious then until I had a part time job and could actually have something to show to Globe for my first line then.

But now, it’s a bit more accessible and even prepaid options are becoming exciting… and with those GoSAKTO offers you’re never disconnected and are always on the go!

I really like the cute character designs and how they represent each pain! Uh, not pertaining to that pain… NO EMO ALLOWED HAHA!

The skulldriver is my ultimate enemy outside of this app. I’d have emotions while killing this mofo. Hahaha talk about getting real about it!

This one’s my favorite, really showed you what a cramp is!

Unfortunately, it’s only available on Android. I wish they made one for iOS, though. You can download the app on Google Play here.

How to start? Players just have to initially purchase specially marked MEDICOL ADVANCE 5’s Pack at Mercury Drugstore and Watsons Pharmacy. Then they simply register at Medicol.ph, enter the scratch code found on the Ibufluid MEDICOL ADVANCE 5’s pack, scan the special TAPOUT PAIN barcode to unleash one of the Pain Monsters, and it’s game on!

Can I just pay via an App?

Now you can! I just downloaded the GCASH App right after I heard there is (much to my surprise!) and I started testing the features. Apparently, GCASH had just relaunched and is now even better and more functional.

So all you need to do is to download the app (it’s free, btw) and launch it. Make sure that you have registered first via sending an SMS to 2882

Enter your MPIN, and you’re good to go with the app. With the GCASH App, you can now send money, pay bills, buy prepaid load, and even donate cash! Converting money, paying bills and buying prepaid load is free of charge.

 

It also has a summarized home view where you can view your transactions for a month, which is really useful especially if a bulk of your transactions are done thru GCASH.

All you need for this App is a smartphone (available in iOS, Android, and BlackBerry) and a Globe SIM.

In a world where there’s an app for everything, it’s really great that a local brand can come up with a very functional app. While it has a lot to improve at (like eliminating SMS registration and optimizing list of brands tied up with) it’s a still a  big leap forward for a local brand like Globe.

What do you think of the GCASH App? Can you think of ways to incorporate it in your daily lives? Let me know in the comments section below :)

Alca-glamorous!

I shall admit that I was never an Alcatel boy. I had the Siemens cutesy phone when I was in grade school, Nokia colored phone craze (thanks to my high school peer pressures), then switched to and from Samsung and Nokia in the span of my college years, then finally stuck with a BlackBerry. But it was never an Alcatel.

However, after seeing these photos, I can’t resist but to say how sexy and glam they are and how I wanna try them. Not joking even, I hope they’re as functional as how good they look as they are powered by no less than Android OS.
