Singapore gets Pickat SG, the latest social location-based mobile application that lets you discover, create and share places of interests with friends and followers of similar interests. Created by South Korea’s SK Planet, a subsidiary of SK Telecom, Singapore is Pickat’s second home after a successful launch in South Korea previously. Available for free on iTunes and Android’s Google Play.
Pickat SG currently offers 10 key categories including restaurants, hawker centres, food, drinks, arts & entertainment, fashion, beauty & spa, health & medical, markets & supermarkets and accommodations with more to be added in the future.

Here’s how we recently picked a place of interest:
Pop Up stores seem to be the trend these days with many popping up here in Singapore. So I decided to create a theme “Pop Up Stores”. My first pick was the Casio 30th Anniversary Pop-up Store outside ION Orchard which was launched just last Thursday. So the next time we visit another pop up store we will add new places of interest to this theme.
Pickat lets you upload places of interest within themes so you can easily find the places within that theme in the future. Comes in really useful especially when you are searching for places to eat such as “To-Die-For Juicy Burgers” or “Perfect For Family Dinner”.
