From Singapore comes the latest mobile application that will surely hit the target audience and market in the Philippines, preferably those seeking chat-mates or would-be partners in this free smartphone app where meeting new people is made easy with a simple touch of the finger through mobile gadgets.

In Cantonese, Pak Tor means ‘to go on a date‘.

Simply swipe, match, and chat and you’ll be on to something like meeting new friends or dating your new found match with the free Paktor iOS and Android app. To know more, visit www.gopaktor.com.

Last Oct. 21, Skye Roof Deck at W High Street Building was filled by people having the same goal, to network and find their Paktor match. Raymund Gutierrez hosted the night where celebrities, media guests, bloggers have joined and band together on a perfect night over-flowing with booze, appetizers, and music from DJ Kulkid who’s spinning electro-house from his deck.

Paktor founder¬†Joseph Phua drew from his own experiences in founding the company and building the smartphone app. The idea came when he just ended a long-term relationship and had trouble meeting new people. After exploring all of his options, the idea to create a simple and friendly smartphone application built around “locality, usability and anonymity” popped into his head. Joseph decided to specifically focus on the three key features “Swipe. Match. Chat.” after his evaluation of other apps and websites.

As Raymund puts it, “It removes the creepiness, all the awkwardness, and you can like people anonymously!

The Paktor launch was also a perfect timing to catch-up with familiar faces like Dee Jae Paeste, a world renowned modern mural artist and Anthony Tan (who came along with business partner, Natasha Bautista) of GrabTaxi, a mobile app for cab riding passengers to choose, pick and grab a taxi within his or her area.

Truly, this is the modern times and the coming of more apps are sure to be much-awaited.
