The Loop & Meet app is powered by the GobaEngage™ platform, which allows organizations to rapidly create corporation-specific apps or include GobaEngage features within their existing apps that have been proven to engage users via their mobile devices.

John Dayani, CEO, Goba said, "In a world becoming increasingly dependent upon mobile technology, our drive is to leverage the momentum around the social-mobile experience to facilitate real, needed personal interaction. Goba is honored to be partnered with SingTel to bring this innovative vision to their mobile subscribers."

With Loop & Meet, users can browse through thousands of events that are refreshed daily from SingTel's event and content aggregation portal inSing.com. These events have been categorized for easy browsing: movies, music, leisure, night out, arts, festivals and family.

The Loop & Meet service allows users to invite friends that do not have the app via SMS, email, Facebook, or Twitter. Recipients can then use the SMS and web platforms to confirm attendance and chat with registered users, even if they have not installed the app. Loop & Meet will help to track the responses and send invitees reminders if they do not respond. This will make it easier for all users to keep track of the full event itinerary, time, place and attendees.

Patrick Moorhead, President of Moor Insights & Strategy, one of the world's most cited technology industry analyst firms in the world, said, "The biggest missing piece in the mobile internet value chain is to provide users an easy and fun way find things to do in the real world and easily invite friends to do it with. I'm not surprised SingTel chose the GobaEngage platform for their Loop & Meet app and service, given its uniqueness and flexibility."

Loop & Meet is available for free download from the Apple App Store and Google Play store and initially for use in Singapore. For more information on the Loop and Meet app, visit www.loopandmeet.com.
