Pub Mania helps you decide where to watch Euro 2012 matches
June 9, 2012 by Terence LEE
Euro 2012 fever is on, but picking the right pub to watch your favorite matches can be a pickle.
Specifically for Euro 2012, you will be able to find out which establishments will show matches and have promotions to attract football fans. To redeem an offer, simply press on the redemption button in the app and show it to the pub staff.
A “Tonight” feature lists out all the happenings at pubs around the island for the night, including live music, events, and sports screenings.
The app was developed after Ravesquare, the company behind Buffet Mania, found that many of their clients own pubs and would like to see them expand into the vertical, said Chua Meng Kiat, the startup’s co-founder.
Some of the key anchor pubs that have signed on include: 1 Altitude, Fullerton Prelude Bar, 282 & Citigolf, Swissotel’s Crossroad bar, Beer Market, Fry Bistro, HQ Karaoke, and the Bungy bar.
The app is available on the iPhone only for now, but an Android or Windows 8 equivalent is possible.
Ravesquare’s first app, Buffet Mania, has generated 30,000 downloads within the first 10 days of launch. It was ranked as the #1 Lifestyle app and #2 in the Top 25 category.
Currently, it has 2,000 monthly active users that are connected via Facebook — but that’s just a fraction of the total figure.
