To express our Malaysian pride on this Merdeka Day, we highlight some of the best homegrown apps that tick all of these boxes.


The multinational ride-hailing company is now based out of Singapore, but did you know they’re founded by Malaysians Anthony Tan and Tan Hooi Ling? The company offers a range of services including transport, on-demand delivery, consumer and financial services on a single mobile platform.

Check them out here.

Watch Over Me 

An app that could save your life — and this isn’t hyperbole. Watch Over Me is a company that uses technology to help women all over the world feel safer. After a harrowing experience of her own, Xin-Ci Chin teamed up with her co-founder and team to build something for women to take charge of their safety.

Read their fantastic reviews here.


Previously known as ShoppingKaki, imSold is the Carousell-like app for University students. The Malaysian mobile shopping platform makes it easy for users to buy and sell their own things. All they have to do is take a photo, upload it, and they can start selling. Browsing is even easier. The best part? It’s all from an app.

Find them here.


We couldn’t talk about apps developed in Malaysia without sharing 988, a project we’re proud of. The leading Chinese radio station’s app is a new way of experiencing radio with features including 7 Days Catch Up, Live Video Streaming, and In-App Rewards.
