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.
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.

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.
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.
