This is not a drill, folks. Here at Coconuts, we just launched the newest, freshest, and coolest app in town — for your reading pleasure, of course.
We know you’ve got tons of apps on your phone already, so why do you need this baby? Well, let us count the reasons:
1. It provides instant access to our compelling original content from across the region.
Our editors from all over Southeast Asia and Hong Kong have written articles that any news junkie should definitely read. Using Coconuts’ new app, you can read our article on how Hong Kong has become the hub for timber-trafficking; our investigation into how fast-food giant Jollibee used Pinoy Pride and nostalgia to market itself here and abroad; as well as our interview with a Thai woman who’s campaigning to get sex toys legalized in her country — complete with a photo of an impressive dildo!
2. You can read our groundbreaking reportage wherever you may be.
Whether you’re in a packed MRT on your way to work, stuck in the metro’s traffic while driving home, or waiting for your order in one of Manila’s up-and-coming restaurants, the Coconuts app is right there with you. You can say “sayonara” to your cumbersome laptop and “hello” to easier mobile browsing.
3. You’ll receive notifications as the news happens, on the go.
We’ve covered some of the region’s biggest events, from the Thai cave rescue to the massive Indonesian earthquake. With the Coconuts app, you’re pretty much armed to the gills with news updates from all over the region.
4. Its user-friendly design was made for the tito and tita in you.
We get it — not everyone likes to read from a smartphone, no matter how large it may be. But fret not peeps. The app makes Coconuts’ pages look cleaner than if you were to read our articles from a mobile browser.
It will also let you switch from one Coconuts city to another as smoothly as Lebron James makes a shot, as quickly as Manny Pacquiao executes his hooks, as … you get the picture. And to top that off, you don’t have to log in and out. With the app, when you’re in, you’re in deep, darling.
So what are you waiting for? Download our sleek new app from this link.
If you want to experience the full benefits of the app though, be sure to join COCO+, the most awesome membership program you’ll ever come across. It’s your all-access pass to everything that our site has to offer (including original stories!) for only US$5 (about PHP260) per month. That’s less than the price of a movie ticket!
