One app to please 'em all

Couple say TNP app makes it easy to read, share news

NEWS ON-THE-GO: Mr Tan Eng Sing and his wife Karen Foo showing the tablet that they use to read news on the TNP app.

He enjoys reading the news on his tablet while his wife prefers it on a smartphone. But his less tech-savvy mother-in-law needs it in print.

With his new "all-in-one" subscription to The New Paper, Mr Tan Eng Sing is able to kill three birds with one stone.

Both he and his wife Karen Foo are able to read the news on their preferred platforms, and the print version is delivered to their doorstep for his mother-in-law.

"We were actually looking forward to having an online version of TNP that we can read on-the-go," Mr Tan told TNP yesterday.

CONVENIENT

The 36-year-old IT consultant was especially happy that he is now able to conveniently read the news anytime, anywhere.

"Having the app makes it much easier to read news on crowded trains where I may not have space to hold out the entire newspaper," he said.

Reading articles on his tablet also gets him TNP points, which he can use to redeem attractive rewards such as NTUC FairPrice vouchers.

As of this week, more than 21,000 people have downloaded the TNP app.

Starting yesterday, exclusive content within the app that was free since its launch on June 10, is available only to subscribers.

Those who sign up will be rewarded with attractive prizes in our biggest-ever Grand Draw.

The prize: A Harley-Davidson Sportster worth $27,900.

Subscribers to the one-year plan also get to take home a prize of their choice: Monster NCredible NErgy In-Ear headphones worth $129 or a Lomo Konstruktor DIY kit, priced at $58.

Those who sign up for two years will get to choose between the Sony Smartwatch 2, going at $288, and a pair of Monster Ncredible N-Tune On-Ear headphones, priced at $249.

RESORT: Mr Chuan Kok Leong and his companion, Miss Luo Yuesha, checked into a villa like this one in Mahagiri Villas.

Singaporean Chuan Kok Leong checked into the luxury Mahagiri Villas in Bali, Indonesia, on June 5 with a Hong Kong woman he introduced as his wife.

The pair stayed in a one-bedroom villa, complete with its own private pool and enjoyed chauffeured rides and romantic dinners.

But on June 12, he was found dead in the $800-a-night villa.

The 24-year-old woman, Ms Luo Yuesha, was unconscious and frothing at the mouth.

Indonesian media said the police were treating the case as an attempted double suicide.

A check of Registry of Marriages records showed Mr Chuan was married here to a different woman in 1992.
