enjoy the enjoy app

while wasting time online, we started looking for free downloads on itunes for our iphone. we already have fun stuff like style.com and text twist, necessary stuff like currency converter and blogpress, plus stupid things like koi pond and bubble wrap. and of course the all-important facebook hehe... then we discovered the enjoy philippines app. you know that red enjoy philippines card? well, this app takes it one step further, making it easier to use your enjoy card wherever you are in manila, cebu, or boracay. we've downloaded it from the itunes app store (it's free!), but we have yet to try it out (with the card, we mean). for now, we just like looking at it :-)

just tap on your enjoy app...
then the now-instantly-recognizable philippine map pops out and simply click on your location...
choose what category you're interested in (clockwise from the spoon and fork): dining, nightlife, shopping, travel, live & learn, and health & beauty...
of course, we picked shopping, duh. an alphabetical list of all participating vendors appears. simply tap on your choice...
for example, all flip-flops. there you'll find what kind of discounts and freebies you can get from them...
plus the tabs contain additional info like branches/operating hours/phone numbers; a map to help you locate it; a save box if you visit this store often; and a twitter tab, which allows you to tweet the info...
the home page also has a search button—useful if you're not sure whether the establishment is part of enjoy, or if you're craving for sushi just type in sushi, or you're not sure who's in, say, power plant mall, or you want to book a beach resort, etc. you can also tap on that homing device thingy, which will "find" your exact location and pinpoint what enjoy establishments are nearby. amazing! so high tech!
today, we were in dasmariƱas village, makati city, so that's a lotta establishments because ayala center is just across the highway!

PS: wanna try it out? then get your own enjoy philippines card! and the fash pack is giving away six enjoy philippines card kits for free! here are the rules:

UPDATE: we have emailed the six people who have won the contest. congratulations! it was not easy to pick out the winners of this contest. we immediately disqualified entries which mentioned less than 15 and which included non-shopping establishments. hello, people, please read instructions carefully! a couple entries even mentioned shopping establishments in cebu, which was totally OK because we never said manila only. clever! congratulations to the six winners!
