Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of our newly-minted iOS app at the iTunes App Store, ‘SG Memory’. It will make it easier for you to share and contribute your memories as they happen.
Snap a photo of your favourite char kway teow stall or a take a short video clip of that family visit to the beach. Then use the app to submit your memory, to the SingaporeMemory.sg portal, via your iPhone.
SG Memory was co-designed and developed with our friends from Nanyang Polytechnic School of Engineering.
You can use the app to:
- Capture a memory as it happens and share your stories with others
- Share your memories with friends on Facebook and upload your memories to SingaporeMemory.sg
- Explore the most recent and popular memories contributed to the Singapore Memory Project
Here are some answers to questions that you may have:
