Pinoy - MyPhone MyA2

Description

Pinoy – a nickname referring to Filipino people – alludes to a sense of national identity. The app offers a number of paid services, such as music or access to news and entertainment (jokes, horoscopes, “guidance”, “experience”, “advice”…) - much of which is religious or political.

The guidance section, for instance, suggests that users subscribe to a platform called Reform Ph “focusing on reforming the Philippines through improvement of the political systems”. Users can also sign up to a service that sends them a “quote to brighten up their day” or to a daily SMS service that “focuses on the beauty of life and the goodness/faithfulness of our God” for just 2.50 Filipino pesos (Php) a day. Other paid services include Bible comics and Christian music, for Php 5 three times a week.
