The Globe Mobile Apps are GServices, GCash, GMovies and GMessage, which are designed for account management and personalized services, financial services, movies, and instant messaging. GServices is an account management app available for free for Globe subscribers. Its subscribers can check their prepaid load or outstanding postpaid balance, register to promos, share load to family and friends, check rewards points and redeem rewards, and view postpaid bills and have them sent to their home or e-mail address. The GCash app, on the other hand, allows subscribers to buy prepaid load with a 10-perdent rebate, pay bills, send money to family and friends via their mobile, Facebook or e-mail accounts, and send donations without having to memorize keywords or access numbers. The GCash app also gives subscribers access to their contact list and even Facebook friends without having to switch applications. GMovies, meanwhile, is a one-stop mobile application for checking movie schedules and reviews, booking and reserving seats, and buying movie tickets initially available in Ayala Cinemas, and soon in SM Cinemas. The first of its kind in the Philippines, the GMovies app provides users the convenience of e-movie tickets by letting them view movie schedules, choose seats, and pay for ticket purchases minus the hassle of long queues in theaters, especially during preview of blockbuster movies. Finally, GMessage is a mobile messaging application that enables users to send and receive free and unlimited messages with other GMessage users anywhere in the world. The app also allows users to send and receive messages with non-GMessage users for P0.15 per message. With the GMessage app, users can also share photos, videos and audio files. The app also feaatures technology called ?Magic Words,? which can detect the context of a sentence and provide a link to what the user is talking about. Globe said it is the first operator in Asia to launch GMessage, a new tool for Filipinos who led the world in text messaging for a number of years. GMovies and GMessage are initially offered to Android users via Google Play, and soon to iPhone users via the App Store. The GServices app is available on App Store and soon on Google Play. Finally, the GCash app is available on the App Store, Google Play and BlackBerry App World. To download the apps, type glb.ph/GMovies, glb.ph/GMessage, glb.ph/GServices, or glb.ph/GCash on the phone browser, or send APPS to 8888. Standard mobile browsing rates apply. ]]>
