Exclusive to Celcom customers on Android devices, Mobiroo will be available via Apps Cube on The Cube at RM9.90 per month for a limited time, which is half the usual fee of RM18.80.
All downloadable apps available on Mobiroo are free from pop-up ads and are screened for malware, bugs, piracy, and quality. Subscribers will be billed directly through their Celcom prepaid or postpaid accounts without the need for credit cards and users can share their account with family or across devices. The service also allows up to two devices to be linked to one account, allowing users to enjoy unlimited apps on their other devices or with their family.
Speaking at the launch, Afizulazha Abdullah, Chief Digital Services Officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad said, “Mobiroo is the first ever unlimited apps service in Malaysia and represents fantastic value for our customers who are rapidly embracing smartphones, especially Android devices. Coupled with Celcom?s fastest, widest, and most stable nationwide mobile network which is now LTE-enabled, this groundbreaking and first-ever service in Malaysia opens up a whole new experience exclusively for Celcom’s subscribers.”
Alan Wong, President – APAC Region of Mobiroo Inc. commented, “Like other fast-growing services that offer unlimited content, Mobiroo is a premium app experience that makes paid apps more appealing, affordable, and low-risk for Celcom’s Android users. We are excited to team up with The Cube to provide Malaysian consumers with a premium service that offers fantastic value and unlimited access to thousands of Ringgit worth of top paid apps for the price of a premium coffee.”
“We see tremendous potential in the Malaysian market which has emerged as a hub for developing apps and mobile services with more than 100% mobile penetration. With more paid apps and games being added to Mobiroo’s list every day, the value we bring to the service and our Malaysian subscribers never stops growing,” Alan added.
