Damn what an amazing app! You can do yelp, groupon, ticketmaster, expedia(hotel/flights) and e-commerce all in one fully integrated app. I wish we have something like that in the US.

    I don't want such an app.
    The reason I have different apps is because I trust different brands and want to use those apps than surf them on their websites.
    Is using multiple apps a problem for me? NO. What'll this app solve?
    It's like going to Target and buying clothes in there.

      I don't know, it just seems like adding another layer.
      Instead of being able to click on multiple icons on a phone, I'd be clicking on the multiple icons within the app.
      I think this suits regions where people are not trusting multiple brands/apps with payments etc.
      I don't think US or Europe are such markets.
      Maybe in certain countries in Asia it'd be good.

      Lol, Expedia does the same. Flights, cars, hotels, some shitty tickets for show. You see the trend here?

      It helps in many ways 1) gather more data about the user, so that you know when to butcher them and when to give a discount 2) brand loyalty with points and shit 3) Slower release cycles to get everything working but less development cost as you save writing infra for all the apps 4) packages. If you buy x, we will give you y for a discount. The list goes on.
