So, unless you live under a rock or you’re my mum, you probably know that Amazon just launched in Singapore with their Prime Now mobile app.

If you didn’t know, you’re welcome…

What this means for us consumers is promotions galore, wider choice and the ability to get whatever you want, whenever you want online.

To commemorate this momentous occasion for Singapore shoppers, here’s a list of the top 5 mobile shopping apps:



Clothes, food, detergent, tech… pretty much whatever you need is available on Shopee. I’ve been a user for the past few months and it is quite convenient. Their in-app payment system definitely makes it an easier option to use.



The first thing that comes to mind is Carouhell, but it’s much more than that. I’ve personally sold about S$500 worth of items on Carousell, so ‘Yay’ for me. Once they reduce the number of push notifications, it will be an even better service.

Prime Now


Singapore joins the 2-hour delivery period family now with the launch of Prime Now by Amazon! While I haven’t had a chance to use this service, Amazon usually know what they’re doing. I’ll choose faster delivery any day.



If you hate going to the grocery store or supermarkets are just too far away, there’s always Redmart. My first and only choice whenever I need groceries delivered. It’s never failed me, so I am a believer.



They love their sales and so do I!

Originally it was web-only and I’ve been a fan since then. I find it most useful for technology items and office equipment, but they’ve got a growing library of fashion and accessory items.

It’s okay, you don’t need to thank me again for having made your life infinitely easier…
