Filipino mobile phone brand MyPhone, steps up the game for the mobile devices industry as they introduced their move towards being a Multimedia company, providing contents and services using their devices as a new platform. Rather than emphasizing new models they’ll be releasing for the last quarter of the year, the launch was more of showing the contents or DNA of the phones.
In their launch tagged as “Transcendence: Rising beyond limits” MyPhone shared how its units will become revolutionary platforms for information, multimedia contents, and relevant advertisements.
With their newest software and innovations embedded in its phones, MyPhone sees creating and distributing contents to its subscribers as the next step for the company.
Providing services that will uplift the lives of the common Filipinos is another bullet in this list.
Starting with the integration of Digital TV in all of its android devices, MyPhone serves now as an equalizer to the market, giving 85% of the Filipino market relevant contents in their handsets. This step to digital broadcast will pave way not only to more free-to-air channels, but also to other free contests such as e-magazines, e-newsletters, audio streaming, image and video clips, and many more. These contents are only enjoyed by some nowadays via data or Wi-Fi connection.

MyPhone announced the release of the AGILA, the first ever lock screen advertising application that allows brands and businesses to set up advertisements on this new platform and at the same time rewards its users with prizes. What’s exciting about AGILA is that it is available to all Android phone users.
This new digital platform will change the way how businesses can interact with their consumers. The AGILA offers lock screen advertising, where an advertisement will appear every time the user opens his/her phone, and branded and offline games. Users can win prizes from their favorite brands when they view ads or play the games that come with the ads.
This rewards app does not only aim to promote sponsors, but also to thank users for patronizing them and making them top brands. More than a gimmick, AGILA is an instrument to give back to the Filipino consumers.
There will be three different raffles: daily, weekly, and the grand raffle where users can win watches, MyPhone units, and up to 2 million pesos in cash. To join, just simply download the AGILA app to your phone, register via Facebook, and start interacting with the ads that appear on your phone’s lock screen. Swiping an ad to the right will skip the ad and give the user 1 raffle entry. Swiping the ad to the left will let the user view the details of the ad, play a game, and view news and alerts, which gives the user 5 raffle entries. If users share an advertisement on their social media accounts, they will earn 20 raffle entries. The more entries you have, the more chances of winning.
