SINGAPORE- The association representing Chinese clans here has started a new mobile app to get more young people.

On Saturday, the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations (SFCCA) held a soft launch of a new mobile app, which allows users to connect with their clan associations. The app will showcase videos, publications as well as activities that users can sign up for online.

SFCCA chairman Chua Thian Poh said the online platform will help strengthen the communication and relationship between its members.

Apart from attracting young people, the SFCCA also hopes that the online platform would serve as a useful depository for published materials. Currently, more than 50 clan association members have uploaded their materials online.

A new book titled Singapore Chinese Then and Now was also launched on Saturday. The book features the history of the Chinese in Singapore over the past 200 years. Its content includes the history of Chinese immigrants and the significance of clan activities.

The mobile app will be tested out from Saturday to Nov 30. Users who provide feedback on the app stand a chance to win Samsung tablets.

Users may download the app for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. For more information, users may visit www.smartmediasoft.com.sg/immp
