The Singlife app serves as a one-stop mobile solution to manage your money through the financial product offered — Singlife Account, an insurance savings plan, that allows you to grow your savings with up to 2.5% p.a.^ returns while providing life insurance benefits in case of unfortunate events in life.
Finance apps are aplenty in mobile app stores. Yet, not all of them are easy and intuitive to use. Some may feel clunky and bogged down by features they don’t need.
A good app should not only bring joy in its design, but also make your interaction with the financial products offered on the app easier and delightful.
Taking a leaf out of Singlife’s book, here are 5 essential features we believe a millennial-on-the-move needs, which can be found in the Singlife app:
In the days of old, establishing a business relationship and purchasing a financial product of any kind required the mandatory trek to the financial institution, followed by reams of paperwork — and this is after you finally get assigned to a staff to serve you (possibly after clenching a queue number with your sweaty palms for over an hour).
Time is a precious resource for the busy millennial — especially in this age of “microwave” attention spans that are prone to distraction and frustration at processes that take longer than expected.
Given this, it’s no wonder that Fintechs and their apps today aim to reduce the hassle and lower the friction in the sign-up process. Singlife, one of the leading Insurtechs in the country, definitely seeks to do the same with its easy sign-up process for the Singlife Account on the Singlife app.
To apply for a Singlife Account policy via the Singlife app is seamless and fuss-free. A few minutes is all it takes.
Once the app is downloaded, create your Singlife ID. It’s even faster and convenient if you use MyInfo. Once your Singlife ID is created, you can move on to complete and submit your Singlife Account application. You can also order your complimentary Singlife Visa Debit Card which allows you to spend worldwide with no FX fees.

Some finance apps these days try to inundate you with a plethora of information, be it charts, indices, rates and projections. These clutter up the screen, may not even be useful or worse, confuse you to the point of helplessness.
For the Singlife app, the first thing you’ll see upon signing up and accessing it is its clean interface. At a glance, it clearly shows you how much you currently have in your Singlife Account policy and how much returns you’ve accrued this month.
As millennials can attest, an intuitive interface is absolutely critical especially when managing the money.
Today, people have an expectation that finance apps show transactions in real-time.
With the Singlife app, you can check your transactions on the go. You can track your returns, spending and transfer money in and out from your Singlife Account almost instantly via FAST.
Whether you are transferring S$500 or S$8,000 to your Singlife Account policy, the app reflects your transaction almost instantaneously. Similarly, you can also make a withdrawal from your Singlife Account policy anytime via the app. Furthermore, you can view a history of your most recent activity time-stamped and dated.
The Singlife app is free! The app connects you to your Singlife Account policy, tracking the activities to give you better control over your money. You can manage your Singlife Account policy with no hidden fees or charges.
A good finance app should give you instant access to various features at a tap or a swipe.
