Divisoria Guide App which will be sold at $2.99 or around P130 at the App Store. This particular app would be an essential for new and aspiring entrepreneurs, and bargain hunters as they explore the country’s biggest marketplace for bargains.
The main features of this app are:
- An offline map that covers all the streets in the crowd-drawing Divisoria market in Manila.

Few years ago, I accompanied my sister to go shopping in Divi for her tiangge store. All we need is to stroll around the best shopping stores in Divisoria and got lost from the crowded Manila area several times.
Yayen said locals and even the Chinese businessmen who frequent the area are not even that familiar with the places that he just discovered while doing his research for this app. His almost one year of hard work made him realize that Divisoria has a lot of things to offer – from the basic commodities at very low prices that attract local and foreigners alike to as huge as the Filipino culture and history.
With this app, mobile app users can now access great information in just a click of a keypad. You don’t have to bring your map. With plenty of information on establishments, products, and other useful utilities, the app would help users in many ways, which include saving a lot of their time, money and effort.
Meanwhile, Divisoria Guide App will also be available for Android soon.
