ANNE CURTIS LIVE AND MORE

Words by Manila Concert Scene
Let’s face it. No one goes to an Anne Curtis concert expecting a “singing concert”. People go to one to see an Anne Curtis show. People go to see an escapist spectacle. Heck, even she admits to it. “Hindi maganda boses ko, pero I’ll give you a performance!” And perform she did.

Party like there's no tomorrow! Uniting all partyholics in one epic party on the eve of our Independence Day. Viber Philippines brings you to #OneVibePH! More event details as follows.

Drink Up PH 2014

Written By: Enrico Suarez

Festival fever is in full swing all over the Philippines. Last Saturday, another kind of fest was set up. This time around though, it wasn’t the music that was the main headliner. A first of its kind, Drink Up PH aimed and succeeded in holding a festival showcasing different local and imported craft beers, specialty cocktails and of course, really really good grub! The festival happened last May 26, 2014 at Federacion Dr. and 9th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio (beside The Forum)

Although not being the main highlight for the festival, some of the best bands and DJs in the local scene provided great beats throughout the day. All the musicians and performers made sure that everyone had a good time while enjoying their choice of beverage and grub. Drink Up PH band favorites were the giant sound of the south Urbandub who played for the crowd some of the most iconic OPM rock anthems (the audience screamed for an encore even!) and Pedicab who are composed of Diego Mapa, Raimund Marasigan, Mike Dizon, Jason Caballa (“J.Sonic”), and RA Rivera (“Just Toni”). No stranger to the music scene, the group of seasoned artists rocked our with their beers out with such hits as “Dito Tayo Sa Dilim”, and “Dizzy Boy”. Other bands who played that day were: Ely Buendia fronted band, The Oktaves, SXSW alumnus Taken By Cars, Flying Ipis, Turbo Goth, Paranoid City, Cheats, The Diegos, Autotelic, Ourselves The Elves, DJ Mark Agustin, Imelda, and The Brat Pack.

What we loved about Wanderland 2014

Words by Kix Suarez
Concert Photos by Ruby Abucot
Other Festival Photos by Manila Concert Scene

It was that time of the year again that the Globe Circuit grounds were flocked to by Manila’s youth and young at heart. All of them excited in their tie dye sandos, neon shorts and plimsolls for boys while the girls wore loose tops that cut quite low and breezy skirts while dawning the most outrageous and colorful floral crowns. Circuit was definitely transformed in to a Wanderland; where music, art and everything good about life seemed to just come together so effortlessly. Life was a lot brighter – tad bit more whimsical.
Manila Concert Scenesters were definitely treated to one of the best summer parties of the year. Seemed like everything you needed was right at the Globe Circuit grounds. It was one of those nights you didn’t want to see end and when it did end, you just wanted to stay a bit longer, to let things just sink in, to let time stand still.


Here’s what we loved most about this years favorite indie music festival!

KakaoTalk’s Latest Features Provide New Treat for Users

With the myriads of mobile messaging apps available in the market, it is crucial for developers to stand out by differentiating themselves from the competition. Simple, no-nonsense applications with only one defining feature struggle to appeal to the modern mobile user. In today’s technology-laden world, apps that capture the attention of mainstream audiences need to offer a full array of functionsOn the other hand, the demand for constant new updates can clash with applications quest for greater innovation, particular in terms of providing an aesthetically pleasing user interface that does not feel too cluttered.

KakaoTalk’s fun and unique brand image also carries a strong reputation as a leading innovator in the mobile messaging industry. User feedback is the most prioritized aspect for Kakaoand many of its new features were developed specifically to reflect theinsight and comments provided by actual users.

Brand-new functions such as the “Do Not Disturb” setting exemplifies KakaoTalk’s customer-centric mindset that also values the importance of privacy. Kakao promotes innovative connectivity, but it also understands the need for people to enjoy the occasional “Me Time.” The “Do Not Disturb” feature offers userthe option to disable notifications during a customized time period without worrying about unwanted message alerts.



o

To activate the Do Not Disturb feature, tapMore > Settings > Do Not Disturb, or you canaccess this via your notification panel. Once activated, an icon will appear on your status bar to notify users of your inactivity. To disable the Do Not Disturb mode, simply turn your KakaoTalk push notifications back on with a tap.  



KakaoTalk, understanding users’ need for message delivery assurance, also offers a neat feature that allows all messages to be delivered without fail, regardless of network conditions. This feature enables KakaoTalk to keep all messages sent by a user to stay afloat in the system and continuously reattempt delivery for a given length of time. So, even in situations where the network connection is unstable or weak, KakaoTalk users can send messages knowing that they will be automatically delivered as soon as the connection is stabilized, even during background mode. Once the message is delivered, the airplane icon disappears and is replaced with the ‘unread count’* number.



o

Even with a busy network, your messages can still be sent and stay afloat in the network, and once your message is delivered the paper airplane icon will disappear.

The paper plane mode is a great example of Kakao’s core philosophy, which values users and user experience the most. Paper plane mode eliminates any cumbersome need for users to constantly recheck their phones for message delivery confirmation or resend the same message repeatedly, reducing user inconvenience dramatically.

Knowing how many people have read your message can be key when taking part in group chats with dozens of people, especially when it involves important announcements. KakaoTalk understands this need and ensures this information is adequately provided through the unread count number. Next to every message sent on KakaoTalk is a countdown number, which begins with the total number of users (excluding message sender) in the chatroom. As others in the chatroom read the message, the number counts down and eventually disappears altogether when everyone has read the particular message. An exclusive feature only available on KakaoTalk, the unread count number makes communication all the more effective while enabling speedier feedback.


o
While talking to someone, or multiple people, countdowns are placed beside messages depending on the number of people you are chatting with. The number will decrease and eventually disappear when everyone has read your message

Users are bound to be pleasantly surprised almost every time they open KakaoTalk on their mobiledevices. There is always a new gem to discover hidden within the settings that will drastically improve their mobile experienceAs awesome features like the Do Not Disturb mode, paper airplane mode and the unread countdown illustrate, users can expectcontinued exciting innovations from KakaoTalk.
