Some quotes
- THE NEW PAPER : "The idea to bring the kampung spirit to a digital platform came to them in a bar."
- THE STRAITS TIMES: "The concept is simple: Users post comments or photos of anything they find interesting, which appears on a map as a feecha - a speech bubble-shaped cartoon creature."
- HARDWARE ZONE: "The potential uses are vast - from foodies sharing pictures of delicious food at a particular restaurant to shoppers alerting others of a great sale at a shopping mall."
- WIRED MAGAZINE: "feecha is a unique app that enables you to find 'what's hot now' in your location by screening content from all over the web."
- TECH IN ASIA: "It offers something different from traditional news reader apps. Since it’s a location-first news reader app, users also can discover information that’s not necessarily news-related. For example, when reading a food review tagged to my neighborhood, I learned about a cool ice cream place about 400 meters from my house that I had never heard of before."
- VULCAN POST: "Jaded by throngs of irrelevant posts? Feecha might just be the solution you need."
- YAHOO!: "The potential is undeniable."
- STUFF MAGAZINE: "An amazing Singaporean app." 5 out of 5 stars.

Great local news app Great way to read local news and to find out about what's happening in the "kampong". Additionally, when I plan or am visiting somewhere new in Singapore, feecha presents to me what are the hot spots and happening in the area, and what people are talking about at that moment! Interface is beautiful & well-designed too

Great app for real world interaction Has improved hugely in recent revisions. I'd like to see it rotate with the phone and feel a bit more snappier in general but otherwise it's a great app. Could be the next big thing with a little polish! Keep up the great work.
