As people in Myanmar do their part to observe social distancing and lockdown measures, it comes as no surprise that many are turning to mobile apps to do their shopping, manage their finances, stay fit, be productive and stay entertained during this trying time. Data from app store intelligence firm App Annie revealed global mobile app usage grew 40% year-over-year in the second quarter of 2020 while consumer spending in apps hit a record high of USD 27 billion.
In Myanmar, the Grab App has become one of the leading apps used daily by people in Yangon and Mandalay. What’s driving its popularity and why should you use it for your daily everyday needs?

GrabMart – Carefree Shopping
Shopping using the GrabMart service is not only fun and easy with a wide variety of stores to select items from, it also alleviates any COVID-19 concerns as your shopping gets dropped off at your doorstep within 30 minutes! Everyday household items, fresh fruits, vegetables & prime cut meats, cosmetics and personal care goods, health supplements, stationery and even pet food is available on GrabMart! What’s great is you’re guaranteed timely deliveries of authentic products just as how you would pick them up in stores yourself.
GrabProtect – Travel with Peace of Mind
While daily travel should be kept to a minimum, Grab’s Safer Everyday commitment has led to the development of a new taxi booking service named GrabProtect. In addition to being served by trained and qualified drivers, GrabProtect passengers will get to ride in a taxi which has a safety plastic divider between the back-passenger seats and the driver to minimise virus transmission. The safety plastic divider is transparent, will not interfere with the safe use of the vehicle and enables the driver and passengers to see each other. Passengers can also feel assured knowing that all rides are logged and contact tracing will be done efficiently, should the need arise.
So, when’s the best time to use Grab the everyday everything app? The answer is now and every day! Let Grab bring smiles to you and your loved ones through its trusted services. Stay safe everyone!
