A so-called friend finder app based in Thailand suddenly became a “hit” on Malaysian social media, thinking they could benefit from the app in looking for “friends” that could accompany them for various ocassions.

DiffRide: Malaysian e-Hailing App that Dares to be Different

Another e-hailing or rideshare service was officially launched (they were called Diff at first) catering for Klang Valley at the moment.

This would surely hinder potential passangers to trust it. At the moment there is no “pull” factor as Grab…
