Sagoon launches Version 2 with three new applications
KATHMANDU, Nov 9: Sagoon Nepal, a subsidiary of Sagoon Inc, on Sunday launched its global Version 2 in Kathmandu.

On the occasion, the social networking site also launched three applications -- My Day, Secret Messaging, and Mood Talk globally.


Sagoon founder Govinda Giri said that they wanted to make Sagoon unique by being a 'problem solver'. "We want to provide a platform for every user's opinions, feelings, emotions or even confessions," Giri said, adding that he wants to create an employment pool in Nepal in the next five years by making Sagoon at least $1 billion company.

Launching Sagoon's Version 2, Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli said that Nepal is moving ahead in the field of e-Governance. "In this age of technology, we will fully support Sagoon's dream of developing Nepal into a technology hub," Oli said. "It should not be yet another cheap networking. The government is currently studying the legal aspects of mushrooming online sites and portals and will soon come with provisions to regulate them."

Sagoon's new feature My Day allows users to organize and share their schedule, to-do lists and keep reminders in a very easy and simple manner. Likewise, Secret Messaging is a platform where users can disclose their message and get information but once the receiver reads it, it disappears while Mood Talk allows chatting with customizable moods.

Speaking at the program, Swati Dayal, senior designer of Sagoon Inc, said Sagoon has around 200,000 users. We have received 80,000 feedbacks so far, she added.

Earlier Sagoon had introduced Social Smart Card (SSC) through which users will get $5 once they create account in Sagoon. Also, they get certain reward when they refer Sagoon to their friend.

"We are soon tying up with Big Mart and e-Sewa so that our users in Nepal can use SSC for shopping and fund transfer," said Giri.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs (MoFA) Kamal Thapa expressed commitment to support Sagoon's dream of taking Nepal forward in the field of information technology (IT) in the next seven years.

SAGOON DEVELOPING BATTERY RECHARGEABLE APP

Sagoon Inc is developing a battery rechargeable app to solve power backup problem in smartphones.

Govinda Giri, founder of Sagoon, said engineers were already busy developing the application at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), New Delhi.

"When all features are used continuously, battery of iPhone last for around 5 hours while battery of Android phones give back up of around 4 hours. As battery life is one of the concerns of smartphone users all over the world, we want to solve this problem," Giri said, adding that it is challenging task.

According to Sagoon, the app will help the battery recharge continuously and the battery never dies once the users install the app and use it in their phones.

Sagoon is also launching its mobile version in a few months.
