Celebrating this announcement and the theme of love and friendship, Paktor is sponsoring Taiwanese film, Rhythm of the Rain (见下雨的声音), which premiers in Singapore today.


Launched in June this year, Paktor shortly clinched the third place on the top free iPhone apps chart for Singapore.

Following its success in Singapore, Paktor has also recently launched in Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia, and the app will make its debut soon in other Asian regions.


As part of the movie's promotional activities, Paktor is sponsoring the Love Lock Fences which are inspired by the fences on Pont de l'Archevêché in Paris, on which lovers secure padlocks to symbolize love and eternity. From about a week, the Love Lock Fences will be placed at a number of locations in Singapore for couples to "lock" their love for eternity.


Reflecting elements of the movie's plot, such as the subtleties of human communication due to the protagonist's handicap, proceeds from every love padlock purchased will go to the Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf).
