SINGTEL on Tuesday unveiled a new version of its mobile payments app Dash, and launched the Singtel Transit NFC SIM - in what the telco said is collectively Singapore's first all-in-one mobile payments solution.

With the new Dash, customers can top up their Singtel Dash balance via any bank account with Citibank, DBS, OCBC, POSB, Standard Chartered Bank and UOB. Customers can also send money to friends and family in Indonesia, the Philippines, India and China when they sign up for the remittance service.

With the Singtel Transit NFC SIM, customers can - via the Dash app - check and top up their ez-link balances on the go. This effectively transforms NFC phones into ez-link cards, Singtel said.

On Tuesday, the telco also welcomed Prime Taxis to its taxi network, through which customers can pay their fares with Dash.
