You may have given up on Teletext but Teletext is never gonna give you up

You don't need to be colourblind to use Teletext but it helps.

Ah, the 80s. The era of British New Wave when Duran Duran, A Flock of Seagulls and Tears for Fears ruled the airwaves.

If you're hankering for a trip down memory lane and you don't want to pay the cover charge to Zouk's Mambo Jambo night, you can now relive the era of floppy fringes and floppy disks with an app called Teletext Singapore.

Yup, apparently, Teletext (AKA SBC Text, then later INtv) is still around and you can now get it, in all its blocky-pixelled glory, on your iPhone.

This app gets you fully functioning access to Teletext on Channels 5, 8 and Channelnews Asia. Get the latest share prices! Find out the latest news! Obtain COE prices! With Teletext, information is just a click away!

Buy this app (just US$0.99) now. You won't regret. Oh Teletext, now that I've found you, I'll be together forever with you.

The latest news is only a few punches on the remote away!
