The mechanics are pretty simple actually, download the app from Itunes , open the Opener app, register yourself and voila, you're in! Heineken The Opener utilizes your iPhone's GPS to show all the available Heineken spots where you are able to "open" your bottle.

Once you get to the locations where the virtual Heineken bottles are located, then things start to get interesting! When you spot a Heineken bottle floating in the air, use the virtual bottle opener to open the bottle-- just like opening a real bottle of beer. Just check out a sample shot of how this works below.

With treats ranging from RM50 - RM200, you can even share it with your friends via options in the app because it's Christmas time! Personally, I think this app is a pretty cool thing to have at parties where you could actually show your friend sitting next to you and go "Hey, check out my iPhone! It can open a Heineken yo!"
