SINGAPORE: Grab is opening its app to external developers and fellow startups, as the company that bought out Uber Technologies Inc in Southeast Asia tries to build a WeChat-like super-app that encompasses everything from maps and payments to food delivery.

The move underscores the Singapore-based company’s newfound ambition to become an “everyday super-app” that helps millions of users carry out routine activities, chief executive officer Anthony Tan said in an interview.
