Our loyal users are familiar with the fact that our ShowNearby Android App (now on iPhone too!) actually helps to show nearby bus stops, the buses servicing that bus stop and also the time of arrival of those buses. This means you can plan when to reach the bus stop in time for the next bus.

What this does for that lovely bus driver is that he no longer has to watch his side mirror ensuring that there are no last minute riders chasing after the bus and hopping on at the last instant risking severe disfigurement (yeah, closing bus doors and noses don't mix well.) So the bus company is probably really thankful for our app and thus they decided to show us a little appreciation by giving us some real estate on their bus advertisement! Check out the pic below!

So we saw the small little 'ShowNearby' icon on a bus advertisement and took the chance to snap a quick picture. That's PK our lead developer risking his life and limb for the sake of taking the picture! Sorry PK, but if you got injured, this would not count as work-related injury and our corporate insurance won't cover it.

But in all seriousness, that bus advertisement was actually for Sony Ericsson's new Xperia (X10) phone which comes pre-bundled with our ShowNearby app. Thanks for showcasing and remembering us guys! We're so touched...
