Dear Users,

Thank you for your overwhelming support over the past 2 years. Because of you, we are currently Singapore's leading location-based service.

On mobile, ShowNearby is among the Top 5 location-based applications on both Android and iPhone.

On the web, ShowNearby truly shows you what's nearby and we strive to make more search terms available as we enhance our database.

Starting from a humble SOHO of only 2 people, we have become 16 people strong; with an active mobile user base of over 20,000 per day in Singapore. ShowNearby Mobile continues to attract 600-800 new downloads each day with favourable mentions in mainstream media as well as forums, blogs and review sites. 

The 9th July marks an exciting milestone for ShowNearby as we receive a $3.5 million investment from a company whose “Walking Fingers” logo can be recognised in almost every country in the world.

With their global footprint and expertise in directory listings, we are able to bring you the latest and most updated information about your favourite places.

The new investment capital will allow ShowNearby to focus on developing more features to help you find nearby things smarter and easier. We are also going to introduce new tools in the upcoming months to help merchants connect to their customers and unlock the potential of location based services. By integrating Global Yellow Pages’ data and advertisers, we will be able to deliver a richer, more meaningful location-based service; staying true to our mission of answering this simple question - "What's Nearby?"

The last two years have been a blast for us and we hope you will continue to follow us in this adventure to push location-based services to the next level. As always, we thank you all for the feedback and hope you will keep them coming. :)

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
*Cheers* from the ShowNearby Team

Singapore is too small and fitting in all streets, locations, landmarks is not even a drop in the ocean. I do not understand why big name like yours isn't that big enough for an ant to crawl through. RIDICULOUS! PREPOSTROUS!!!!!

I DID NOT USED THE WORD CONGRATULATION. ON THE CONTRARY, FOR A TINY NATION LIKE SINGAPORE COULDN'T YOU HAVE ALL AVAILABLE INFORMATION ON THE TINIEST MAP IN THE WORLD??? NAMELY SINGAPORE!
