This post comes a few days late seeing as how Thanksgiving has passed for about a week now. But it did take us sometime to gather our thoughts of 2010 and enumerate all the things we wanted to give thanks for.

Ahhh...Thanksgiving Day.... Primarily celebrated in USA and Canada, it is a day where families and friends gather to give thanks and we at ShowNearby practice this tradition too! It's time to reflect and give thanks for yet another very successful year for us. :)

It all started with ShowNearby Analytics where we worked with IDA Singapore to develop a web application targeted at home buyers and business owners looking for new locations to start businesses or settle down in. For over 6 months, we have gotten huge support from our partners and users. It was a wonderful experience for all of us at ShowNearby and we are looking forward to embark on another wonderful journey with IDA Singapore in the near future.

ShowNearby Analytics!

In June, we launched our very first ShowNearby for iPhone mobile application. Despite starting on Android at the very beginning, we have never forgotten about the iPhone users in Singapore. At ShowNearby, we envision to give the best location based services to all our smartphone users regardless of operating system. Since then, we have amassed over 100,000 downloads from the Apple Apps Store. It is simply amazing.

Shortly after that, we were in the headlines when Global Yellow Pages (GYP) invested in ShowNearby, promising a hefty sum of S$3.5 million. We are very pleased to be part of GYP as we complement one another to increase our product offerings and give value-added services to businesses and consumers alike.

Iphone and Blackberry for ShowNearby!
In September, we also launched ShowNearby for BlackBerry. No longer was ShowNearby exclusive to the fashionable iPhoners and geek green robots but also to the productive users of BlackBerry. To be honest, it wasn’t easy developing one for BlackBerry as we had only one (still one till today) developer in-charge of it, but hey… we made it. And we are proud to say that the ShowNearby mobile applications for the 3 different platforms are on par with one another in terms of features and functionalities.

Also in that month, ShowNearby was awarded the prestigious Asia's Top 10 Apps 2010 Award at SingTel Accelerate 2010! We were totally overwhelmed.

Top 10 Regional!!
As we head towards this busy tail end of the year, we would like to end the year on a very high note. Our very first bus advertisement is one such example where we wish to increase brand awareness of ShowNearby, letting people know the existence of an application on their mobile phone created for the community, by the community. We will also be rolling out a major update for our mobile application in all 3 platforms in the middle of December. You will be pleasantly surprised...

In closing, ShowNearby would really like to take this opportunity to express our deepest and sincerest thanks to all our ShowNearby users, partners, families and friends who have helped and contributed in one way or another to our success. We couldn’t possibly have done it without your unwavering support all these time. Thank you, thank you and thank you. With your continuous support, ShowNearby is confident to deliver better services and features to our users and value to our partners in the years to follow.
