With the recent update, we are very happy to share with you the different things you can do with your ShowNearby app. In this post, we share with you a few new features - cab booking, movie booking, viewing bus routes, and viewing Singapore Pool's lottery results.

Getting to the Point... of Interest
Essentially, ShowNearby shows you places, or points of interest, that are near you. We have dozens of categories for your use.

You may find these points of interest within proximity, such as ATMs, restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets, bus stops, shopping centres, post offices and many more.

ShowNearby does not leave it at that. We always improve and update the app, thanks to the generous feedback provided by our loyal users.

Users have requested for a myriad of categories, which we later prioritise and deliver. (A big thanks to you guys!)

Being helpful and relevant
The app prides itself in being a relevant daily utility. While it remains a mobile location-based service, the app is developed to provide users with a one-stop platform to solve their information-seeking needs.

For instance, finding the location of a particular restaurant may not suffice. We try our best to add in as much relevant information as possible. These include contact number, email address, website address, operating hours and so on.

We also work closely with relevant organisations, bodies and groups to ensure the data we provide remain up to date.

Our users are very important to us as they provide the latest updates, which in turn benefits the wider community of ShowNearby users. By indicating that a place is closed, moved or has its details changed, the user helps ShowNearby to improve the app!

Making a booking
One new feature in this app is cab booking (check the menu for Android, or place details page on any platform). While accessing points of interest, users may now book a cab (with Comfort Delgro). They have three options as to where they want to be picked up - the place they are currently at; the place they are viewing on the app; or a place to be determined by the user.


ShowNearby users can now also view movie show times and book movie tickets through ShowNearby.

Selected cinemas apply (Shaw and Cathay). Access the "Movie Theatre" category, select the cinema point of interest, view its details page and scroll down to view timings. You may select the timing at which you want to view the movie and a browser will be opened for you to making the booking.


Time to book those tickets!


Bird's eye view
ShowNearby users can not only view the list of nearby points of interest of a particular category or search word, but also access the map view of these places. (Select "View Map" at the bottom of the list to see the following!)



Those who commute by bus will be glad to know we now include bus route information. Simply select the bus number to view.

We also have users who have requested for one particular feature. And now we are happy to share it with all of you - Singapore Pools results (for 4D, Singapore Sweep and TOTO).


We sincerely hope you find ShowNearby the winning number in your daily life, as we continue to make this app relevant to your needs. There will be no need to open multiple apps for different purposes - just use ShowNearby!

So what are you waiting for? Go update (or download) the ShowNearby application now. Cheers! =D
