You can now browse and post local photos, events, polls, and tips
Life happens a few kilometers from home or work. Neighbourly is an app that connects local communities to help them learn and share about everything happening nearby. After launching last year in Mumbai, Neighbourly opened up to cities across all of India, with neighbours asking and answering millions of questions along the way.
// Is there a cricket coaching centre for girls around Nangainallur?
// Can a professional photographer in Kadugodi cover a 2 hour event on Saturday 6-8 pm?
// Is anyone looking for a pet black labrador who is lost near the Sector 44 petrol pump?
Neighbours have been eager to share their unique knowledge. According to one samaritan, “I love to check out my mohalla in Indore and help people there with my local knowledge, while I get help from my new neighbours in Bangalore.” We’ve also clearly heard the feedback that asking a question is just the beginning -- there’s so much more local information out there that only neighbours know. With the latest update of Neighbourly, people can now:
// Post Photos - Snap a photo of the meal you enjoyed at a newly-opened restaurant.
// Create Events - Invite new neighbours to watch an upcoming cricket match.
// Create Polls - Get quick input on the best local vegetarian restaurant.// Share Tips - Update neighbours on hazards and repairs happening on the roads.
Neighbourly adds support for local photos, events, polls, and expert tips.
These features will make it even easier to share with and learn from your neighbours. You can also show off how well you know your neighbourhood by solving a Neighbourhood Challenge -- puzzles that will appear from time-to-time in the app. Your neighbours will then vote on your contribution!

The Neighbourly app is available on the Google Play Store for all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher. If you already have Neighbourly, you’ll see these new features starting today. Be sure to try your luck at a Neighbourhood Challenge, too! Neighbourly’s mission is to give people a helpful, human, and local way to keep up with everything happening nearby. We look forward to hearing your feedback.
