Life happens close to home, and local information matters. But it can be really hard to find, especially in big cities. And when you look to your local group chat, you find it’s filled with “good morning” messages and only has the people you already know.
That's why we built Neighbourly, the location-based app that connects you to your community so you can get information you trust, share your own advice, and stay in-the-know together. Neighbours have the most up-to-date, relevant, and credible insight about what’s happening nearby. With Neighbourly, connect with your entire community all at once.
Neighbourly will help you:
Ask questions and get expert local answers.
Just ask your question, and it’s routed to a community of neighbours that can help. You can also speak your question into the app, just like you were talking to a neighbour. The app uses Google’s expert speech recognition technology to transcribe your questions in your local language, so you can ask your neighbour a question in a way you are comfortable with.
Share photos, events, and polls.
Show everyone what’s special about your neighbourhood by snapping photos of community interests for your neighbours to discover. Source quick input from all your neighbours and make decisions faster by sharing polls. Even spread the word about nearby events so everyone is included.
As you share, your neighbours will recognize your insights with votes and medals. Plus, every time you share your knowledge, your neighbourhood becomes friendlier and more informed.
Keep up with your local community.
Scroll through and get inspired by everything happening nearby or select another neighbourhood to browse. Respond to an opinion poll, find out about an upcoming event, or get a helpful tip based on credible local knowledge from your neighbours. You can search for words or topics that you want to know more about. If you like something you see, you can tap the star to save it or even share it with your friends on social media.
Connect with your neighbours safely.
Post, browse, and comment without sharing all of your personal information. Keep personal details like your phone number, full name and other contact information completely private when using the app. Your profile only contains a small profile picture and your first name — the only information your community will see or find when you post to your neighbourhood. And your neighbour can never message you directly.
The Neighbourly app is available all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher. Neighbourly’s mission is to give people a helpful, human, local way to keep up with everything happening nearby. Help make your community stronger and feel even more neighbourly.
