The new app called “ShowNearby” helps users search for places of interest nearby, such as petrol pumps, retail brands, tourist spots, emergency services, resturants and ATMs. The ShowNearby app is powered by digital map data of MapmyIndia.

The app gives information such as address and phone number of whichever place users wish to visit. With the ShowNearby app, users can save the data in their phones and even share with friends via SMS or e-mail. Users can also look for deals at desired outlets and brands.
"The user can view the place on MapmyIndia's detailed maps and get accurate directions to it, directly call up the place, save it to his contacts and also share the place with friends via email or SMS. The user can also see and request deals at outlets and brands in the application," says the company in a release.
