Ask Others

Ever since we launched the gallery feature, we had been waiting for the weekend for a team-party. Being the product manager, it was my duty to organize the party. 

I am not aware of the best restaurant that will suit the demands of all team members, so I posted the this question in "Ask Others " section of CommonFloor - "Which is the best restaurant near Suncity, that will serve us Chinese cuisine and should have a dessert option nearby. Proximity to a punjabi restaurant will be a plus, in case mood changes at the last moment which usually happens?"

Thankfully, I got 3 replies within an hour about "Yo-China" restaurant near Marathalli. One helpful neighbor (Sumit) also pointed out that it is near to Innovative Multiplex. I made a quick visit to Weekend Guide and found movies running in Innovative Multiplex so as to book tickets for the team!

Now, I am looking forward towards Sunday for the party! 

"Ask Others" is a great feature to quickly get locality level information from neighbors and residents around a locality are the best sources to get real reviews. Try it out and tell us how can we improve it further!

Bangalore Police says "Hello Neighbour"

With the advent of urbanization, people are loosing contact even with their immediate neighbors. In a city like Bangalore, criminals are taking advantage of anonymity and lack of proper neighborhood feeling. Hence neighborhood watch scheme was introduced in Bangalore City by the Police.

As a step further, a new scheme called "Hello Neighbour" movement is being introduced by the Bangalore Police, all over the city.

You can read more about the objective at:

So, to get a better life and a happier tomorrow, say hello to your neighbor.

Your Apartment - Your Event - Your Photos

It's a well known proverb, "A picture is worth a thousand words". Events within apartment community are great way to celebrate and know each other. Photos and videos are prefect way to store and recollect experience. It is even great to share celebration photographs with each other to have a still larger collection.

This are photographs from Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrations at Suncity Corporate Leisure, Bangalore:

At CommonFloor, one of our main aim is to facilitate collaboration between residents. Thus, we are very excited to announce the gallery feature at CommonFloor. You can create albums for each individual event and everyone who has clicked a photo can upload it for everyone to recall their happy moments.

Try it out and tell us what you think. We'd love to hear from you!
