Looking Back at 2012

2012 was a big year for Showyou.

We worked hard throughout the year at making the app better — more useful and more fun.

We launched two big updates for the iPad (Showyou 3 in February and Showyou 4 in December); an from-the-ground up overhaul of our iPhone app (Showyou 3.3 in July) and introduced a web companion to Showyou  in April. And there were ongoing, more incremental improvements launched nearly every month.

It seems like people appreciated the improvements. Showyou was included in Apple’s “Best of 2012” list (second year in a row!), and is one of the “10 Essential” apps in the Social Networking category. And Showyou was in most of the prominent “Top Apps of 2012” and “Top 10” lists we saw, including those from ABC News, the Huffington Post, TechCrunchVenture Beat and Bloomberg News. And the latest version of Showyou is consistently chalking up 5 Star reviews in the AppStore.

We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but we know we’re still in the early days of this journey. The combination of smartphones and tablets connected to the Internet will revolutionize how and what we watch. Progress will be lumpy, and TV certainly won’t disappear overnight — but huge changes are coming, and we’re excited to be a part of it. We intend to stay focused on making Showyou an app you can’t live without. We feel like we got a lot closer to that in 2012.

Thanks to everyone who tried out our app for your support and your time, and for helping us to make something special.
