Jeeran (Arabic: جيران,‎, lit. 'Neighbours') is a review platform designed to help locals and visitors find the best places and services in any city whether they’re looking for the greatest restaurant, closest ATM, or the most talented mechanic.

Jeeran offers reviews, photos, phone numbers, and maps for over 350,000 places in Jordan, KSA, Egypt, and Kuwait.[4]

History[edit]

Jeeran was founded in 2000 as a free hosting platform, in 2005 it evolved to offer blogging services aimed at bringing more Arabic content online. 2010 Witnessed Jeeran's biggest transformation to a reviews platform for the Arab world.

Following this big transformation Jeeran released an iPhone app late 2011 and an Android app early 2012. in 2014 Jeeran apps went under major revamp with the launch of Jeeran on windows phones.[5]

Logo history[edit]

Starting as a free hosting platform in 2000, three houses were used representing the individuals as neighbours (Jeeran in Arabic). A refined version of this logo was used in 2006 when Jeeran switched to a blogging platform as the houses remained a valid representation of users.

in 2010 Jeeran has transformed to become “Places in your City” and the ultimate guide for locals and visitors alike. The three houses were reduced to one and the logo had the slogan added to it to emphasize this transformation.

Today, Jeeran has expanded to exist on every mobile platform and in more than 38 Cities in 4 countries, and so a new redesigned logo emerged to symbolize the spirit of Jeeran as a company and the team's passion for growth and progress.
