Recently launched on both the iOS and Android app stores, the New Orleans-based crowdfinding mobile app — dubbed Scenehound — is the first of its kind. By connecting users to the local community, the free app provides a real-time snapshot of the restaurant and bar activity in the area. The way it works is simple: When you arrive at your location, simply check in, and, within 10 seconds, both users and establishments can provide information that will be shared with the rest of the user community. Fun tip: It even shows the girl-to-guy ratios at local bars. By reporting wait times at restaurants, or the activity of a bar, you can plan to either join a crowd or avoid one.

“I love meeting up with friends for happy hour, just to take some of the pressure off of a hectic workweek, and this app allows us to pick the perfect spot to rendezvous,” says Maria Muro, publisher of New Orleans Living.
