We believe that life is about the moments we share and experience with each other.
At Hang Local we make innovative tools that power friendship and foster community because great friendships make us happy and happy people make a happy world.
We've put all of our love into making it easy for you to notify your friends when you become free to hang out.
Choose an activity and then share it with close friends in the area to let them know you wanna meet up.
Get together to grab coffee, catch the latest movie, go for a walk, or just hang out.
Each time you wanna hang, only the friends you want to meet up with are notified, not everyone you know.
Friends that you want to hang out with are quickly selected from the contacts in your address book and tagged as your Hang Local Buddies. Any Buddies that do not yet have our app can easily receive and respond to your hangout by txt or e-mail.
We're on a mission to improve global happiness by building tools that empower friendship and promote community.
Call us crazy, but we think the world is a better place when people feel loved by a friend and part of their community.
Research from Harvard agrees that strong relationships play a large role in keeping us happy and healthy as we grow older.
As independent creatives committed to our mission, strengthening friendship and promoting community, it is our innovative membership program which allows us to focus on our mission instead of the financial incentive of outside investors.
Hang Local Membership is an investment in the community and allows us to focus on the tools and services for the community.
It also adds fuel to our fire so that we can keep moving forward and stay fed too!

As we grow our offering, we share Members Only access to new features and services before releasing them to the public. Members can play an active role in shaping what we work on should they have that interest.
A few years back, I left a tenured job at Google in pursuit of building grassroots software focused on getting us to spend less time online and more time with each other.
A self proclaimed super nerd and longtime fan of technology, I realized that some of the apps and services coming out of Silicon Valley were actually doing a disservice to humanity by edging us towards greater isolation and inactivity.
Since getting started on Hang Local, I've been recruiting like minded folks along the way to join the movement and participate in whatever capacity interested as we collectively advance towards the future we want.
I'm in love with this work and thrilled to potentially have you as a member of our growing community! Please drop me an e-mail anytime with feedback, thoughts or ideas you want to share!
Building an app for the iPhone and Android from the ground up is a large and costly effort. Most likely many of the apps that you love are designed and built by large corporations or heavily funded startups like Uber.
Consider that the apps and services you know, like Google and Facebook, are backed by BILLIONS of dollars that pay THOUSANDS of engineers and other quality folk to make their magic happen.
We're still just the little guy running lean and mean to get things started. We're taking David vs Goliath to a whole new level as we swim with the big boys.
Our Membership program helps us offset the growing computer services required to keep our tools online while also allowing us stay fed and stay independent from outside investors. In this regard, we're probably uniquely different than just about every app out there.
If you're not yet ready for membership we' be thrilled to have your support with our classic HL sticker!
Hang Local goes where you go and naturally works wherever you are in the world by using a combination of your cell phone's GPS and information from your address book. Automatically locate your Buddies in the area wherever you may roam.
No. When your friends don't have the app, Hang Local will e-mail or txt them via cell that you wanna hang. Then can of course also quicly reply without downloading anything.
Early App Access allow members to use our bleeding edge app builds and services before they are released to the public.
As we continue to develop and test new features, certain features will only be available to Hang Local sponsors.
We are committed to the long-term success of Hang Local. Building world class software takes more than 1 month of support. Sponsoring Hang Local is a commitment to its long-term success and launch. We are in this for the long game and we want out sponsors to be committed also.
Every sponsor is issued an official Hang Local Founding Member number used for member-only discounts and member-only events.
Private Groups allow members to setup a group for only their friends to participate in and share their availability to hang out or meet up only with other members of that group anywhere in the world.
The Hang Local iOS app is currently in private beta testing and available to Hang Local Early App Access members. The Hang Local Android app is currently under development. We have not yet shared a public launch date.
