Our Creed

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.

The App

We've put all of our love into making it easy for you to notify your friends when you're 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.

How It Works

You select the friends that you want to hang out with from the contacts in your address book setting them as your Hang Local Buddies.

Each time you wanna hang, you can quickly swipe to notify the your Buddies in the area that you want to meet up with.

Any Buddies that do not yet have the 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.

Founder's Message

A few years back, I left my job at Google to pursue building tools that focus on getting us to spend less time online and more time experiencing life with each other.

Hang Local began as a side project to solve my frustration in figuring out which friends were available to hang out. It quickly turned into a calling to help people create more human experience.

Since getting started on Hang Local, I've been recruiting like minded folks along the way to join the movement and start spending more time with each other and support our local communities in the process.

Before Hang Local, I worked more than six years with the best and brightest Googlers on the teams that launched Google AdSense, Google Video and Google Checkout. Before Google, I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Computer Engineering.

We're almost ready to launch and looking for the support of a few more Founding Members.

Come join the movement!

Our Costs

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 to stay independent from outside investors. This is community sponsored software!
