LocalUncle - Easier City Life

LocalUncle Inc.
★ Featured by Apple “What’s Hot” and “New & Noteworthy” ★
LocalUncle makes life in the city easier. Ask questions about places and neighborhoods and get answers from people on the ground. It’s the best way to search and find out about anything in your city, as it’s happening.

“... this looks promising.” - Tnooz
“... gets you answers, and gets them to you quickly.” - AboutFoursquare
“What’s most interesting is the magic that goes on in the background.” - TheNextWeb

LocalUncle gives you the ability to ask questions about your city, its neighborhoods and places and get real-time responses from people who are there right now. Your questions are sent to users who are at the location you’re asking about - who better to let you know what’s going on? And really, those users are like having a good friend at every bar, store, and neighborhood in your city, who you can text and ask anything you need to know. Talk to your city, in real-time, and know before you go. Yes, like a crystall ball. Yes, because it’s magical. And yes, it’s from the future.


⭐ Stuck at a lame party on a Friday night? Looking for a place that’s poppin’?
⭐ Tired of grabbing lunch at the same three places every week?
⭐ Trying to figure out where you can buy a certain product that you need right now?
⭐ Looking for a better hair salon?
⭐ Bored? Don’t know where to go next?
⭐ Feeling lonely and want to casually chat with people nearby?
⭐ Traveling to a new city and trying for a less touristy feel?

Use LocalUncle to solve all of your pressing city problems. Ask and ye shall receive...the scoop, right now.


We believe that people are fundamentally good. We believe that people like to help others when they need help. We built LocalUncle so we could harness this altruism and magnify it...and in doing so, we end up with something that is more valuable than the sum of its parts. We believe that a more open and connected world is a better world and we do our part by allowing you to communicate freely with perfect strangers across neighborhoods, cities, countries and continents. LocalUncle takes these strangers and connects us all as a family - one that is respectful and helpful to all other family members. It only works because every one of us takes the time to answer a question when we receive one...and together, we will change the world. Welcome to the family!


No. Never. LocalUncle never discloses or shares your location. The app doesn’t show your position on the map to others. Nobody knows where you are, unless you explicitly tell people your location. All location-data is anonymized. The only thing we show are names of places, neighborhoods, and cities and the amount (no names!) of users at these places.

QUESTIONS? (Yes, pun intended.)
