There was a time not so long ago when it was cool to be appointed mayor of the bar down the street as a reward for your nightly foursquare check-ins.
Alright, it's still pretty cool to be the King of anything (especially when you get royal discounts), but instead of visiting the same place over and over again, what if you could be rewarded for discovering new places instead of ruling a local bar?
With Lavahound - the custom scavenger hunt app, you can uncover local treasures you never knew existed and get rewarded for it.
It's a modern version of the scavenger hunts we all went on during recess to find our friends' most-cherished scented erasers they'd hidden.
People all over the world are finding cool things and posting them to Lavahound as photos or pins on a map. It's up to you to find 'em. Just set your location, and browse what's around. When you see something cool on the app, go find it and earn some points. After you earn so many you'll get discounts and rewards from local businesses.
Find a sweet skate park in the middle of a forest? Share it. Users will come from everywhere to find it and you'll both get points.
Want a themed hunt for your friend's birthday party? Create one.
Lavahound is about sharing and discovering the coolest hidden gems around the world, even things you never knew about in your very own city.
Next time you're headed out for a latte, use Lavahound to see what's close by and waiting to be uncovered.
Gotta admit, ruling a map of local treasures is way more rad than being mayor of the ale house.
