A new app created right here in Tucson is launching to help you find the best local spots in town.

Localoop was created to give locals the chance to recommend the best restaurants, bars, activities, and shopping. Only locals can write reviews, so if you're visiting a city, you can view the app to see where the locals visit for the best possible experience.

As you recommend more places, you are eligible for special discounts and rewards from restaurants and other businesses in your area.

The recommendation system is not a rating system, so one bad review doesn't push down a restaurant or bar on the list of places to visit.

Localoop was created to celebrate the culture of Tucson and help spread the best kept secrets in town to support local business.

The app does not include any chain establishments, and as you make more recommendations on local businesses, you can unlock more tips from other locals.

It's only available for iPhone right now, but it will soon expand to Android users. You can find more information HERE.
