The newly launched Strum app offers something no other application has been able to give you before: the ability to directly converse and connect with local businesses.
Strum lets you locate and send messages to your favorite establishments, tag specific employees for their great service, and then send public or private messages directly to business owners. You can earn Strum Points for your activity and be able to use these to bid on great local goods and services in the Strum Auction. Meanwhile, employees who get recognized for great service can also earn Strum Points. If you want to try it out, you can download it for free on the iTunes App Store.
