Nock Nock: Where The Foursquare Geeks At?

Unless you’re a member of the service industry, Friday can mean just one thing – close your computer, all pens and pencils should be down and it’s time to hit the town. But where should you go? Sure, there are review apps like Yelp to figure out the best Thai food place within a half mile, but what if you’re looking for people?

Nock Nock helps you figure out which bars and clubs are happening in real-time by looking at Foursquare check-ins according to neighborhood in four cities worldwide.

Nock Nock focuses exclusively on nightlife venues like bars and clubs in New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Bangkok, dividing each city into neighborhoods for easy perusal. All you have to do to see where people are is choose and city and neighborhood and from there you can drill down.

The pictures of everyone checked-in in a specific neighborhood are shown and you can choose venues from there. Want to see only guys or gals? There’s an option for that, of course, lest you end up (as said in the demo video below) a “total pirate ship.”

You can also go a little deeper and look at each person’s profile, seeing any information they’ve provided publicly, such as their Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare profile and how long they’ve been checked into that location.

What do you think – will you be using Nock Nock to figure out where you’ll be spending the night out on the town tonight?

Of course, there’s just one thing – a place that might look relatively hopping on Nock Nock might just be overrun with Foursquare geeks. But it’s worth a shot, right?
