Making Food Friends made easy!

There is no dearth of apps to help you find a date, but what if you just want to make new friends; or what if you are just visiting a city for a few days and want to hang-out with someone local? That's precisely what Muster, a newly launched social dining app offers. Muster uses the tried and tested formula of connecting people through food & drinks and as they say, "Nothing brings us together like eating together". The app is very simple and user friendly. It uses your phone's GPS to locate fellow muster users and restaurants in your locality. An user can invite one or more fellow users to dine with, in a restaurant of their choice. Once the invitees accept the invite a chat option is enabled. Muster is slowly but steadily gaining traction and most of its users are millenials who are open to meeting new people and making interesting connections; be it to make airport overlays interesting by just catching up with a stranger for a coffee while you wait for a flight or by hanging out with locals while visiting a new place. Some of the users are interested in the prospect of being able to connect with new people over a drink after a day's work. The fact that Muster is not a dating app is its USP. Muster users can set the radius and other search parameters such as age, gender, eating and drinking preferences of those they would like to meet.Muster Technologies Inc. , the parent company under which the app was built is based out of Toronto, Canada. The app is just launched and is in its initial stages. There are news doing rounds on some exciting updates underway for Muster which could revolutionize the social-dining concept.

Inderjit Vasudevan Moorthy, who is the founder and CEO of Muster, started off with the concept of an app helping travelers to connect with locals in any city they are at. He was inspired to come up with this concept during a trip to

Montreal, Quebec and in his own words , "I got a chance to bond with a local who helped me explore the hidden gems of the city. Trust me, the google search wouldn’t help you with that. This prompted me to come up with an app that would help travellers bond with locals. And the best way to bond with someone is over food and drinks. That’s how Muster was born. As the concept evolved, the team was convinced of how Muster could help bring people together, enabling face-to-face interactions in our everyday lives." Thus the idea shaped up to become what it is today, an app helping people connect, helping people make new friends wherever they are.

In a world where increased interference of technology is wielding a threat to our social interactions, apps like Muster stand out. The app tries to enable real time face to face interactions even between random strangers. "Make Friends Whereever You Go", is the app's motto.
