This is a bit scary. Want to know if a particular Bar or Restaurant is crowded before you go there? You can request a photo or video on Crowdmug and find out in minutes. You decide how much you are willing to pay and send in a request on your iPhone. If someone is at the place and accepts, they will take a picture for you. You can also take pictures and/or movies of your favorite place and upload them for free.
Crowdmug bills itself as the site to help you find out about a place before going there. It hopes to build a large library of photos for your viewing pleasure. The samples are quite well done and each place includes a map along with the photo. I imagine some bars and restaurants might upload photos, just to be included in the database.
