Scoutmob: A New Way To Coupon or a Ripoff?

coutMob is a downloadable mobile app that brings local deals to your fingertips. I recently had a chance to take a stab at it when I went to dine out with friends at Decatur’s own Noodle. And I must say my experience using the app was not what I expected it to be. The deal available was 50% off your meal at Noodle. Who wouldn’t want that? But looks can be deceiving.

The app also neglected to tell me I could only use one coupon per table despite the fact we all agreed to pay separately. Lastly, the app added its own gratuity to make sure the waiter received his tip, which kind of sucked because I felt it over-tipped his crappy service. So the question is does this app in my opinion fail or pass?
