Navigating the Big Easy has never been so easy, thanks to MeNetwork, a handy cellphone service that sends out timely updates on deals at hotels, restaurants and other destinations in New Orleans and beyond. The free information is sent only if the traveler asks for it — no spamming here — and it shows up as text or via iPhone, iPad and Android apps, so it’s easy to access. New Orleans is just one of the latest destinations to be added to the network, which includes 70 cities from coast to coast. Free, www.themenetwork.com
