You may have noticed the evolution in the last few major updates for Loopt. We initially added Places content to Loopt so you could find the right restaurants, bars, etc. to go to once you’ve met up with your nearby friends. Our next major update incorporated Events to provide you with comprehensive, real-time info on concerts, shows, etc. happening nearby (complete with music clips). With this update, we are making sure you can easily view these Places and Events on the same Map tab where you see where your friends are. We’ve always thought maps are the easiest way to visualize information on what’s going on around you, so now you can check out who’s around, what to do, and where to go ALL on a single screen.
Here’s what’s new in this latest version of Loopt for the iPhone and iPod touch:
- Improved Map tab shows local events and places results from Pulse in addition to friends
- Filter Pulse tab results by keywords or categories (restaurants, bars, coffee, family)
- General performance enhancements
