Sam was interviewed by CNN Money this week discussing the iPad and demoing the new Loopt Pulse app for the iPad. Although you can't put it in your pocket, Sam
sees the iPad as a game-changer in location-based services.
Loopt has always been about discovering the world around you. With the Loopt app, we help you immediately connect to the friends, places, and events that matter the most to you while you’re on the go. With the Loopt Mix app, we introduce you to the people nearby that you wish you knew so you can make new friends. With the brand new Loopt Pulse app for the iPad, we’re now letting you explore places to go and things to do with your friends in beautiful photo and map views before you even step out the door.
As Sam says, “[The iPad] is the first device with an interface that makes photos the natural way to interact with information...it will sit somewhere between the mobility of a cell phone and a laptop and so we tried to design Loopt Pulse to fit that mode of functionality. [Loopt Pulse] is a great experience when you’re sitting at home on a couch, it’s a great experience when you’re sitting at Starbucks trying to figure out where you’re going to go next...”
