Loopt App for WP7 is now live on WP7 marketplace.Its built to take advantage of WP7â€™s unique user experience such as Live Tiles,etc. Here is the excerpt from press release.
â€œThe Windows Phone 7 Loopt app is distinctly different from any version weâ€™ve made,â€ said Sam Altman, co-founder and CEO of Loopt. â€œMicrosoft has created a smartphone experience that lets people get out of their phones and back to their lives. Loopt is all about using your phone as a tool to get out, find friends and socialize, and with this phone, Microsoft has opened up a new window into that valuable, social information.â€
Features of the Windows Phone 7 Loopt app include:
- Social map – See where your friends are right now on a map; discover places your friends like to visit.
- Updates and photos â€“ Quickly share your updates with friends, and optionally include photos with your updates. Also, check out friendsâ€™ photos and places theyâ€™ve been, and view their updates as they move around town.
- Ping friends – Instead of going through the hassle of sending mass â€œWhere are you?â€ text message, have friends connect with you on Loopt and â€œPingâ€ them when you want to meet up. When they respond (with a â€œPongâ€), your map will light up with friendsâ€™ locations and updates. In less than a minute, you find out where your friends are, and you can arrange to get together.
- Privacy controls â€“ Only share your location with the people you want, when you want. Privacy is a fundamental design and functional priority for Loopt.
