Posted by at 12:36 pm on November 8, 2010

Loopt today announced it has launched Loopt in the Windows Phone Marketplace.   This version of Loopt was specifically designed to take full advantage of Windows Phone 7’s unique user experience.

“With this application, people can instantly see what’s going on around you, right now, and connect with friends face-to-face. Without even opening Loopt, the Windows Phone Live Tiles constantly update with friends’ locations, comments and “Pings.” Loopt has a unique ability to bring out the unexpected -“ like uncovering the people you know and popular places around you -“ creating social serendipity.

Features of the Windows Phone 7 Loopt

  • Social map – See where your friends are right now on a map; discover places your friends like to visit.
  • Updates and photos – Quickly share your updates with friends, and optionally include photos with your updates. Also, check out friends’ photos and places they’ve been, and view their updates as they move around town.
  • Ping friends – Instead of going through the hassle of sending mass “Where are you?” text message, have friends connect with you on Loopt and “Ping” them when you want to meet up. When they respond (with a “Pong”), your map will light up with friends’ locations and updates. In less than a minute, you find out where your friends are, and you can arrange to get together.
  • Privacy controls – Only share your location with the people you want, when you want. Privacy is a fundamental design and functional priority for Loopt.
