Aloqa Beta Updated – Find Interesting places & Events Near You

We mentioned Aloqa a bit back when it was in beta but it was limited to the Curve 8900 and Bold 9000. Now the app is out of Beta and is available for a broader range of devices including the Tour, 83XX series, 88XX series, 87XX series, and 8520. The app is now also feeding you information in the US, Canada, & Austria.

Aloqa supposedly lets you find interesting places, events, & friends near you. I am not sure exactly how it pulls that off but supposedly they are fed information from Facebook Connect, Yelp, Eventful,, Wikipedia, Craigslist, Topix, Fon, Coulomb Technologies, GreatDad, Google Maps API, Qype, Call-A-Bike, Nestoria, and BeLocal.

It looks like a pretty interesting app if you want to give it a spin and the price is right (free). Check it out at and let me know what you find!

  1. I’ve had version 0.961 for months, and I stil see the same version

  2. I downloaded the aloqa for bb curve 8330 and have been using it for a couple days now. Seems to work pretty good as far as determining my position and locating different types of ‘stuff’ based on the channel you select. I seem to be having, however, a hard time finding the option to change the frequency of positioning updates. My girlfriend has an android phone and in one of the settings there is a slider to change the frequency of updates, but I have yet to find where…if you happen to find the place to change it, i’d be interested to see it.
