From the PR:
Loopt is a great source for local content; you can peruse detailed information from Zagat, Citysearch, and other content partners. But this update goes one step further: the new Loopt for BlackBerry now has Tips – a way for you to show off your expertise on your favorite places with the greater Loopt community.
Adding a Tip is really easy, just go to the Discover tab and select the place that you want to leave a Tip for. In the middle of this place screen is a blue speech bubble icon. Select it and you can type in your Tip – anything from commenting on dishes to service to decor goes. Make sure to select to share it on Twitter and then tap “Add Tip” to show off your local knowledge.
Curious where your friends are? Find them even faster on this latest version of Loopt! This update lets you launch Loopt directly from your BlackBerry’s contact list. If their location isn’t fresh, send them a ping: Loopt is the easiest way to figure out where your friends are!
