Loopt always pushes the envelope when it comes to social location based services and they have done it again today. They just added a new Pulse tab to their BlackBerry app which pull in Event info from Metromix, Zvents, and SonicLiving and combines it with Places info from Zagat, Citysearch, Tasting Table and more. Its a great way to see what is happening around you and what you should be doing instead of reading this article. 🙂
New in this update is:
- Loopt Pulse is even better at helping you plan your next move with new Events info from Metromix, Zvents, and SonicLiving
- Listen to music clips from concert Events and RSVP to see who else is going on Facebook!
- Search for Events and Places by date and distance around you, your friends, or specific places
- Share button on Events and Places to share them with friends
- Ping your friends directly from the Friends list to quickly find out where everyone is!
