Loopt has just released their most recent update to the popular location based service. The new update offers the ability to add "Tips" about the locations you share with the Loopt community. Leaving tips for others is a simple process, you just go to the Discover tab and select the place that you want to leave a tip for and enter the information which you can also then share on Twitter.
In addition to tips being added, Loopt has also included addressbook integration. So now you can launch Loopt directly from your contacts list which allows for faster access and easier lookup of all your friends. You will also notice maps now has it's own tab, a feature which has been requested for a while now.
