Loopt has been growing in numbers these days. And with that growth, comes the need to add more services to every platform they support. This time around, they are bringing additional options to BlackBerry users by adding in LooptPulse. LooptPulse is similar in some ways to that of Gowalla and Foursquare in the fact it allows you to check into places, leave tips and share information for others to view. LooptPulse also offers recommendations from their many partners. Event info comes from Metromix, Zvents, and SonicLiving and combines it with places info from Zagat, Citysearch and Tasting Table. Several other features have been added to the update, full breakdown below.
- 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!
