App Description**Please note, this a TechCrunch branded version of the Loopt application created for marketing and promotional use with the TechCrunch community at special events. This application contains the same features and functionality as the current version of Loopt also available in the App Store.
Loopt connects you with the world around you like never before! Pinch, tap and drag an interactive map to find where your friends are and what they're doing. Connect on the fly and instantly share photos and comments with all your friends and communities like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Discover nearby places and events recommended by friends and popular local services such as Yelp. You can always change your privacy settings if you don't want to be found. Turn your iPhone into a social compass and never be lonely, bored or hungry again!
And now, you can use our newest feature, Loopt Mix, to find and meet new people nearby. Opt-in to create a customized public profile, browse nearby profiles and message other Loopt Mix users via email. Messages sent via Loopt Mix do not display your full name, exact location, email address or phone number.
Loopt is supported on over 100 mobile devices across multiple carriers (including Verizon Wireless, MetroPCS, Sprint Nextel, & Boost Mobile) so you can share your location with all your friends and family. Loopt does not store or share your contact list with any 3rd parties. Data and messaging (including SMS text messages) plans are required. All SMS alerts from Loopt can easily be disabled in your privacy settings after your account has been verified.
