One of iTune’s top applications Loopt, has done it again. The first live geographical based application, which allows you to check in and see where all your friends are at that moment has created a new social networking app. LooptMix is a brand new application, and after a quick registration, allows you to meet others in your area.
The new application has been a feature of the original Loopt application for quite some time now and has now decided it’s time to branch off on it’s own. The app will allow users to connect with other people in their area with similar interests. Let’s say for example, you and a group of friends are at the park and are about to play a game of basketball. However, you are short a person or two. Well now with LooptMix, you are able to log to see who is nearby and enjoys playing basketball. You are then able to have a live stream chat from the app inviting them to come play or have any conversation.
According to Loopt’s blog the new app will feature:
-Free messaging with people around the country on Loopt Mix!
– Browse profiles of interesting people near you.
– Real-time, in-app chat with push notifications.
– Post multiple photos and status updates to introduce yourself.
– Use likes / tags and search filters to connect in the real world.
The application is very easy to use and figure out. No matter your reasoning for downloading the app, whether it is to find new friends, maybe that special someone, or even a new business partner, it’s a very interesting and fun app to use. You are able to turn on and off privacy setting which will allow other users to find your profile. And you can also make a specific search, so if you are looking for a date, you can search for people who are there for dating and search an age range and/or specific activity as well. The application is now available on iTunes for free.
