Aloqa, is a location based service that integrates content from 15 publishers including Yelp, Eventful and Craigslist. The beta, originally available for Android, is now available for for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 and the Bold 9000.

The app helps BlackBerry users in that it takes away the need to find information via the browser and it proactively pushes out recommendations about social network friends nearby and interesting local opportunities to users on the go. These are all qualities of a good LBS app.

Their are also some bright minds behind this app. The company is headed by CEO Sanjeev Agrawal, former Global Head of Google Product Marketing and subsequently VP Products at TellMe Networks (acquired by Microsoft).

Download Aloqa for free by visiting their site and filling out the form.

    I got that error message as well but I del it right away, del some progs I dont use, even though I had enough memory. Re-download and install w/o issues. I learn my lesson on with that error message before.

    Nice app!

    No problems on my T-Mo 8900 (4.6.1.250). The info seems pretty accurate but not all listings have a full address provided. It seems to use BB Maps, which again is dumb as even Poynt figured out the users prefer to use Google Maps. Not sure how much I will use this, but from the video above it could be very useful when in an unfamiliar city.
