Here at the BlackBerry Developer Conference, Loopt have announced a major update to their free BlackBerry app. The Loopt application is a location based services app that connects relevant people and placing while constantly running in the background.

Today we got a demo of Loopt by Sam Altman, CEO of Loopt, to show off the latest features as RIM announce their latest location services. The app now offers dynamically-generated, relevant local content about places and events from some of the best sources on the Web to help users meet up with nearby friends, explore new places to grab food, and find local events happening now. Feature highlights include:

  • Discover the best places and events, including those rated highly by your friends on Pulse.
  • See where your friends are on maps – view their latest updates listed in real-time and comment on them.
  • Check-in to instantly share your updates with friends – easily update Facebook and Twitter with your photos and places in one Loopt check-in.
  • Browse and rate local places and events – peruse detailed information from Zagat, Citysearch, and the Loopt community.
  • Save money through special offers from nearby retailers with local coupons.

Loopt is available for free for the BlackBerry Curve 8900, BlackBerry Bold 9000, and the BlackBerry Tour on App World.

More on the latest location services for BlackBerry

Comments

The latest location services from RIM offer some great implications for BlackBerry apps.

The latest location services from RIM use cell tower triangulation to help with location based apps. Using cell tower triangulation, you can get location services inside a building where you wouldn’t normally get a GPS signal.

Another feature of the new location services is that it leverages a community generated database of information. An example of this is pictured above where a map displays all the available cell towers around the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco.

For a good example of an app that leverages these new services, check out Loopt in App World.
