Loopt Mix lets users connect with nearby users

Loopt iPhone updated

Loopt on Monday unveiled Loopt 1.1, adding the new Loopt Mix feature. This new opt-in feature uses location-based services to allow iPhone users to connect with people nearby. Loopt Mix is for users who want to meet new people near them whether it be at a conference, in a club, or in their neighborhood. Users can set up a customized public profile, browse nearby profiles or search by shared interest and community membership. Messages are sent via email and do not identify a user's full name, exact location, email address or phone number, which leaves the user in control of releasing personal information.

Loopt works with communities such as, TechCrunch, imeem, and Rock the Vote. Users can add these brand badges to their profiles and then find and connect with other like-minded community members. Adding in the Loopt Mix features allows users to find other members of the community in their area so they can meet for conferences, concerts or other events.

Loopt is available for free in the App Store, but is currently only available in the United States.
