Mobile social network Loopt announced on Monday that Loopt Mix is now a standalone application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Loopt Mix, a feature previously found within the original Loopt app, helps users of the location-based social network meet new people according to various criteria such as location and interests. The app is free for download from the App Store.
In other Loopt news, Techcrunch is reporting that the startup acquired GraffitiGEO, a Y Combinator company that incorporates gameplay into restaurant and business reviews. GraffitiGEO also has an augmented reality app in the works that overlays its review data over the live camera feed of an iPhone. As Techcrunch points out, this is an intuitive move by Loopt as the acquisition helps it cover some of the features it original product offering is missing.
