Loopt has released an update to its location-based social search app adding support for user-generated places. Loopt is an app designed for iOS users to see what’s happening around them among their friends and local venues similar to services such as Foursquare and Gowalla. Loopt however adds integrated features such as location-aware text messaging to connect with friends and find places to go when users are out and about and includes integration with Facebook Places so that Loopt users can check in to their Facebook profile and see what their Facebook friends are up to right from within the Loopt app. Version 4.2 now allows users to add public places or events directly from the app with an option to make the place visible to other Loopt users so that they can search for and check-in at that location. Loopt is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download.
