You even have the ability to view traffic delays on the same map by hitting the Menu button to switch between different map modes.Now you can see why your friends are so late for your lunch date.The List tab provides you with a list of your friends sorted by name or distance.



As I’ve noted recently, one big downside of check-in apps is that there’s no real way to “check-out” — that is, let your friends know you’ve left a venue.While continually updating location apps like Loopt failed to catch on in a major way due to the earlier i Phone limitations, check-in based apps like Foursquare and Gowalla have gotten traction recently by getting around this limitation because they explicitly make a user check-in at a venue.The idea became so popular that in November of last year that Loopt pivoted away from implicit location, to this check-in model with version 2.0 of its app.This background location features offers something else cool: if Loopt sees that a friend of yours (using background location) is nearby, it can send you a Push Notification to alert you of that.

It’s worth noting that the i Phone limitation wasn’t the only thing keeping background location from taking off.

Well, when you check-in to a venue, there is a new “Live Location” area at the bottom of the check-in screen.
