There is a new version of Loopt for the BlackBerry out with some pretty cool new features…  My favorite being the ability to launch Loopt directly from your contacts.  The map is also its own tab now, making it easier to locate your friends.

For those of you not familiar with Loopt, it is basically a Location Based Service / Social Networking application all wrapped up into one…

Loopt shows users where friends are located and what they are doing via detailed, interactive maps on their mobile phones. Loopt helps friends connect on the fly and navigate their social lives by orienting them to people, places and events. Users can also share location updates, geo-tagged photos and comments with friends in their mobile address book or on online social networks, communities and blogs. Loopt was designed with user privacy at its core and offers a variety of effective and intuitive privacy controls.

Loopt is a free BlackBerry download that you can pick up on BlackBerry App World or by downloading it directly to your BlackBerry via the link below.
