Company Details

Update

Aloqa is a mobile service that proactively notifies users about interesting places, services, events, and people close to where they are. Once you download and start Aloqa, you need to just look at your phone and it shows you live information about interesting things in your vicinity like your favorite coffee shops, highly rated restaurants, local bargains and coupons, Facebook friends in the vicinity, even kid friendly events. When you change locations, Aloqa refreshes itself automatically and notifies you of the relevant set of services, points of interest, events, and friends close to your new location. Wherever you are, whenever you go.

In addition, Aloqa provides an API for easy development of location-based services, especially for proactive and community oriented applications. Examples contain detecting automatically the proximity of two mobile targets (such as Facebook friends), sorting a buddy list by current distance and automatically updating the list as well as clique observation (show me when 3 out of 5 of my myspace girlfriends are nearby).
