Review of Loopt.com

At some event I attended, I received a card that said I could get 5 free songs from Loopt.com if I downloaded the app to my mobile phone. I decided to check out the website first before committing to adding an app that is difficult to remove. On the site, I didn’t see any button for downloading music, and the main page was a blog post about “smartphone intervention week.” I thought this must be urging people to put away their phones for a week, but no…it was propaganda urging people to abandon their current phones and buy smartphones. Surprisingly, this has been “liked” by 75 people. This is called advertising, people. It is not news or culture. I threw the card away.
