Aloqa for BlackBerry - Find interesting info on local events and friends


Aloqa for BlackBerry

Aloqa for BlackBerry is a free beta application that will enable you to get information on local events and friends in a mobile friendly way. The information is gathered from Facebook Connect, Yelp, Eventful, last.fm, Wikipedia, Craigslist, Topix, Fon, Coulomb Technologies, GreatDad, Google Maps API, Qype, Call-A-Bike, Nestoria to and BeLocal and it is presented to you on your BlackBerry mobile phone. Here is the description right from the website:
Aloqa is based on a simple belief: It is hard to "search" on your mobile phone. When you are on the go, you shouldn't have to constantly keep using your phone as a browser to pull information. Instead, you should just be proactively informed of things around you that you care about. Wherever you are. Without entering a keyword. Or your location. With Aloqa, you can just look at your phone and without ever touching your keyboard see what's around you in real time:
  • Your favorite coffee shop(s) closest to you.
  • Fast food places you like.
  • Gas stations near you.
  • Friends from your social network in the vicinity.
  • Parties, movies, theaters, activities around you.
  • Places to take your kids.
  • Wifi Hotspots.
  • Potential dates or business contacts in your neighborhood (if you want to know!).

After installing Aloqa on our BlackBerry Bold in order to test the application we played with it a bit, or to be honest we played a lot and I personally was surprised by the amount of information this app collected for me based on the GPS location. From bars and restaurants to outlets and ongoing sales. All in all we highly recommend this application especially for travelers and people who find themselves in a new place. It is a good resource to learn what's around.

Here are some screenshots from Aloqa for BlackBerry:
