You can 'hide from everybody'. About the same.

LOOPT is great. Read over in the 3g iPhone threads 'cause someone decided to start a loopt thread there for some reason.

as far as i know, Loopt doesn't stalk you unless you press "update", as in it wont tell your friends or as we say on facebook: put an update item on your mini-feed. so just press home and loopt no longer does anything until the next time you open up the app, go to "what's up" and press update.

From what I've read, Loopt uses the SMS service to do its' job. Therefore, if you don't have unlimited text-messaging on your account, you might get a nasty surprise when your bill arrives.

...you meen to tell me that this app uses SMS? ...huh? ...i don't get that...

When someone pings you, you get text message letting you know. If you get pinged all day it can be quite a few text messages. So far I think the most I've gotten in a day is 25.

And as far as having to hit update for someone to locate you. I think yes for the most part. But a friend of mine stopped by tonight and we both just ran Loopt without updating and it showed us both within a block of each other. Before he dropped by, he was about 6 miles away. So, if you REALLY don't want someone to know where you are at, limit who you update to, or "hide from everybody".

I believe it updates any time you enter Loopt, hit update and if you are still in Loopt it auto updates (although I'm not sure how fast).
