Boost Mobile, the hip-hop-themed pre-paid service from Sprint Nextel, has the tagline “Where you at?” This grammatically frightening phrase now has meaning, as Boost has partnered with Loopt to launch a mobile friend finder.
Just download the little Java app to your phone, set permissions, add your like-Boosted friends who’ve done the same and you’ll all be able to find each other on an on-screen map in real time. Scroll through locations and send messages, all using Nextel’s built-in GPS functionality.
You can then mingle together into a menacing, tough-looking gang of K-Fed look-alikes and “holla” things such as “whaddup?” and “you trippin’, dawg” and look foolish doing so.
Loopt, which works as it’s own app, will be free for current Boost members.
