Discover places you'll love!

Rating: ★★★★☆

looloo is a must-have app for anyone who wants to explore Metro Manila and visit all of its best places! It's the best app for foodies, spa junkies, nightlife lovers - anyone who loves going out!  When this was announced some time last year by the same guys that brought you TrafficDito (I think), my interest died down when I read the line "who wants to explore Metro Manila".  Why?  Because I am not based in Makati anymore and I thought I could not use it.  I told myself though maybe I should try it but never really came to the point of tapping the FREE button to install the app.


The app though is beautifully designed judging from the screenshots and I am on the verge switching to Microsoft, all the way.  If this thing will work around Tagbilaran, I don't want to get hooked on this when I leave iOS and move on to Windows Phone.



Last night though made me try the app once and for all.   I tried it first on my sister's Lumia 710 running Windows Phone 7.5 and it looked amazing.  I love responsive websites, and this one is no exception.  It has a very pretty UI and you could actually search the looloo database by just using your browser.


Aside from a very pretty UI via the browser, the app itself is very clean and crisp.  I like the choice of color combination and its typography.

I was surprised there are already quite a number of establishments saved in the looloo database here in Tagbilaran City.  I cannot wait to use the app and review restaurants (mostly).  I think it's an alternative to Fourquare, better yet — a better alternative.  There's no need to be paranoid about losing your mayorships here.


Tiny-bit-of-an-update:

You can still use looloo.com to read reviews and ratings and this is usually how it would look like.

Frontpage (Mobile)

Frontpage (Desktop)

Enter your location and looloo will automatically pull listings based on your location or you can also input the name of the place you're searching for if you're looking for a specific place.

Reviews & Ratings

I highly doubt that they would come to Windows Phone but I do hope so.  Coming to Windows Phone or not, looloo is a pin worthy web app on your start screen.
