Current StateAs you have probably realized by now, LooLoo service has huge potential and possibilities of its further development are only limited by one’s imagination. At the moment, the 0.2 version of LooLoo is being released and it shows only a glimpse of its power. For current version and testing purposes we have hardcoded a bunch of users and places around Mountain View, California. So far, the following features have been developed:
Place infoYou can access additional information about a certain place point by bringing it into focus and selecting point info from phone’s menu. At this moment, you can read name of the place, description, and initial rank.
Filter users by preferencesWhen filtering users by preferences you can set your matching criteria (0-100%), so that search only shows interesting candidates.
Login/LogoutAfter logging in, user gets unique session ID that allows him service usage. Logout deletes session ID.
Radius of search and matching percentageAllows you to select the radius of searched area and matching percentage parameter.
RefreshUpdates your current position and positions of other users on the map.
Edit profileYou can change your initial account settings in the edit profile menu.
Focused pointsBy clicking left/right on the jog dial of your mobile phone while in search view you can cycle through available points on the map.
Person infoYou can access additional information about a certain human point by bringing it into focus and selecting point info from phone’s menu. At this moment, you can find out user’s gender, year of birth, occupation, taste in movies, music taste and book taste.
Filter places by preferencesTypes of places shown on the map are directly correlated with the ones selected in your place preferences page of your profile.
Initial visual identityWhole set of specifically designed icons that match current android color scheme.
Future visionThe service is far from being finished. We have internally discussed about many of the following features and though they are not still implemented, you can expect to see most of them in the very next update of our service.
More choicesPlan is to have much better categorization and smoother differentiation of preferences in order to fully characterize a user.
Review and ranking modelAt this moment, place information consists of a place name, place description and initial rank. Future plans include adding community driven ranking and reviews of places. The idea of review and ranking model that will separate the good places from the bad ones exists but has not been implemented yet.
DirectionsOption that will color user’s route to the desired place point on the map and connect with an external GPS application that will guide user throughout the way.
Adding placesThis will allow users to add places to the LooLoo’s main server database.
Favorite placesPossibility of selecting several favorite places (favorite restaurant, favorite night club, favorite theater, etc.) and hharing them with users that have similar interests.
Privacy levelsImplementation of different privacy levels that will allow users to determine which information they wish to share with other users.
SecurityImplementation of SSL during login to service.
Possibility of showing only people/placesAdding Radio group or menu item that will enable user to filter search results by people or places
People clusteringVery useful option that will improve map readability in dense population areas in great measure. It will group from 10 to 100 people with same interests into one spot.
Theme implementationAllowing user to fully change visual identity of application and adjust it according to his/her preferences.
