Aloqa adds several new features to location-aware app [VIDEO]

Location-awareness Android app? Yeah, that’s been done; plenty of times. But Aloqa wants you to know that it has a few tricks up its sleeves to make you consider using its location app.

Aloqa also performed what’s arguably an Android first: adding support for the Facebook “Like” button to share content with friends. Below is a run-through of Aloqa as seen at Google I/O.
