We use 'LOCO' as the name of any location/geopoint. The idea & service has been developed by a small team of passionate entrepreneurs living in parallel reality, aka WareNinja
* Extra info for curious users;
LOCO as a word means 'crazy' in Spanish language, and when you say 'LOCO8', the sound resembles 'locate' and 'craziness' all together
If YOU are at that location, this makes it interesting enough..!
You can tag & share & discover any LOCO mainly to please the question "Why you are there?"
For example, when you tag a LOCO it appears like " @LOCO-nickname tagged this LOCO with ['tag1', 'tag2'] " e.g. @WareNinja TAGled this LOCO with [ best mexican food! | Zuper HOT..! ]
Private user information is/will NEVER be shared anywhere, we respect your privacy!
We have nicely integrated with Facebook's API; seamless login and frictionless sharing is in core of our apps.
LOCO8 doesNOT store any sensitive profile information or your credentials on the backend side, neither on the client side! Facebook integration is mainly to leverage the Open Graph capabilities to apply social design approach in our service!
The key information we use is your unique Facebook id together with very basic profile information, the service flows are implemented carefully to be compliant with Facebook Open Graph API policies.
Responsive WEB is on its way, it will be ready to serve sooner than later!
iOS (IPhone+IPad) client is on our roadmap, we need your patience and support...
Details are here
Service flow and use-case has been completely revised, better to say, redefined! Hope you enjoy LOCO8 and future revisions...
Thereby, please share your comments, feedback, suggestions... share, write, scream, shout, jump around..!
Ah btw, developers are the most welcome to join our hackathons, we can provide early access to our API too
LOCO8 ninjas are crunching so hard to add new features, we have lots of things we dream to do.
