    I just read on iPhoneAlley that loopt actually spams your contacts via sms. Has anyone had any problems with this yet? I have loopt and love it so far but wasn't aware it was doing this. So, I just deleted it. I hope the developers of this app remove this asap.

    I haven't had it spam me, but it does send you updates via SMS on certain things like them leaving you a comment. If the person doesn't want to get these alerts, you can easily turn themoff within the app. I haven't had it text me anything that I did not know I would be receiving.

    It doesn't spam you. It actually spams everyone on your contact list with an sms asking them to join loopt. I don't think that's cool at all.

    wow that sucks. I haven't had anyone complain to me about that, but I'll be sure to ask around and see.
