AppLoop Ends Mobile Advertising Service


Iphone facebookADOTAS — We’ve been talking a lot about mobile advertising lately, so I was disappointed when I heard one interesting startup suddenly disappear.

AppLoop (don’t bother going to the website, it’s down) was a platform that could track and advertise on mobile applications, using the iPhones GPS. The ad network was able to tell if a customer was close to an advertiser’s business and show ads connected to it.

Apparently, the company ran into financial and legal issues.

I hope someone else picks this up and figures out how to monetize it. As long as I opt-in for the ads, say I’m heading to restaurant row and ads show for types of cuisine I’m near, I think it would be cool.
