Benefits AGLCA Mobile App
AGLCA has a
for our members! Key features include:
Improved mobile version of the website - A mobile version of the www.GreatLoop.org website that displays in a more user-friendly way than accessing it in a browser on a mobile device is included with the app. If you typically access the site on a mobile device, you’ll want to visit the site through the app instead of through a browser like Safari or Chrome.
“Meets” - Find other Loopers! - The app uses the GPS on your smart phone to show you (if you give it permission), and other Loopers who have granted permission, on a map. There are a few limitations that make sense when you understand why they are there. First, you are only displayed temporarily (maximum of 24 hours). This eliminates a problem of people forgetting their location is displayed and cluttering the map if they’re not currently cruising. We think it’s reasonable for those who want to be “visible” to log in once a day to continue to be seen and update their location. Second, you will only see other Loopers (who have made themselves visible) within a 200 mile radius.
Ability to fly our exclusive members-only burgee that identifies you as a Looper and
serves as a welcome mat when coming across other Loopers while cruising. The burgee is available for purchase once you become a member.
