San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
PlacePop – a mobile application that provides a virtual loyalty card to replace paper and swipe cards for local businesses – is now available for Android phones. This free application can now be used on any iPhone or Android handset worldwide.
PlacePop provides a way for consumers to collect a virtual loyalty card for every place they visit, to share places with their friends on Facebook and Twitter, and to discover the places their friends like to go. PlacePop’s virtual loyalty cards work just like the paper “punch cards” that businesses commonly use to track purchases, but these “virtual” cards are powered by GPS-enabled check-ins on a mobile phone, instead of stamps or punches.
By using PlacePop to record their visits to certain businesses, consumers earn stamps for their cards, and start to upgrade through higher levels of loyalty status: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Business owners can use PlacePop’s simple online tools to set up their loyalty program, and choose at what status levels they want to reward their customers.
PlacePop’s free Android app offers the following core features:
- Collect virtual loyalty cards for any place in the world
- Check in when you visit to earn bronze, silver, gold and platinum cards
- Share places, photos and notes with your friends
