Description

Mobile businesses, such as food trucks, are always on the go. Nothing feels worse than walking up to a street corner and realizing that your favorite food truck has changed their location for the day. And unfortunately, all those other listings and apps are always so inaccurate! But now, there's a better way.

Mobile businesses can now use the LoudBeacon app to publicly broadcast their locations and offerings in real-time! No more guessing which food trucks are where in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood. Just open the LoudBeacon app and see them all in a glance.

Mobile Business Operators! Start broadcasting your business on the app, it's easy! Just set up an account and start broadcasting yourself with the touch of a button. And when you're done for the day? Turn it off with another tap. And best of all, it's free!

Disclaimer: If you are using the "Broadcast" functionality, this app may use your location even when it isn’t open, which can decrease device battery life.

Works but hogs battery.

App requires access to location data at all times and continually retrieves this data while in the background. iPhone 6 and after using the app for ~1 min to see food trucks near me yesterday for lunch, this app has consume 32% of my battery in the last 24 hours for background location retrieval according to the battery usage statistics in settings. I haven't looked into their privacy policy but there is certainly the possibility they are selling this data to advertisers.

App does function as advertised while using it though, so give me an option to enable location data only while using the app and you'll get 5 stars.

Hello!

Thank you for the feedback! I'm happy to tell you that we recently launched an update that has corrected this issue. Users are now able to use the app while their location service is set to the "While Using" setting. The battery drain issue has also been resolved!

Sorry for any confusion and concern this may have caused! Your privacy is very important to us. We do NOT sell any user data.

NOTE: If you choose to broadcast yourself, we will still require the "Always" setting to ensure accurate broadcast locations. But if you aren't broadcasting your location, you don't have to worry! :)

Thanks again, and we hope you'll continue to use the LoudBeacon app!

Very good and accurate

I like the feature which allows the vendors to set the duration of their business. This way, the customers are not misinformed.

The only problem is that it can use the location info of the user even when the app is in the background.

Hi there!

Thank you for the feedback! I'm happy to tell you that this issue has been resolved in our latest version, LoudBeacon v1.5. You are now able to use the app with location services set to "While Using." That means the app will NOT be collecting location info while in the background.

NOTE: If you choose to broadcast your location, you will still need to set your location service to the "Always" setting. This is required to ensure accurate broadcasts.

Thanks!
