Motorola strives to focus its resources on breakthrough experiences. Sometimes, that means retiring services that are no longer uniquely solving a consumer problem. As of November 30, 2012, the Aloqa and Social Location applications by Motorola will be offline.

Since Aloqa’s launch in August 2009, many new apps have entered the location-based market or enhanced their functionality. Google Maps for Mobile actually offers a broader set of features leveraging a larger content base than Aloqa / Social Location currently provides. These have all been factors in our decision, so while we apologize for any inconvenience this causes you, we’re confident that the time and resources that this frees up will allow us to move forward even more quickly on developing new features and experiences.
