Collaborate and Organize Better with Loop
01 / COLLABORATE
Securely create and share messages, tasks, rich content, media, and more with friends, family, and co-workers. Changes to content within Loop get updated automatically. No more copy-paste and manual updates between apps required.
02 / ORGANIZE
Easily drag-n-drop and organize blocks of content within Loop to create your own "apps" based on what is most important to you. A family app, a friends app, a project app...the possibilities are endless! Let Loop’s block technology do the heavy lifting.
03 / EXTEND
Can’t find what you need in Loop’s block store? Developers can use Loop APIs to create and publish their own block types. Earn dollars through “in block” purchases and subscription fees (coming soon). Not a developer? Contact us with your suggestions and we will put it on the list!
Loop uses the block model instead of the app model.
Think of blocks as "micro-apps" but much more.
Apps are not naturally connected to each other. Blocks are made of other blocks and are automatically inter-connected and infinitely shareable.
Apps requires development skills to create customized versions. Blocks can be created via drag-n-drop using pre-existing Block Types developed by others.
Apps are limited to the operating system or platform they are made for. Blocks can work on any mobile or web browser that supports the Loop framework.
Apps are good for Games, business tools, and 100% offline software. Blocks are good for Data-centric uses, cross-platform collaboration and community building.

THE BLOCK STORE
Loop is currently in “Beta” and the following block types are available. Check back again as this list is growing rapidly!
Extend and Earn. Coming soon, developers will be able to create their own block types and make them available to Loop users via Loop’s block store. Check back again for more information on Loop’s developer program.
LOOP's BLOCK TECHNOLOGY
The Loop platform enables an instantiated collection of objects called blocks. A block is an instantiation of a class of block types. The power of Loop block technology comes from the fact that blocks can have other blocks as properties, which creates an extremely modular and interoperable structure.
Each block has a type associated with it. Simple types include Text and Numbers. Complex types are so feature-rich that they can even replace the apps of today. Therefore, blocks are like micro-apps within Loop, with the added bonus of being built up of Blocks.
TRADITIONAL APP MODEL
In addition, using this modular architecture, complex apps can be broken down into simple transportable pieces. Take embedding a quote from a document for example. Today, one option is to link to the document, so that readers can find the original document. Another option is to copy and paste the quote itself, which creates redundancy and requires extra work to keep the quote updated. With Loop however, one can embed a Quote Block (quote1) directly into one’s Document Block (document1). Each time a user changes quote1, document1 will automatically inherit the change!

The founders of Loop believe in transparent, ethical coding practices. You can access a “read-only” version of Loop code through our Github repository.
PRIVATE LABEL VERSIONS OF LOOP
Organizations and individuals may request a license to create and use their own private label versions of the Loop platform. In general, the core Loop platform and in-house built block types are available as part of this license. Additional sub-licensing arrangements may be required if usage of third-party block types is needed. We reserve the right to allow or deny such requests.
Please contact us for more information.
The Loop platform is brought to you by Louis Birla and Birla International LLC. Our vision is to create an ethical, safe, sustainable, open, and interoperable app ecosystem that transcends today’s large tech company wars and allows those in need to be able to access technology for little or no cost. That said, Loop needs to make money in order to fulfill our vision. Therefore in the future, Loop (through its block store) will have a commercial model that enables us to sustain ourselves as a company.
