Foursquare - An Addictive App for iPhone

  1. I was introduced to Foursquare app for iPhone in the middle of the year when I am using the iPhone 3GS. It has now became one of my favorite app.
  2. It has the ability to link with my Facebook and Twitter account. Thus, its easier to share the places with my friends. Its like voluntary way "to get yourselves being stalked"..!
  3. The client interface as shown below showed how simple it is to use the app. We have a choice either to check-in to the places which have been registered by others or we might add a "new" place. The location-based services of the iPhone will automatically detect the nearby places.
  4. Sometimes, we might noticed that there are several people already "checked-in" at that place at the same time. 
  5. For a traveller, you might want to find good tips regarding certain places (restaurant, shop, etc) which are being left by others (or you can leave tips too). There is also an option for "things-to-do", just in case, you might want to check out that place again. It serves a good reminder.
  6. Since the app links to the Google Map, it will help you to find the exact place. But sometimes, the place is not 100% correct due to the inaccuracy of the location based services. If this is the case, you can log-in to Foursquare website to edit that location map.
  7. There is also a summary the whereabouts of your friends.
