I was really excited to see Foursquare update, especially since I’ve been starting to play it a little more. While my main check ins are home and work, it’s been somewhat addictive. The only thing I do once in a while is forget to check in. For those of you who don’t know what foursquare is, let me attempt to explain.
Foursquare is a game/network/GPS type app. I can only explain that it’s gps based, you check into different locations, the more friends you have the more fun it is, and it can be interesting to watch your friends “check in”. I know that I recommended it to friends and have seen some of them get extremely creative.
You can share tips, tell your friends what to order, what you like, and some merchants participate by offering a special for the “mayor” of their facility. They post a sign, you show you’re mayor on your BlackBerry and you are rewarded. It also makes it more fun than Latitude because you can check in and score points.
The only new update feature I noticed is a tab for tips, but if you notice something else, please share. I’ve included some pics for you. If you have Foursquare, get your app updated. If you haven’t tried it, it’s free, it’s fun, it’s Foursquare, so go download it now and find out what everyone is tweeting about.
If you have foursquare, share your thoughts, and if you are thinking about it, share your hesitation or your questions.
