With regularity, I am asked which app is my fave on the iPhone. Without hesitation, I respond with *Foursquare*.
I’m a Check-In freak. Restaurants, gas stations, people’s houses, towns…. you name it. It’s better than Facebook Places, and already retailers are getting on board with providing discounts for people who check into their establishments. It’s quite possibly the best location-based social app.
I love that I can check out the specials near me, and that even drives me to stop in at places I wasn’t expecting to stop at.
Sure, it’s handy for social planning, but its niche will be in retailer advertising, not in helping you meet up with peeps.
I love that I can control the privacy features with better granularity than FB Places. Because, really, some things just aren’t for all eyes :-D
Foursquare: not just for iPhone users, it’s available on all platforms. You need it. The more people checking in, the faster retailers will launch service discounts for Foursquare users. Giddy up!!
Now if only it had better camera controls ;-)
