Foursquare
(5 reviews)

Foursquare is a service that helps you keep track of the places that you visit. Foursquare is available on many devices, such as iPhone, Blackberry, and Android. Every time you visit a place, you "check in" to the place to earn points and badges. Over time, you will acquire a history of places you visit as well as badges. You can share your history with your friends. People have created visualizations of Foursquare check-ins, e.g. WeePlaces and 4sqMaps.

I like to play with foursquare when visiting places and reading the tips others have posted about a place. I also use Google Places for reviews and suggestions.

Combined with Momento, a very powerful app that helps you track your visited locations, and also helps you find out if there are any friends in the neighborhood and what tips others and friends had on a visiting location.

Fast and easy to use, definitely worth a try!

As mentioned by others, their API helps developers build lots of other tools on top of it, so more things will sureley show up!

I use Foursquare a lot. It's a funny way to discover places, add photos on places and even discover you can meet friends who are where you are !

I love using foursquare whenever I go out to a venue or even sometimes a highway. Because foursquare's API is available, there are lots of cool, free tools that can help you visualize your accumulated foursquare data in cool ways. I don't really use foursquare for the social element, I like to let my checkins pile up and then look for trends or see them on different types of maps! I recommend it. Foursquare also integrates withother iphone apps, so you can remotely check in from an app that will have additional functionality (sonar, for example).
