FourSquare [Explore Your City]

FourSquare is a great mobile application that connects you and your friends in exploring your city. You would use foursquare to “check-in”, which is a way of telling us your whereabouts by your phone. When you check-in someplace, we’ll tell your friends where they can find you and recommend places to go & things to do nearby. People check-in at all kind of places – cafes, bars, restaurants, parks, homes, offices. You can earn badges by check-in at a particular place more then others. Once FourSquare determines that you are the person who most frequents a place, you are declared the Major!

To start you would download the application onto either you iPhone, Blackberry, Android or a Palm. If you are not using anyone of these phones but you have web access you could use the mobile website directly. If you have a phone that doesn’t have a web browser, you can use our SMS shortcode to check-in by sending messages to 50500 (like this: @ Hana Sushi ! enjoying happy hour and spicy tuna).
What makes this all worthwhile is that local businesses will increasingly offer specials and exclusive discounts to confirmed Mayors. So whip out that phone and connect with your friends, explore your city and make new acquaintances.
