Entries from April 2009
One of the things I like most about foursquare (this week) is the conversation that happens “behind-the-scenes”. Oftentimes, I find myself talking to, asking questions about or recommending things to friends based on where we’ve recently been (checked-in).
I’ve started to notice on Twitter that others do this as well:
Foursquare is a better Dodgeball, for those who remember the now-defunct social-networking, texting, friend-locating mobile-phone app. The new iteration, rapidly being installed on iPhones across the city, is a fast route to a good night out. Download the app free at playfoursquare.com to track your friends’ locations (meaning no more rounds of “Where are you?” texts). It’s also a game, with goofy badges awarded to users who check in frequently. And most helpful, members share their ample nightlife experience; according to one enthusiast, the saffron Sazerac at Apotheke is the drink to get.
And we’re in the print edition as well: see page 55 of the April 13th issue!
