The ultimate stalkers' app
by on October 1, 2010
See where your friends are and find out where they’ve been – that’s the basic premise of Foursquare. To many, location-based services are just a license for stalkers but to some apps like this have a genuine use – enabling people to see the places their friends rate highly and share experiences.
The main problem with Foursquare is that it needs your friends to get involved too – if they’re not signed up to the service, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll want to use it. There’s also new competition for Foursquare in the shape of Facebook Places – a similar tool but one that has the advantage of being integrated with the social network site (though Foursquare can also post updates to your Facebook wall).
The Ovi version of Foursquare is one of the slicker Nokia apps we’ve seen and it’s all very similar to versions on other handsets. This app certainly makes it easy to share your location and other information but, unless your friends and family are also Foursquare converts, you’ll find it of limited use.
