Foursquare Update Allows You to Check-in Your Friends

foursquare update

Foursquare – yes the social check-in app is still alive and well – announced that a newly released update for their mobile apps will introduce their “most-requested feature” ever. Any guesses on what that may be? Well, since I mentioned it in the title, you probably get it. Dammit. Anyways, yes, Foursquare now allows you to check-in your friends! Did you really all request this? 

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • When you check-in and choose the “I’m with…” button, you can add friends just like you always have. But now, when you press the “Check in Here” button, Foursquare will notify your friend that you are trying to check them in. If they’d like to allow you to do that, they can go ahead and approve this action. Going forward, they will always be checked in should their friends add them to a check-in.
  • What if your friend beat you to the punch? If you check in at the same place, before or after the friend check-in, yours will be the only one Foursquare shows. So you can always get your photo in, or tell everyone what you’re doing.
  • You’ll get a notification every time a friend checks you in. Don’t want to be checked in? Foursquare added an easy delete button so you can get rid of it with one tap.

And that’s that. Go check-in somewhere and try it.

    I see you switched back to or kept Fleksy


    Use it in Vegas like I did on my honeymoon. Free drinks/deals everywhere! Works at Chuck E Cheese too for free tokens!

    I love Foursquare! Even more so when I check into a restaurant or event and see I get something for free if I tell them about it.

      I had 20% off the whole bill at one restaurant. And other places just give you 10% off for checking in. It varies from place to place, but worth utilizing it.

    Not that I used it much (read: at all) recently, but this just solidifies that I’m only going to leave it on my phone so I can check into locations on Untappd…

  • I love foursquare on its own, but even more because lots of people thing its dead yet its one of the best designed apps.
