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?  (more…)

Updates: Foursquare’s Explore Feature Enhanced and AIM Gets Complete Redesign


Today, there are updates available for Foursqaure and the official AIM application through Google Play. For Foursquare, they are currently enhancing the Explore feature and have set their goals on making sure you find the best spots to hang out near your current position. By utilizing your friend’s check-ins and photo uploads, it displays this on a Google Map, letting you know where to head for a good time. On top of that, they have also implemented the fancy hidden menu and slide panel UI which we are always in love with. To see the full changelog, check out the What’s New section in Google Play.  (more…)

Contest: It’s National Cheeseburger Day – Tell Us Your Favorite Burger, Win a Nexus 7 8GB (Update: Winner Picked)

In case you didn’t know, today is National Cheeseburger Day. To someone like me, a self-proclaimed cheeseburger guru, this is one of the greatest “holidays” of the year, because it means that I’m on my way to gorging myself on the finest burgers that Portland has to offer. But being that I’m in the tech industry and travel quite often to cities across this beautiful country, I’m always on the hunt for the best burger in the next city that I visit. So in the most selfish of ways, I’m using the DL community to find out where your favorite burger spots are, so that if I end up visiting a town near you, I’ll have a list of spots to check out.

But to make it worth your while, I figured we’d give away a Nexus 7 8GB to one of the lucky readers that leaves a comment. Sound good?   (more…)

Temple Run Update Introduces Wallpapers Via Store – Foursquare Brings Us a Map During Check-ins


Two of the more popular Android apps on the block, Temple Run and Foursquare, received updates last evening. For Runners, you finally get to purchase game-themed wallpapers in the store, assuming you have enough coinage. There are three of them:  the Evil Demon Monkeys (pictured above), Temple Wall, and Guy Dangerous. Along with the new ‘papers, “all sorts of improvements and bug fixes” were also included.

Foursquarians, the app now has a mini-map that is displayed when you hit the “Check In” button. Seems like something we should have had ages ago, but nevertheless, we’ll take it.
