FINALLY – You Can Add Pictures and Video to Foursquare!!

screen1One of the biggest lacking functions of the ever growing in popularity Foursquare check-in app was the inability to add pictures as you checked-in.  A glaring missing and fundamental element, one might even say.

Finally, things have changed.  Pickchur and 39 Inc. have paired up to create an app which allows you to add pics AND videos to your Foursquare check-ins. Now we are cookin’!  The new app is named, oddly enough, SquarePik!

Adding pictures and video to your check-ins makes Foursquare a much more complete app. for the user.

If you are not familiar with Foursquare and want to know more about it, check out my post the Top 10 Ideas on how Realtors can use Fourquare. (PS check out the comments section on this one, the fors and againsts of Foursquare are discussed here)

The app is $1.99 in the app store.  (App BONUS: did you know Amazon now has a KINDLE App for the iPhone! Yup, read your Kindle books on your iPhone, I just read BOLD by Gary Keller this weekend on the plane and loved it!)
