With it’s latest update Foursquare has added tap and hold check-ins to allow users to quickly check-in. With each update Foursquare looks to be working towards simplifying the check in process so you can get back to your date or night out with friends.
How it works
When you tap the check in button and see a list of places, just press and hold the place you’re at. You’ll see a green bar glide across the top of the screen and that’s it, you’re checked in. How cool is that? The instant check in.
TIP: You can also long press the blue button at the top of the screen when the app opens.
What about Photos?
For those who are a bit old-fashioned you still have the ability to check in the old way. Nothing changes here, add a photo, some text, tag your friends.
I like how Foursquare is making it easier to check in. The new feature is a great example of increasing the quality of user experience by reducing the number of steps the user is required to complete a goal.
