Making the most of Foursquare

How to use Foursquare with your smartphone or tablet

  1. Sign up using your email address or Facebook account.
  2. Activate your device’s GPS function. When you make a stop, open the Foursquare app to find the nearest locations. Using the honor system, only “check in” where you are visiting.
  3. Link the app to your Twitter account to have your check-ins tweeted. Be wary that these are sometimes viewed as uninteresting, and you may risk losing some of your followers.
