Foursquare has come a long way since it's inception. In the beginning, only a handful of users were checking in when they went places and sharing it to their friends. The friends you had were either the hardcore checkin in people or those that downloaded the app, made an account, and never used it again. Push forward a few years and now everyone and their mother is checking in at places. The service has really taken off and companies are really embracing the product. Some of my favorite stores offer discounts for the "mayor" of the place (the person who checks in the most) and other stores are following.
If you don't mind broadcasting your location to your friends and can carry your phone with you at all times then this is a great free app to own.
