It was good to see that the silly things had gone from Foursquare. In the past, being the person with the most checkins at a site earned the "Mayorship" of the site. That was about as silly as the number of "badges" earned by visiting a variety of different venues. It's good to see that nonsense had vanished.
The question is now whether Foursquare actually serves a function. For me, as it now seems to be totally broken, it serves no function whatsoever. There was a very specific use I had for it but it seems better now just to use Twitter while Twitter still functions.
So the question is - is there a geolocation app that will do the kind of things I want now? Answers on the back of a postcard if you can find an app that I can link into a website that:
- Auto-Logs me into certain locations. For example if I set it to log me in when I visit the bakery then every time I visit the bakery, it records it and publishes it on my website.
- Logs me in as required at various locations when commanded to do so.
- Does not record my position when it's not required.
Simple stuff that Foursquare and and auto-checkin app all used to do just fine.
