In my last post, I looked at the foursquare-connected apps that didn’t make the cut after my recent iPhone cleanup. So, you’re probably wondering which ones did make the cut. Here’s the list (all links point to the iTunes app store):
- Foursquare â€” This is obviously still the best way to interact with foursquare. It includes photos, comments, Explore, the new leaderboard and much more. This one stays in the quick access bar of my phone so I can access it at any time.
- Untappd â€” Not really an app (it’s a mobile web site), but it does have a spot on the first screen of my iPhone. What could be better than earning badges for drinking beer?
- Gowalla â€” They may (or may not) be getting out of the checkin business, but I still enjoy checking in there and collecting the stamps and virtual items they offer.
- Footfeed â€” I like that Footfeed can share my location with foursquare, Gowalla, Facebook Places and Google Latitude all at the same time. I still use it occasionally.
- Instagram, PicPlz â€” I love browsing my friends photos and sharing my own. Instagram is my favorite, but sometimes I like the PicPlz filters a little better.
- GetGlue â€” Once you start sharing your location, it’s only natural to start sharing what you’re watching/reading/etc., so it’s nice that they’ve combined the two.
- FourIt â€” This is still the easiest way to check in when I want to use my multiple foursquare accounts.
- Hashable â€” I hate business cards, so Hashable is a perfect way to make a connection with people I meet in the real world.
- Soundtracking â€” Since it has foursquare integration, Soundtracking has completely replaced Shazam on my phone.
- Momento â€” When I need to know what I was doing on a particular day, this is the best way to find out. It includes all my foursquare checkins, Twitter posts, Facebook statuses, Flickr photos and more in one nice-looking spot.
- Foodspotting â€” I’m not a foodie, but when I do eat something nice, I like to show it off with Foodspotting.
- Bizzy â€” I like Bizzy’s recommendations as a back up to foursquare Explore. I use the check out feature occasionally to share places I like and don’t like in a way that’s not necessarilyÂ appropriateÂ for foursquare tips.
- GroupMe â€” I prefer GroupMe to Beluga simply for the foursquare integration, but I haven’t been able to convert many of my non-foursquare friends over to it.
- Localmind â€” I can never think of good questions to ask via Localmind, but I keep the app on my phone in the hope that I’ll have an answer to someone else’s question.
Which apps are your favorites?
