My Checkin

Let people know where you are, even if you are not actually there!

Use My Checkin to do Facebook checkins at any place in the world, whether you are actually there or not.

Practical e.g. if you are supposed to be some place else, like at work or something, or if you want to brag about your vacation even though you've been home all the time.

Usage

My Checkin is ready to go, so for normal use this is all you need to know:

At start you are asked to log in to Facebook unless you are already, and first time it will also ask for permission to send checkins to Facebook.

After that, and any number of times:

Possibly Search for map locations or pan and zoom the map to the right location.

Get Places surrounding the map center.

Possibly further pan and zoom the map to see the interesting places.

Click on any of the places to select it. The map centers on that place and its name is shown above the map.

Checkin to the chosen place.

That's all there's to it.

Menu

When you press the Menu button, this pops up:

Settings control the map and places. See more below.

Help might get you started.
