"Checkin & go"

Reviewed by / May 18, 2012

Simple Checkin tracks nearby venues and places and allows you to check-in (really fast) in Foursqaure.

"Simple" Checkin isn't euphemism: this app is truly simple. Sometimes you don't want to see your friends updates, pictures or any other stuff: you want to check and move. Well, that's what Simple Checkin offers: fast checkin.

It tracks nearby places and displays the list from where you can check-in in one touch. What's more, at the bottom of the screen there's a map to check that you're checkin properly in the desire location. If the venue you're looking for isn't in the list, input venues' name in the search bar. Keep in mind that your Foursquare friends can see checkins made by Simple Checkin but they won't be posted to Facebook or Twitter.

Yes, layout should be improved. But you were looking for quickness, isn't? That has a price. We can assure Simple Checkin is fast, not such as cute as you maybe expected. Anyway, recommendable for people who's really into Foursquare.

Developer's original description available here
Check-in to foursquare in one tap. The app is very quick, and very simple.

Sometimes you just want to check-in to Foursquare and move on. Simple check-in allows you to do just that.

Features:
- one touch check-ins
- Long press to check-in with a shout and share to Facebook / Twitter
- includes a map view so you can tell if your location is correct
- custom venue search (press the search button)
- app opens instantly to the foursquare nearby venue list
- all check-ins from the app are shared with friends but NOT posted to twitter or facebook
- Your location IS passed on check-in, so these check-ins are eligible for mayorships.
- No ads (there never will be)

If you have any issues with the app, please email me so that I can fix them. There's no function for me to contact you if you leave a bad review. I find squishing bugs very relaxing! (you can also tweet me: @rathboma)

This app supports android 2.1 and up. It should allow you to foursquare check-in with no problems on even the oldest phones.

Currently there are only 770 lines of code in the entire app, this helps to keep it fast. The goal is to keep this under 1000 to maximize speed, and reduce battery drain.

    This app has gotten me back into using Foursquare because of it's simplicity. Thanks for the app. Feature request, a delete check in feature. Sometimes when driving I hit the wrong one and then have to go back later in the official app to delete. Mayb
