Where's the trick? Squicker app is lighter than the official one, since it brings the basic features for check-in venues in Foursquare. We use to spend too many time waiting our apps to load all its content. Squicker is one of these apps that will help you to save time when the only thing you want to is check-in, not deeply check the location-based social network.
One of the best features of Squicker is that it keeps track of nearby FS venues (in the background) and then provides you shortcuts to checkins in the status bar. This isn't just helps you to save time, but it's a reminder, which will increase your checkins and your status in Foursquare.
Layout is way more sober than FS official app. This lightness is what makes it faster too. Actually, it's quite intuitive and layout doesn't really matters in this kind of apps: what really matters are its push notifications and location settings. If you want to have full access to mayorship and visited venues notifications you'll need to upgrade to the Pro version. Recommendable.
Squicker keeps track of nearby Foursquare venues in the background and provides you with shortcuts to checkins via the status bar, saving you time!
Look for the pro version with mayorship and visited venue notifications in the Android market.
