We give a lot of coverage to Foursquare and Gowalla when talking about check-in services, but the truth is many location based apps for Android include the feature now. Where has been around since the early days of Android and it one of the most downloaded travel applications. The app has evolved a lot over time, so check out our walk through of Where if you haven’t seen it in awhile.
New features found in Where 1.9.0 include:
- Available on all Android devices
- Save favorite places and reviews in ‘Placebook’
- Check-in to locations and publish on Twitter and Facebook
- New Dashboard and Events Features
- Android home screen widgets make Check-in super fast
