Foursquare Time Machine Checks In for a Visual Trip

Foursquare Time Machine Check In for a Visual Trip

A social connection and human tracking facility, Foursquare is a wonderful way of keeping a record of the places you visit. Foursquare in coordination with Samsung launched a new Time Machine feature as announced in an officialblog post on Thursday. Its time machine notes all the check-ins from home to office to restaurant. And it does it in a graceful way. Basically, it creates a cool map of all the places you have visited and connects the spots using lines and dots of different hues. Thus you get a virtual bird’s eye view of the activities and peregrinations you have undertaken in the last few days or weeks. You can take a look at the latest statistics regarding any business firm you want to deal with. And if there is a joint or bar you frequent the site will give you all the info on how many times you have been there.

In fact, the time machine is so sophisticated that it gives you the opportunity to follow your journeys and forays in a systematic manner. In other words, you can re-travel the hot spots you have already been to. This you can do by clicking the navigation choices on either side rather than punching the play button. Several other apps such as Instagram, Vine and Path have been using this facility although indirectly.

The really beautiful thing about the time machine feature is that it gives you a map interface that is in 3D. Therefore you get to see the lay of the land as you hop from one spot to another. This specialty comes courtesy of a joint agreement with South Korean electronics giant, Samsung. Some of the features of the Galaxy S4 got transferred to the time machine app. Another really nifty feature is the sharing of this map mania on Facebook and Twitter. This would be all the better to make friends and family green with envy at all the hot spots you have visited.

Foursquare time machine is basically an interactive map with visualization capacity imbedded in its core technology. On a simpler level the app is like an open book that reads “Samsung Galaxy S4”. And of course it is a fun place for those people who have mind-numbingly boring jobs. They can log on and explore the past history of their trips here and there. Foursquare has therefore just lifted some tired spirits from their state of depression and given them hope for a new day.  

Get ready for your visual trip through  Foursquare Time Machine.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
