Are you a Foursquare / Swarm fanatic? If so then you absolutely MUST give the Foursquare Time Machine a try!
Time Machine has been around for a couple of years but not many users are even aware of it. Simply put, users are provided with the capabilities to walk through and visualize their entire foursquare history on the map, and it’s awesome!
Foursquare has teamed up with Samsung to launch what they’ve called the Time Machine. Simply put, Time Machine accesses your foursquare history to build and mashup a very creative and fun history of your foursquare checkins. Watch the screen as you view your entire history animated over a map. You’ll fly around to all the places you checked in, see colorful icons and statistics update on the screen – it really is quite cool! When finished you’ll be presented with a chance to see the “next big thing” which appears to be a specially curated, local list of places that you should go visit – I suspect these are paid ads judging by the stuff that I was shown. Optionally, you can share your stats or build a history graph compiled from your statistics, for me this was based on some 2000+ checkins made over the past 5 years – very cool!
The Time Machine took several minutes to complete for yours truly (this will vary depending on your history size) with the slowest step being the finally production of my history chart – this was painstaking but I suspect my pig of a PC gasping for free memory may be to blame!
