For the longest time I fought getting a “smart” phone. I had never needed it before and couldn’t fathom why I would need it now. I had tons of friends that owned one, so if we ever needed to find something or some kind of App would help our situation, they had a phone and we used theirs. Well, a little under a year ago I was given an Android phone for my birthday…
I now know what I was missing…these phones are incredible. When I told me friends I had one they instantly told me which apps and games I needed to download ASAP. We connected with each other through these apps and its been a blast ever since.
I discovered this app called Foursquare not to long ago and I’m surprised it isn’t more popular (yes I know there are millions of people that use it every day.) If you don’t already know, this app allows you to check into places, become the mayor of the location, and sometimes get some kind of deal from the place you checked into. It can also be a fun game to play with your friends to see who gets where first.
Becoming the mayor is more satisfactory than you think, I recently “stole” the mayorship to Kohl’s from someone I have never met and I fist pumped in victory in the middle of the store. I got some interesting looks from both my friends and complete strangers. I checked into various restaurants and mayors get deals there and if you check in a certain amount of times you can get a deal, it’s all quite fun!
