Check into Foursquare on an iPod touch

Foursquare boast itself as a smartphone social networking game. Smartphones use cell phone tower triangulation to pinpoint its exact location. Apps such as Foursquare, Gowalla and Geocaching use this information to know exactly where you are at all times. An iPod touch however is limited with its location-based abilities. It has to rely on the location of a wireless router to determine where it is in the world.

So I had a thought. How many places could I check into with Foursquare using an iPod touch as I drove around town running my errands?

Without diverting from my planed route I was able to check into Foursquare from ten different locations using my iPod touch.

Starbucks – Summerville
Charleston County Public Library
Apple Store
Starbucks – Charleston
Earth Fare
St. Andrews Family Fitness Plus
St. Andrews Library
Barnes & Noble
Roper St. Francis Hospital

It just goes to show that you don’t need a smartphone the play and access social media sites.
