NFC Checkin

Checkin to Foursquare Venues using NFC tags!

But wait: should know that this app is a little pet project. Consider it beta quality and let me know if you encounter issues before rating so we can together improve the app!

Here's what you get:

- Link to your account
- Search for venues, write venue data to NFC tag
- Long-click on a venue to directly checkin
- Tap a written NFC tag to automatically check in
- A beep signals the NFC checkin and a status bar notification shows up. Clicking the status bar notification links to the venue web page.

This is an experiment using NFC (Near Field Communication) and Foursquare (see I am not affiliated in any kind with Foursquare.

Here's what I use it for: for frequently visited venues, I created nfc tags using this application. I put the tags (stickers, really) at the entrance door of my favorite restaurant, at the coffee machine at work or... I think you get it. Keep in mind you first need to create the venues using the foursquare app before you can search and write them to a nfc tag using this app. Once you have tagged your locations, you can simply tap the tag to checkin instead of having to search for the venue, click a couple times, etc.

You need tags? Good places to buy them are, or I recommend to choose NFC-Forum Type 2 Tags, e.g. the Mifare Ultralight.

What's planned for the future:
- make tags read-only once written (Mifare Ultralight only)

What's New

4SQ changed the checkin response format, which caused the app to fail. This was now fixed and checkins and the notifications work again.
