Checkin Reminder: Written Android App Review
If you’re like us, then you use your smartphone for about two or three things: Phone calls, texting, and check-ins. In fact, we may just about use our phone’s for FourSquare more than we do anything else. But, that still doesn’t mean we remember to add our tallies up every time we go out on the town. Thankfully, there’s a little application from Link Team for Android called Checkin Reminder that wants to make our FourSquare lives a little easier. It’s a quick and simple way to ensure you never lose out on a check-in ever again, and it’s completely free. If that has your interest piquing, then continue on down below the break for our full review!
Concept and Functionality
For those of you who don’t use FourSquare, we have to admit that you’ll likely not find a lot to love in this review. For those that do, we promise this will make an insane amount of sense. Here’s the gist:
Checkin Reminder “watches” your movements, and when it detects that you’ve been in a single location for a while, it will pop-up with a notification asking if you’d like to check-in. You can hit yes and move on with life, or you can click the button to search for other nearby venues if Checkin Reminder has got it wrong. All in all, though, this simple pop-up saves you an incredible amount of time hunting through your phone for FourSquare finding the venue, and then adding your registration. Best of all, Checkin Reminder actually does seem to work! We were surprised by how sensitive and how airtight the entire experience is.
Design and Layout
In fact, our only real complaint with the app comes in the form of its design. You see, Checkin Reminder isn’t the best looking app. At the least, it just doesn’t quite come close to the level of design perfection that FourSquare is rocking. Ordinarily, this would hardly be a problem. However, considering this is an app designed to compliment another app, then we might expect just a little bit more referencing the source material. Still, functionality comes first, and there’s always plenty of room in the future for graphical updates.
Not to mention the fact that Checkin Reminder is completely free in the Google Play Store! Yes, you heard us correctly. The app can be had for zero pennies on the dollar, and can instantly boost your FourSquare game by a considerable margin. Looking for that sneaky way to get ahead of your friends, or even just finally get that local mayorship? We wouldn’t recommend anything else over Checkin Reminder, especially for the money.
