Neer

Neer is for those times when you’ve wanted to know…

“Has my spouse left work yet?”
“Who’s around for lunch?”
“Is now a good time to call?”
With Neer… now you know

Neer allows you to privately and automatically share your location with the people you care about. Not everywhere you go, just the places that really matter.

Neer works in the background so you don’t have to. Go ahead, leave work and leave your phone in your pocket. We’ll let your loved ones know you’re on your way!

Plancast

Plancast is a service for sharing your upcoming plans with friends. It's a social calendar of sorts. Just submit the things you're thinking about doing in the future, and your friends will be able to hear about them - and maybe join you, too!

foursquare

Get foursquare on your phone!

First things first - let's get foursquare on your phone. Your best bet is to download either our
iPhone app or Android app. If you have a Blackberry or another phone with a web browser, you're
best off using mobile website (and yes, a Blackberry app
is in the works!)

If you have a phone that doesn't have a web browser, you can use our SMS shortcode to check-in by
sending messages to 50500 (like this: @ Ace Bar ! enjoying happy hour). Sorry, but this works in
the US only for now.



Check-in to places

People use foursquare to "check-in", which is a way of telling us your whereabouts. When you check-in
someplace, we'll tell your friends where they can find you and recommend places to go & things to do
nearby. People check-in at all kind of places - cafes, bars, restaurants, parks, homes, offices.

You'll find that as your friends use foursquare to check-in, you'll start learning more about the places
they frequent. Not only is it a great way to meet up with nearby friends, but you'll also start to learn
about their favorite spots and the new places they discover.


Share your experiences with friends

Think of foursquare as an "urban mix tape." We'll help you make lists of your favorite things to do and
let you share them with friends. Think beyond your standard review - we're looking less for "The food
here is top notch" and more for "Go to Dumont Burger and try the most amazing Mac and Cheese ever."
Foursquare will keep track of the things you've done, help you create To-Do lists and even suggest new
experiences to seek out.

As you check-in around the city, you'll start finding tips that other users have left behind. After
checking-in at a restaurant, it's not uncommon to unlock a tip suggesting the best thing on the menu.
Checking-in at a bar will often offer advice on what your next stop should be. Every tip you create is
discoverable by other users just by checking-in.


Earn points and unlock badges!

Every foursquare checkin earns you points. Find a new place in your neighborhood? +5 points. Making
multiple stops in a night? +2 points. Dragging friends along with you? +1.

And as you start checking-in to more interesting places with different people, you'll start unlocking
badges. There are badges for discovering new places and for traveling to far away places. Spending too
much time singing karaoke or been hitting the gym consistently? Yes, there are badges for those too :)


Become the mayor! Unlock some freebies!

We all have our local hangouts and foursquare keeps tabs on who's the most loyal of all the regulars.
If you've been to a place more than anyone else, you'll become "the mayor"... until someone else comes
along and steals your title.

It may sound a little silly until you see the list of places that are offering
freebies to our mayors - free coffees, free ice-cream, free hotel stays - it pays to be a foursquare
loyalist and check-in whenever you go!
