  1. Tag friends on check in

    On the iPhone application there is the ability to tag a friend saying you are with them. This doesn't seem to be possible on 4th & Mayor. Are there plans to add this feature?

    • Mentioning friends in check in

      Like on the official app for IOS it would be nice if you could mention people in check-ins.

        • Show more than one friend's check-in on the "friends" page

          At the moment, on the fousquare web page a whole list of friend's check-ins can be seen, it would be nice to see the same feature here.

            • When checking into a movie theater, allow us to pick the movie we are going to see.

              My girlfriend could do this with her IPhone before I freed her from sheepdom and conviced her to get a Nokia Lumia 920. But it was a cool feature I have to admin.

                  I’ll review this for a release after 4.0. Does anyone know if this is the current behavior of the official iOS app for foursquare, or did they change this with the timeline alterations, etc.?

                  • Enable NFC Check-In

                    It would be nice to add support for checking in via NFC. The NFC Interactor app allows you to open 4th and Mayor and send arguments to the app using the LaunchApp option.

                              I'm thinking of adding History as a pivot option in addition to "profile" and "social."

                                Right now on your profile, “check-ins” can be touched and it will open a page that shows your history under the profile.

                                It will show maybe the last 15-25 places, but scrolling beyond is a limitation of the current 4th & Mayor app.

                                I will consider for future releases what it would take to add paging or infinite scrolling to go through additional old check-ins.

                                Thanks.

                                As a foursqure superuser, I frequently am editing and merging foursquare locations, but I have no good way to do so on the go. I currently have to mark the location in a to-do list and come back to it and make the edits at home. Being able to make edits on the fly, or review and approve other superusers edits would definatly improve the overall experience of the 4sq community. I would be happy to help in any way that I can.

                                  As a su myself, there are some options – mostly though for venue owners (not superusers) through the standard 3rd party API. I’ll look into it – but likely this behavior either is going to take some time to get out, it is a new sub-product almost.

                                • to make a nearby / all switch in the friend list

                                  The friend list shows all nearby activity on top, you have to scroll all the way down to see activity from friends not nearby. Would be great to be able to switch the view so you can see all your friends check ins in chronological order (already possible on the website and in iOS and Android apps)

                                    there are certian venues that i want to be mayor of. I need to know how to build a strategy to achieve that and being 10 days out or 60 days out is a big difference :-)

                                        Although this was in the 1.0 family of versions of 4th & Mayor, it was removed at the same time that the official foursquare apps for iOS and Android removed the list of nearby places, moving it to a separate page for check-in only.

                                        The idea is that the Explore tab/pivot item is now used to show nearby places of interest, more than just any nearby place.

                                        What do you think the scenario would be here of seeing nearby places outside the check-in page?

                                        In version 3.12, the points are back on the checkin result screen, but the badges are still missing. Please ask them to come back.
