Google+ Competing With Foursquare?

The last days and weeks, there has been lots of coverage about Google+ features like Circles, Sparks and Hangouts, but there wasn’t that much talk about the Google Check-ins. This features shows up in the mobile app and allows you to check in by attaching your location to a status update. The advantage of Google Check-ins is that it tightly integrates with your Circles to share your checkins with only the people you want to see them. This offers a much more nuanced approach to privacy than services like Foursquare or Facebook are able to offer. If you want to try Google+ for your Android, but you cannot find the App in the Market repository, you can search for the APK file in the web and install manually. This shall work without any problems.
