New iPhone app to automatically check you in on Foursquare

This follows on rather nicely from my earlier Foursquare post –

Ogilvy 360 Digital Influence’s Jonathan Nguyen shared today that Techcrunch overnight broke the news of an app  that will automatically check in for you.

This new app, available only on the latest Apple iPhone OS, will make checking in much more convenient for the Fourquare addicts and keen bean people who want to score the points.

The downside is that it brings you alot closer to ‘tracking’ which obviously has privacy implications (see controversy over Google Latitude). An interesting development nonetheless.
