Foursquare Now Forces Users to Checkin With Swarm

Foursquare app on iOS now forces us users to checkin with Swarm. While Swarm’s is entertainingly good but honestly don’t like it. For me, the Foursquare app is more useful because of its tips and the UI is more intuitive. But it looks like Foursquare is is about to kill its original app anytime this year. If ain’t broke don’t fix it right Foursquare? I believe there will be user backlash here.

Anyway if this is inevitable then just bring back the private checkin and I’ll be happy.

In just under 24 hours, Amazon now officially launched Kindle Unlimited. You can subscribe with the service for $9.99 / month or roughly Php45 and get unlimited access to over 600,000 ebooks and thousand of audiobooks. That’s a great deal for book readers but the big question is how will the newbie writers and authors will earn a decent living from it.

Unfortunately its a US only service, I have a kindle US account and I will let you know if it will work.

Here’s the link for the 30 days trial
