The name of the app? "Hell Is Other People"

Brief description -

The app looks at your Foursquare friends' recent check-ins, calculates "optimal locations for avoiding them," and slaps everything onto a nice Google Maps interface. Follow its guidance while strolling through a city and you should be able to avoid familiar faces.

Hmmm...extreme introvert here, but I don't have a problem with friends. It's strangers/aquaintences that bother me.

Got an app for that? Oh yeah, it's called life


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Introvert here too, Sazzy (been waiting to use that - so much better than Sad). Unfortunately, all the people I would want to avoid are Luddites and wouldn't know Foursquare if it smacked them in the face.

I don't know why you need an app, NIK. I'm usually at the g2gs.

I totally use FourSquare as where NOT to go tool.

I will probably be downloading this app later.

Yea I used to check and see where people cheating checked in and studiously avoided those places.

Unagie,

Please remember that Fun & Games is an infidelity-free zone.

Thank you.

I used to get smacked in the face in foursquare all the time ...

Am I a Luddite?
