Foursquare update brings the ability to check a friend in

The latest Foursquare app update has arrived in the Google Play Store and this is one that should be welcomed by those who are often checking in with others.

You have likely seen a few examples of this on sites, however for those who may have missed it, Google+ sign-in is not all that different from what we have seen with Facebook and Twitter. That is to say, you can use Google+ to sign into an app or service. This generally makes the sign-up process easier as it takes details from your Google account.
