Foursquare lets users save web locations to mobile

updated 10:35 pm EST, Wed November 30, 2011

Save to foursquare button added to interface

Foursquare has announced that its services have been expanded to allow users to save locations that are posted on many websites. A "save to Foursquare" button has been added to participating websites, providing a way to bookmark the map location for future reference without leaving the browser. Saved locations are then automatically added to the Foursquare To-Do List.

Users with iOS 5-based devices can take advantage of Radar alerts, which provide a notification when the user is near any of the locations that have been added to the To-Do List.

Participating websites currently include publications such as New York Magazine, Time Out Boston, CBS, Frommer's Travel, Eater.com, and AskMen, among others.

    Cool but creepy

    Knowing my phone is constantly tracking where I’m going is kind of creepy but getting a reminder as I approach the grocery store when I forgot I needed milk is awesome. It might be so handy that it’s worth the little bit of tracking.
