Foursquare now lets users check friends in

Foursquare has released a new update for its Android and iOS apps that allows users to check in their friends. When checking in, users now have the option to add who they are with from a list of friends. Anyone added will then be sent a notification asking for permission to check them in, and approving once will enable the feature indefinitely. A notification will always be provided when being checked in by a friend, and a delete button can be used to get rid of any unwanted check ins. In addition, the update also adds a number of new filters in Explore that can be used to filter searches.

Waterproof Bluetooth speaker released by Ecoxgear

A new waterproof Bluetooth speaker has been launched by Ecoxgear. Dubbed Ecorox, the speaker boasts full waterproofing and has received IPX7 approval. The Ecorox has also been designed to float if dropped into water, while a rubberized shockproof casing helps the device withstand other drops. A standard bottom screw mount is also included, along with a detachable carabiner clip. The Ecorox retails for $130 and can be found in Apple retail stores across the U.S. and Canada.
