Checkie for Foursquare
Description of App
Checkie is a Foursquare client built for speed. Simply launch the app and swipe to check in. Check-ins will even complete in the background.
That's it, lightning fast with a clean, simple interface.

It just works. Either flick left/right to reach each new entry or just slide your finger down to get to what you want. Then double tap after selecting a place to check into.
The app is not full of bells and whistles, but if you want something to quickly check into Foursquare places, then this app is it. After each check in you will see your points earned for that check in, but you will not see the breakdown of the points. This isn't meant to be a Foursquare replacement, and it won't show you all the neat things that Foursquare does. However it's not meant for that. If you want menus, address info, comments, ETC, then use the regular Foursquare app. If you want a quick way to check in without digging through menus or things, then this app is for you. I use it along side the regular Foursquare app with no issues. It also supports Twitter and Facebook toggles to show your checkins.

Wonderful! They did a great job on this. Kudos to the developer!
The new gestures are as followed:
- Single finger double tap and hold allows you to copy the URL of the venue
- Single finger double tap will check you in for that venue
- Single finger triple tap to find more details about the venue
Also, to note that with in the Details page. There is a Detail button that will give you more information about the venue including past checkins, phone numbers, menus where it is available, tips and more.
Hopefully, this will resolve the updating problems that several people have seen.
