5 Ways to Extend The Reach of Foursquare - A number of social apps and services have implemented foursquare connect using the open, foursquare API. This enables users to easily "double dip" their foursquare checkin!

Some of the fine social resources that you can connect with your foursquare account include:  

WeePlaces http://www.weeplaces.com

WeePlaces is an innovative way to visualize your foursquare checkins on a map. Connect your account and watch an animated graphic depiction showing your foursquare checkins over time. the service also connects with GoWalla. I highly suggest trying this with checkin results from a long roadtrip, loads of fun... be sure to include photos with your checkins!

Instagram http://instagram.com

Instagram is a fun and easy way to snap photos, apply an awesome effect and conenct to a number of social outlets including foursquare.Give it a try, activate your location sharing on your mobile, load the mobile instagram app (iOS) snap a photo, associate it with a place, and the service will check you into foursquare when you save the photo.

facebook - www.facebook.com

If you go to the effort of sharing your foursquare checkins then be sure to go the extra step and connect the service with your foursquare account. then you can easily notify your FB friends when you checkin and best of all, you can also share photos from your checkin as well

Shoudio - http://shoudio.com

Shoudio is somwhat like Instagram, however, this service enables you to associate an audio (soud) clip with  a place. Record a sound and connect it to a place located via the foursquare API. your checkin and clip can then be shared on Twitter and facebook - available for iOS and Android

TopGuest - http://www.topguest.com/

Do you collect travel rewards? TopGuest (@Topguest) enables you to associate your checkins with foursquare and link it to your hotel travel (airline or car rental) reward account. Imagine this, the next time you visit a Hilton or Marriott hotel, you checkin and update foursquare to move ahead in the points game and you also get some extra bonus points on your rewards plan simply for checking in and sharing. The service connects to most major reward platforms including Hilton Honors, Kimpton InTouch, Virgin America Elevate and more! Topguest also integrates with Instagram so you can share photos from your favorite hotels and resorts! Available for iOS
