42 Fun iPhone Apps That Use The Foursquare API Those of us with smartphones (and I’m guessing that’s most of us here) likely know and use Foursquare on a daily basis, checking and following our friends to see where they check in. With mayorships, Foursquare has sort of “gamified” real life, challenging users to get out of the house and become more socially active. But what you may not be aware of is the scores of mobile apps out there that utilize the Foursquare API. Perhaps more than any other API, Foursquare has been creatively incorporated into apps of all types — photography, games, crowdsourcing, shopping deals and more. How much more? Well grab some popcorn, because here comes a metric ton of fun (and mostly free) Foursquare enabled apps.

PlaceChallenge - location-based game platform Math for the Fast Lane This is why math is taught in school. I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive onto the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and "flipped" the woman off. "Man, that guy is stupid," I thought to myself. I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper to bumper, figure I pass at least another 4000 cars. Statistically, half of these are driven by females. That's 18,000 women drivers! According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all females have seriously considered suicide or homicide. And 34% describe men as their biggest problem. According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry weapons, and this number is increasing. Flip one off?

San Alfonso Del Mar Chile The largest swimming pool in the world is more than 3000 feet long, with a deep end that descends 115 feet. Golden Nugget Las Vegas, Nevada The Golden Nugget casino’s pool may take top honors as the scariest of the strange pools; it gives you the feeling of swimming with the sharks, without actually swimming next to them. Rangali Island Maldives Ubud Hanging Gardens Bali, Indonesia At the Ubud Hanging Gardens in Bali, swimmers get two exotic choices: Overlook the valley from the swimming pool on high, or get into the thick of things in the lower pool among the terraced gardens.
