We are a research group from UC Santa Barbara. We are doing a research on Foursquare users' check-in pattern and have developed an Android app for that. At the moment we are eagerly looking for Foursquare users to help collect data. As there are plenty of foursquare users in US, especially in android users, we need your help.
The task is very simple, just to install our app and authorize Foursquare, then it will run by itself in the background and won't create any further workload. And of course, the data will be anonymized and confidencial to protect privacy. We are willing to pay for the data.
In our app, we have some attractive features which provides you more info about your tour on foursquare and I guess you will enjoy it!
So we are wondering whether this is the appropriate place to seek for help and also whether we can find some participants here who are willing to help our research. If you are interested in it or have any comment, please let us know. We are really appreciated for any help!
To help us:
1. Download and install our android app: PLACE EXPLORER.
2. Login with your foursquare account.
3. Hide the app, leave it running in background and you are done!
Just keep regular use of your phone and foursquare checkins.
