Today marks the first full month that I've been using an iPhone app called Foursquare -- which is kind of fun. I learned about the App while reading a business journal article describing how various businesses along Los Angeles' Sunset Strip have been using Foursquare to help promote their businesses.

A cross between a friend-finder, a social city-guide, and a game that rewards you for doing interesting things, Foursquare aims to help you keep up with the places your friends go, while encouraging you to discover new places, and challenging you to explore your neighborhood in new ways. You can use FourSquare from anywhere in the world where you have web access.

Check out this CNN news report about California native, 15-year-old Parker Liautaud, who recently used Foursquare to check-in at the North Pole.
