Foursquare Guarantees, By way of Poem, That It Does NOT Drain Your Battery

Foursquare Promises, Via Poem, That It Does NOT Drain Your Battery

The situation conscious app Foursquare, and its examine-in sidekick Swarm, seemingly kills my telephone’s battery. I imply, every time I get inside a block of the TechCrunch workplace, it lets me know all the fantastic locations round me that I can seize a espresso or whatnot.

I even tweeted about how annoying the drain is:

Foursquare ought to pay for my iPhone battery pack.

One drawback with my annoyance, Foursquare swears that their apps don’t drain your battery. A lot in order that they despatched me a stunning little poem together with a Foursquare branded telephone charger (which I gave to my spouse). I assumed it was a reasonably cool approach to deal with a gripe that they in all probability get typically:

It’s a enjoyable learn, so click on on it. They get to the guts of the matter by explaining their “Pilgrim” know-how, which apparently solely activates the situation conscious options if you bodily cease when you’re en path to wherever you’re going. Truthful. I’m on my telephone rather a lot, and I are likely to cease to answer to emails and texts.

So right here’s my official apology, Foursquare.

Simply persist with your day jobs and we’ll do the writing ;)
