After you connect the Fourstalgia app to your Foursquare account, each time you check-in, you’ll get to see local historical photos via SepiaTown, a crowdsourced database of historical photos.
A Foursquare History Lesson
What’s awesome about Fourstalgia is both how simple and immediately rewarding it is. You get additive content that is completely relevant, and it is built right into your Foursquare experience. And if you want to share the historical photos from Fourstalgia, then you can tweet links to them right from within Foursquare.
I Want More From Fourstalgia
The only thing on my wishlist is additional historical information that tells me more about the pictures. You get a short description, but I need to know everything about the old Madison Hotel in Hoboken, NJ right now.
Try out Fourstalgia and let me know what you think. Don’t be shy. There’s a comment box below.
