Even trying to explain the app to myself gives me a nervous tic. The genre was recently made popular by the app Foursquare, which lets you "check in" at different locations with your iPhone. This repetitive endeavor ultimately leads to you being declared the "mayor" of locations that you visit the most, while also letting you earn various badges telling you how awesome you are for going places."
