While Foursquare's heydays seem to be largely over, GNOME 3.16 is going to premiere its GNOME Online Accounts integration with Foursquare and allow users to check-in on GNOME Maps.

Thanks to Damián Nohales' work last summer on Foursquare support in GNOME via Google Summer of Code 2014, GNOME 3.16 has basic support for this location sharing service now focused on local search.

With code that's landed for the GNOME 3.16 release due out in March, there's a Foursquare provider for GNOME Online Accounts to link your Foursquare account to the system.

GNOME 3.16 will also deliver a check-in feature for GNOME Maps so that users can post check-ins at locations to both Foursquare and Facebook.

Other applications can also take advantage of the Foursquare support via the GNOME Online Accounts API.

More details on the GNOME Foursquare integration can be found via this blog post today by Damián Nohales.
