Gowalla and Foursquare Checkins

Tired of using multiple apps to checkin? Want to rate a place with RateCred but find that you also open up another application to checkin so you can protect your mayoral status? Now you only need one application to rate and checkin to all your favorite location services all at once.

We have worked very hard with, a leading provider of checkin aggregation services, to allow you use RateCred to checkin to Foursquare and Gowalla (more coming soon) every time you share your ratings of the places you go with your friends.

How To Enable Aggregated Checkins
Its easy to enable checkins for your RateCred account.

1. Log into with your twitter account.
2. Go to your user home page. At the lower left side below your friends is a section called "Settings"

3. Select the first checkin service you would like to use, we will choose "foursquare" for this example. You will then be sent to the service's authorization page, this lets you tell the checkin service that RateCred is allowed to checkin on your behalf. Choose "Allow".

4. Once you authorize RateCred you will be directed back to our application.

That's it! You are now enabled to automatically check in to whatever venue you go, every time you rate!
