Foursquare opened up its API in January, and not much happened. The only reason I can understand why is that Foursquare itself doesn’t quite have the audience to demand the best and the brightest’s time on app development. It’s getting there though, and fast. This lead me to start thinking about the market as well as poking around the API and I think there are a few holes that app developers can fill and a few tempting ideas that will never gain legs. I spent yesterday’s post on three apps (or categories of apps) that I don’t think will take off. Today, the good stuff. The three concepts that I think will take off on the Foursquare API.
These are just my guesses based on a feel for social media. Do I have any dissenters?
