A new third-party Foursquare app called #Mom has launched with a simple premise, keeping your mom in the know about your whereabouts.
The service works by connecting your moms phone number to your Foursquare account at hashtagmom.com. Once signed up you can send your mom a check-in notice or short accompanying message via call or text.
To use the service users just enter their moms phone number, connect to Foursquare and the message will be sent to inform her about their whereabouts.
Check out the #Mom app for Foursquare with a test run on your mobile device and let us know what you think about the program.
