Foursquare is awesome for meeting up with friends - it notifies you when a friend checks in close by so that you can go meet them. But, sometimes a friend checks in while you're busy - at dinner, seeing a movie, etc. You want to hang out with them when you're free, but you won't unless you put in a lot of effort into co-ordinating plans for later.

It then suggests a fun place between all of you where you guys can meet up when you're free.
