An iPhone app promises to make the location-based service easier to use.

A new iPhone app called Future Checkin enables Foursquare users to be checked-in automatically when they are near their favorite venues. Currently, users have to manually check-in every time, even if they are visiting the same venue regularly. The new app allows adding venues to your list of favorites and automatically checks you in when you are close to your chosen locations, thus saving time.

Here's a video demo of Future Checkin:
