foursquare: Check In in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese

When foursquare co-founder and CEO Dennis Crowley touched on future features for the location-based mobile app during a keynote interview at Social Media Week New York last week, he must have been looking further out into the future than Monday, as he never mentioned the new languages being added.

French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese are now supported by foursquare, and users’ default languages can be changed by updating their Blackberry, iPhone, or Android apps, during which they will see prompts.

The foursquare Web site will add those five languages, and more are on the way for both the apps and the site, foursquare said on its blog.
