Beta 6 - Now Predicting your Check-Ins

Only change - Added up to 2 venues to your main activity tab that you are most likely to be checking in to.

The algorithm for this was built overnight so I apologize if this version is buggier than the previous version.

If you don't want to set the predicted location as a favorite you can use the options menu on the edit settings page to directly check-in to that spot.

Get Beta 6 here:

Beta 5 - I use this more than the real Foursquare app

Right where you would expect to find it:

Major Changes:
 Added Default Global Settings for distance to venue, time between check-in, and visibility

 Added Dynamic Location Update Timer.  This reduces power usage and improves location updates for devices without wifi or gps.
  Added ability to Directly Check-In from Venue Settings Activity.  Just click your options button from there to do a quick check-in.  This is great after you click on your nearby notification.

Minor Changes:
  Added image icons for all menus.
  Menu items to update location and refresh data separately.

Next Scheduled Changes:
  Josh will be building a few ways to Check-In without entering venue settings.
  The first secret feature!
