Foursquare vs. Loopt Star vs. Gowalla vs. Yelp

Which Geo-Location App Do You Use?

I'm a mayor of a few locations on Foursquare, but I gotta be honest — I'm a big boss on Loopt Star. It seems that even though Loopt Star offers way more actual rewards than Foursquare (and adding more discounts at various locations every day), everyone is hooked on the latter.

Obviously, I love Foursquare (since that's where all my friends are), but I use more than one geo-location app to maximize my rewards potential. And now that Yelp has added a check-in feature to its mobile app (you can be a Duke or Duchess of a location and earn badges and royalty status), there's even more ways to rule your 'hood.

So tell me, which geo-location app do you use? Do you use more than one like me?

I don't use any of these, and to be honest, I really don't get it.

I only use Foursquare - as far as I can tell, Loopt is only on the iPhone, which does me no good as an avid Blackberry user.

it's amazing how many people leave out google lattitude. I personally don't like "checking in". I prefer the auto-ness of it. :)

What's the difference between Loopt and Loopt Star?

I use all of them for a variety of reasons, but win they are also all linked to my Twitteer account, I try not to bombard my tweeties with all these check-in notices.
