Social networking apps have become all the rage, especially with mobile users. You can’t search on Twitter or any corner of the web without finding some reference to checkin apps. The two industry giants are Foursquare and Gowalla which have both been online for just a few years. They feature many similar functions such as user checkins, badges, and friend feeds.
I’ll be demonstrating how to code a simple profile page similar to that of Foursquare. Their design is very simplistic with a 2-column layout split. We’ll be coding this page in HTML5 and CSS3, so I’ll be sure to introduce some of the newer techniques. Additionally I’ve offered the source code for free along with a live demo which you can check out below.
