If you enjoy checking-in to various locations using services offered by Foursquare and Facebook, it seems that come iOS 6, there are reports that iOS users will soon be able to check-in to locations via the new Maps app. The check-in service will be provided by Yelp and will see integration into the app itself, thus users will be able to share information and check-in without having to exit the app and launch a new one in its place. With the integration of Yelp’s service, it certainly looks like Apple is interested in keeping everything within the family, as opposed third-party apps and could pose as a challenger to Foursquare and Facebook, both of whom are pretty established within the iOS ecosystem. What do you guys think? Would you prefer a more native service, or are you perfectly fine with using Foursquare or Facebook?
