We brought you news of Foursquare‘s imminent release in London earlier this week. Today, the app is now live!

Foursquare is a location-based social network wrapped in social gaming paper. The mobile application lets you play by “checking in” at various locations when you’re out and about, and in doing so turns the mobile app into a city guide, loyalty store card and social connector.

Until now, Foursquare only been available in the US and Amsterdam but now London gets it turn.

Grab the iPhone app: here and if want me, I’m here. If you’re wondering how to get a personalised URL, you have to sync with Twitter.
