12It’s still being worked on, but in version 1.4 of the iPhone app, “ideally, when people checkin into places that have some kind of special / offer / etc, we’ll show a banner at the bottom which you tap to slide over and see the promo info. If the promo requires some certain level of “local” (e.g.  you’re currently the mayor / you’ve been here 10x / etc) then you’ll see a special screen that you can show to bartender / waitress etc that makes it easier to identify that you’re entitled to the freebee,” co-founder Dennis Crowley tells us.
