inPulse Lead Designer Eric Migicovsky just released the code to his Facebook Places check-in app for the inPulse smartwatch. This simple app communicates over Bluetooth to an Android smartphone, which in turn interacts with Facebook Places. Without reaching for his smartphone, Eric can easily check in to his Facebook Places account using an easy to navigate one button interface. The app will query the service and display a local list of available places to check in. After a selection is made the app will display a confirmation message. [via AllFacebook]
