Can foursquare friends know each other’s current location without having to Check In to places using the various mobile apps?

    As a big user of foursquare I can tell you the answer is no. foursquare is used to check-in solely and while it is a location tracking app it won't let you see your friends locations in real-time.

    It would seem you want to keep in touch with friends physical locations without having to manually update an app, just like Apple's Find my Friends does. I would perhaps recommend Google Latitude for the job, though I'm not sure how up to date the service is these days: http://www.google.com/latitude

    I wrote an article about tracing locations of various phones, you can read it here but I don't think it will be of much use beyond what has already been mentioned: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/top-8-apps-services-tracing-mobile-phone-location-ios-android-wp7-si/

    I'd say Latitude is best for the job, but I don't think there's a Windows Phone version :(
