How to Share Flickr Photos to Foursquare on Android?

Flickr is an awesome photo and video sharing service run by Yahoo. You can use Flickr to backup photos and videos, organize, edit and share them to other social networking sites. When you upload photos to Flickr, they are compressed and re-sized by Flickr in the different sizes.
