Foursquare is a location-based service, but it's also a social game.
When you first sign up, Foursquare locates you and looks for places you can check into. Each check in gives you points which, if collected enough, make you the mayor of that place. As if you were a boyscout you can unlock badges visiting the same place frequently (the gym would be a great idea).
"Places" means usually bars and shops, but they are also bus stops, the nearest park or the farthest romantic spot. There are places that offer special prizes and discounts if you can show that you are Mayor of that place. The list of associated places is growing every day and players can add more to the overall list.
You can leave comments for those who came to that place in the future, so Foursquare can be a very powerful social tool for local shops and starting business.
Foursquare was born to become much more than a social geocatching game. It will achieve its goal when the number of associated places is really significant. Meanwhile, it's fun to play competing against friends and neighbors just strolling around home.
• Tell Foursquare your favorite things and the app gets to know you.
• Search for the best restaurants, coffee, nightlife, shops, and more.
• Read short reviews and never miss out on the best thing to order or experience.
• Save places you want to go, so you never forget.
“The new Foursquare, like Netflix, takes a lot of the work out of finding the right thing for the right moment.” — The Verge
How It Works:
Tell Foursquare what you like — be specific, like “craft beer” or “fried chicken,” or more general, like “outdoor seating” or “romantic places.” Every search is tailored to your tastes, your past ratings, and picks from friends and experts you trust.

Problem with check in and facebook. when i attach picture it just won't show on facebook. without picture - it does. sucks.
I hate swarm.
I downloaded this app mostly to rate my favorite restaurants, but I couldn't see all of the words in some of the questions in their questionnaire. I also had trouble viewing my review once it posted.
The app changes are genuinely confusing to me, I can't find where my lists are for example. This app made me feel stupid and that's not a good experience. I'll still use it as a second opinion for Yelp but I can wholeheartedly say that if FourSquare no longer existed it probably wouldn't mean much to me or anyone I know. Please hire some professionals to conduct usability tests and I'll be happy t
