"At the moment, it's just a game But who knows what may become?"

Reviewed by / May 17, 2011

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.

Developer's original description available here
Our tastes are different, so why should we get the same search results? The new Foursquare learns what you like and leads you to places you’ll love.

Foursquare is all about searching and discovering great places, wherever you are in the world.

• Tell Foursquare your favorite things and it gets to know you. Every search is tailored to your tastes, your past ratings, and picks from friends and experts you trust.
• Your tastes can be very specific like “whiskey” or “salted caramel.” Or more general like “outdoor seating” or “used bookstores.”
• Leave tips to share your best discoveries. Pay it forward and earn expertise.
• Search for restaurants, coffee, nightlife, shops and more. See what’s nearby or plan ahead.
• When you arrive at a place, see insider tips: what’s good to order or something not to miss.
• Follow people and influencers whose tastes you trust, and their tips show first. Connect your Facebook and twitter accounts and see spots your friends have liked nearby.

    For my own personal use I've used both yelp and foursquare to check in, but foursquare was not great at finding good reviews or new places. Yelp was good at reviews but couldn't find new places to check out on a whim. This new update is much better at finding new spots to check out spontaneously, and I've already found two locations that foursquare recommended that I wouldn't have found otherwise!

    I can understand wanting to split off some functions into other apps, but why do we have to have Swarm to check in? It's almost annoying using it to check in, when it could be a pop up in the regular Foursquare app itself. Other than that, this is SO much better than Yelp. Keep up the good work!

    ... so what's the point of this app now?
