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.
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.

Problem with check in and facebook. when i attach picture it just won't show on facebook. without picture - it does. sucks.
How much is my point now? Missed the old Foursquare.. :(
Having to update Swarm and switch to another app to check in is just too cumbersome for this day and age. I now only use Foursquare to get general recommendations.
Check in need to open ther application. To search no big icon.
