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've been waiting for some integration with Android Wear. I can only ask that we get the same for Swarm.
Used to love this app, then they decided to make you launch a second app to check in, what's the point of 2? Forget this one, and Swarm. I'm done.
Only gripe would be they need to work on the UI being more intuitive
