A note on battery –
We've spent years developing the location technology that powers Foursquare City Guide, making it extremely power efficient. But, as with all apps of this type, please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Contextual recs just keep getting better
I've been using foursquare consistently since 2009, and I was among the first 40,000 users. Foursquare and swarm are now more fun and engaging than they've ever been. It's great to see that some of my favorite features (points, leaderboard, and stickers) have returned and that they are now more compelling than ever.
I'm anxious to see where this journey that Foursquare is embarking upon leads the company. With all the data that they are now gathering with "Pilgrim", passive recs should improve greatly in the coming weeks and months.
Foursquare is now better than it’s ever been. I’m going to remain a loyal user of an app that has brought so much fun, joy, and adventure into my life over the years.
Good, but could be so much better, though!
Foursquare is great, but a couple of really annoying features really bring this app down.
First is the widget, always asking/assuming I'm at some random place around town. Why not just have a simpler widget that gives me the option to select what I'm looking for nearby?
Second is the always-on location services. This really shouldn't be necessary and it bugs me that this is the only app on my phone that requests this, and I used several apps like this one for comparison.
Other than these shortcomings though, I like this app over Yelp or TripAdvisor for sure, and it's more fun to use than just Google Maps.
3 out of 5 thumbs-up 👍 👍 👍 👍 👍
Whatever Happened To Check-In Deals
I originally signed up for 4SQ so I could get access to discounts and other deals at restaurants and other places where I checked in. As the years went by, the deals disappeared, the app split into two different apps with Swarm (so annoying), they got rid of mayorships and he other things that made the app fun... then re-instituted them in a less fun and more annoying way. Now, the only place near me that has a deal is a Pep Boys - and that's it! No restaurants or other places people actually go to on a regular basis (sorry Pep Boys).
At this point, there really is no reason to have the app(s) unless you want to keep track of your movements and check-ins.
