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.
What's New in Version 10.3.1
A few little improvements here and there, nothing major.
Cooking up some greatness for the future.
Update: this app has been ruined. Swarm is the new checkin app and it's not very good. Foursquare is supposed to be a super advanced personalized recommendation engine, but based on 5,000 checkins all over the county the top recommendation is a bar. I don't even drink, and have never checked into a bar before. Foursquare should know that with all the data it has collected about me. So much for your fancy personalized search.
Foursquare offers great recommendations on places to go in town. I find the foursquare recommendations to be better than yelp or urban spoon because they are based on more than just a rating. Foursquare will tell you which places have a good rating but also which places are popular and have returning customers. I have found some amazing restaurants with it. If you are not getting good recommendations it could be because you are not checking in or there are not enough people in your town checking in.
I also love checking in and exporting my checkins to google maps to see all my travels. Overall this is a great app and is a lot of fun! Have been using it daily since over 3 years.
The list feature is perfect for traveling. I love that the lists correspond to a gps map with all the places I want to go. As a tourist, Foursquare is invaluable. It's much easier and prettier to use than Google's My Maps.
The rating system is simpler and better than other review sites. Three out of five stars can mean different things to different people, but everyone knows what a sad face means.
One criticism: edits take way too long to be approved.
Quick and easy review process
I can make reviews very simply and best feature is the way I am able to upload pictures. A list of pictures is shown from the area (they read the EXIF metadata of all pictures I guess) which is super handy to pick up the pictures quickly in a long list.
