I'm still a fan of +Foursquare
Have you really tried the app since its reinvention? Like really took it for a discovery run?
If not, you should.
I typically rely on Foursquare for my discovery, and Yelp if I really need to find out the reviews. Yeah, I still Swarm
because I like collecting stickers and competing with friends, but Foursquare's discovery and recommendation engine is pretty legit. And now they're building real-world rewards into the system.
I actually really love the Expertise
feature, where you can earn more visibility in your local area for types of places or geographic areas that you frequent. (For example, I have expertise in food trucks
, because I frequent them more than I care to admit, and leave tips for others.)
Download it and take it for a run again. Then get back to me on what you think. Really. #localbusiness #recommendations #apps
