-Add tastes, rate places, and lifelog where you’ve been to get hyper-personalized recommendations.
-Follow friends, brands, and influencers and uncover the best experience possible with millions of tips about off-the-menu items, speakeasy entrances, wifi passwords, and much more.
-Keep a history of the places you’ve been. Never forget a memory, photo, or the name of that incredible pizza place you went to while visiting Rome.
-Find exactly what you’re looking for. Faster.

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.

Terrible experience using the app, I'm not able to add my listing/edit the listing I added as a guide (because I wasn't able to add the business listing) glitches all the time and overall really poor user experience

For the past month or so, the app hasn't been locating me properly. Even though my location indicator is positioned ok, the app is somehow trying to find me somewhere in the South Atlantic Ocean. When I manually zoom in to my actual location, everything is working as expected. I'm assuming the same thing is happening with Swarm as well...

I have been using the app for more than 4 years. There are many problems in the app and none of them were fixed since I use it, for example you cannot edit your existing reviews, you cannot delete your 'History', photo tags are manual, you can't see your full review history, there is no confirmation after uploading a photo, when you close the app and come back the app shows you not a LP but last opened page, the app asks me to agree with T&C EVERY time I open it etc
