Rating System Makes No Sense The app is a beautiful material design with no glitches that I've seen. However places have a 1 through 10 overall rating, but when you rate a place it only gives you 3 symbols. A heart, a sad face, broken heart. How in the world are you calculating a number from symbols?! Just allow a 1 through 10 or 1 through 5 number system when rating. Its the main thing hurting this app. Which is a BIG problem not meeting able to trust the overall rating number.
Great for recommendations But.... I understand by now you're highlighting "local guides", I like it. But by now I kind of want to turn it off because of you're massive pink message telling me you're highlighting them. Next update? Oh and it'd be great if I could choose what way I want to see the ratings, latest first, or most visited first, etc.
Update fixed crashing! Hopefully they update this again quick. I like the new front page much less busy. Would give this 4 to 5 stars once crashes are fixed. It is a much better front end now that lets you get to the info you want faster.
I used to love it until I have a problem with "Filter" slidebar Have developers ever try using it before? Can you slide it up without it push back? I am very ANNOYED of this.
I like the old Foursquare better. It's nice to get some tips from people around. However, I find the old design better. It was simple, sleek, and user friendly. Now, it is a bit of a hassle to open another app (Swarm) to check in.
Thoughtless sign up process One of the requirements of this app is to provide your date of birth. You're not allowed to skip it. However, there are no drop down boxes to make this entry easily. The app has a calendar which you have to swipe over and over to get to the date and year that you were born. I'm 67 years old. I've been swiping nonstop for over an hour and I've only gotten to 1998. I'm about to uninstall the app so I'll never know if it was any good.
