Bring back expertise 3/5
It was fun to try to leave good tips to earn new expertise. Taking that away has kind of made me not want to even use the app anymore.
Where are the Expertises? They disappeared!
Good alternative for Yelp 5/5
It is more useful and convenient to find some places. Works perfect. Thank you
Fully Broken 1/5
This app doesn’t even get as far as an account login/sign up. It’s immediately “oops something went wrong” followed by a blank screen with a loading animation that never goes away.
I submitted a bug report but the process to do so was so cumbersome and unclear, I’m not sure if my bug report was even captured. This problem persists through using WiFi and cellular data and after re-installing the app from scratch.
I’m a software engineer and this is pretty terrible guys. I was ready to replace Yelp with this because I’m simply tired of Yelp, but that’s not possible if the extent of your app’s functionality is an error message and a blank loading screen.
Bad pop up placement 3/5
Why on earth would you put the “are you here” pop up over the check in button? Of course someone’s going to likely think that’s the right flow, or accidentally click on it. There’s no language that says that clicking on it will lead to an incognito check in. I miss the dodgeball Foursquare days before swarm.
Every time I open the app it just says “Oops! Something went wrong...”
Updates not acknowledged 1/5
It would seem if a user or owner provided updates, after weeks they would be reflected on the business. It seems they gather hoards or useless data, but not really concerned with any accuracy. Very sad.
Get a different cheese cake 2/5
By Richie lkes cheese cake
Small is OK. Deliciously creamy is a must. 3G’s deli needs a different Sysco, PFG, or somebody else’s cheese cake.
GREAT APP 5/5
Always good to enjoy
App won’t work 1/5
Can’t even get the app to open. Just keep getting “Oops, something went wrong”. Submitted a trouble ticket and was contacted by the developer to ask what OS version I was running. I responded, but no contact from them since. Was really looking forward to using this on my Apple Watch given the hype it got in articles I read.
Your app doesn’t work, every time I try to access, it says, “Oops there was an error, sorry!!! 1/5
By Ro,Ro boo😉
Who creates a app that has no content to access. If there’s no functions to access then why was it created in the first place.
It even displayed a little :-( so clearly I don’t recommend it.
ILKB Suffolk, VA 5/5
I love going to the ILKB classes in Suffolk , VA. I feel I have more energy and more fit than ever. The instructors are always there to help you. Thank you ILKB Suffolk.
So frustrating 1/5
Unfortunately nobody couldn't delete or even correct any wrong or unrealistic information about incorrect registered locations/places in foursquare.
My Favorite app 5/5
I always check the Foursquare when I visit new places
That did not work 1/5
I downloaded the program three times with the same results. The program starts and then a popup appears stating “Oops something went wrong” then a red circle starts rotating. The last time I tried to run the program when red circle started I placed the phone down on the table and checked it after one hour still circling then at two then three hours with the same thing going on. I then checked before going to bed still circling, got up in the morning and closed and removed the program as a lost cause. I’m now going to try something else to use with my Garmin RV780 for our travels.
Won’t open 1/5
By Coach J1
I downloaded the app three different times. Each time I tried to open it, the app said “oops. Something went wrong.” and then tried to load but never did. I let it keep trying for several minutes but got nothing.
Downloaded, won't even open.
Going downhill 1/5
I can no longer see reviewers’ expertise or even my own. What’s the point in reading tips if we can’t identify the expert reviewers?
Can’t log in 1/5
Been a while sense I logged in. Tried to change my password, because it said I have to, yet didn’t get an email. Finally went through support and got the password changed, and now it’s making me do it again, as if I didn’t just changed my password....are we in the 1990s again?
A shadow of former glory... 2/5
Up until about a week ago I always considered Foursquare a more functional & aesthetically pleasing alternative to Yelp, however, that ship has sailed with the removal of the “Expertise” system.
TLDR: Foursquare lost a lot of functionality in a recent update. It’s not worthwhile & you should focus your energy & time on Yelp.
Won’t update a business address 1/5
I have requested MULTIPLE times to have my business address changed via the APP and it hasn’t happened. Not even a follow up email...nothing.
Dairy Queen 735 east Hazelwood Avenue Rahway,Njgas 5/5
Simply amazing ice cream!🏳️🌈
Poor UI 1/5
By Nickname #8472
Difficult to navigate to the appropriate tools, as if they were hidden. Items that have just been entered become uneditable.
Ancient reviews still present as current reviews 1/5
The fact that most people now don't use Foursquare or Swarm when researching a place or business is a testament how this app is antiquated. It begs the question why is it still around?
For archival purposes there should be a separate area where reviews older than 12 months are listed. Otherwise everyone now uses Google Maps and Yelp to research reviews.
Used to be good 2/5
By Techno Shaman
Used to prefer this over the Yelp app, but it’s now fallen behind. The core design is still nice, but new venues show up on Yelp much sooner than they do in Foursquare (if at all). To make matters worse, the app has been throwing errors for some time when trying to add a venue manually, or edit a venue to make suggestions (such as when a venue has closed permanently, to add hours, a location, etc).
These errors were reported to the Foursquare team almost five months ago and have still not been addressed. It really does feel like Foursquare’s pivot has left the original app on life support.
Swarm coins 3/5
What can one do with the stash of swarm coins?
Can’t edit anything ! Very hard to find the info for my own business 1/5
Finding it very difficult to edit my own information for my business.
All the tips are not visible! 1/5
I even sent an email to your support a very detailed description of the problem with screenshots but still no fix yet:
On the tips tab, when I click "All Tips", not all of the tips are visible but just exactly 20 of them. for example there are 500 tips for a restaurant, but the app shows me only 20 of them. But interestingly when I click one of the tags, e. g. "hamburger" which is let's say 150 times repeated among the tips all 150 of them are shown. And when I write a review for that venue then all of the 500 reviews become suddenly all visible to me. So unless I write a review for a venue I can only see first 20 the reviews even if it has hundreds of reviews.
I have this issue with foursquare from the very start please fix this.
update march 19: still no fix.

Cut the rating system to out of 5
Feature request 4/5
Please add option to add if chair for kids is available
Great app 5/5
By Chris iWear
Love this app it keeps track of all my spots and past places I have been
Better than Yelp 5/5
More compatible and more user-centric than Yelp and a fine app. I got it because of a recent podcast about the creator and have loved it!
By Hard Knock
Not bad but doesn't make my app weenie wiggle.
Why am I standing in Kroger and I have to search the list of Kroger stores over 10 miles from me that I never have been to? Is distance order that difficult? Sounds like poor app writers to me.
Keeps crushing and crushing, and locking and pretty soon I will erase this app after over 7 y of use 1/5
By International Space Station
It seems that the app cannot handle extensive profiles browsing and keeps on locking, crushing and now I am not able to log in to my account either...
Same issue continues on 2/16/2019, a different day... same not fixed issue.
Four square 5/5
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Genius way to share ! Thanks so much from thegoatcottage.com
سنگسابي 09123081389 5/5
Food at this joint is average. Prices are okay but with the many optimum sing experiences to choose from in the Phx metro area why settle for average. The bar dining area is way too noisy to carry on a conversation. Asteticlly appealing if you sit outside to enjoy a beverage and countryside. Go for the later not the former.
I’ve used Foursquare to find awesome places! Why waste time and money with hit or miss when you can get a recommendation from people who have actually frequented a place?
I still love Foursquare 5/5
Just love it, thanks for making g it easy to find amazing spots-but please keep updating :)
Fails to recognise our business 1/5
By OPC Reno
We have been in contact with Foursquare and posting for 4 years and they fail to recognise us—we feel it’s discrimination.
Charges to display business 1/5
I created a profile for my business and it does not show up in any search unless you search by the exact name. I wanted to claim it as my business and Foursquare wanted to charge me $20. What a crappy site. I guess I don’t care to have my business listed here if I have to pay for it.
Happy wife happy life! 5/5
Thank you for opening in Pacifica! I am so excited to be writing a review for this place. They are motivating, friendly, and very clean! (I'm a germ a phob when it comes to feet). Every work out is different and the trainers motivate me to work harder. I have been part of many gyms and I appreciate how much the trainers are involved in coaching and teaching correct techniques. I look forward to kicking some bags and getting in shape!
YOU STOPPED ME FROM CHECKING IN PLACES 5/5
YOU STOPPED LETTING ME CHECK IN TO PLACES?????? I never get any badges since I 1st started using the app and also how come when I check in every day at the same time I am told that it is my 3rd check in?? YOUR APP, SWARM, IS ALWAYS WRONG ABOUT CHECK-INS, BASICALLY YOUR APP IS USELESS???!!!!??!!!!
Withholding Ratings & Reviews, WHY? 1/5
By Glen Giggity Giggity
I loved Urban Spoon and for a long time I have found FourSquare a descent substitute. Lately, FourSquare have decided to only display restaurants of their choosing. I travel four days a week, exclusively by airplane and on foot. When I’m standing in the doorway of a restaurant, I expect its rating to be displayed , especially when I sort by distance. Yet lately, I find even nicely rated restaurants missing unless I enter the name manually. Pay to play required of restaurants? Unacceptable.
I have tried many times to edit my business listing to include my website, phone number, hours, and Facebook page, but even though I save my edits they do not appear after saving.
Good food and good times 5/5
I travel a lot and frequently like to find the local spots that are good or are less well known. This app is perfect for that. Some of the best food I’ve had and some of the best times I’ve had with family and friends trying new places has been made possible by this app!!
Terrible customer service 1/5
By Rick Kirk
This company has the very worst customer service of any modern day app. You can’t call so you are forced to send emails. It takes days for a response and when they finally do respond it is with a canned, automatic response. Extremely frustrating. Don’t waste your time with these guys. Terrible!
Junk, it doesn't even load... 1/5
Fail to load
