Marsbot is your trusted friend that can recommend places to you by learning from your preferences and the places you go every day. Marsbot helps you discover new places by learning what you like and then sending you recommendations via text. Unlike a chatbot or personal assistant, Marsbot isn't here to answer your questions or help you do your laundry; instead Marsbot pays attention to your habits and learns about the places you go. From there, Marsbot can send you suggestions about great places to eat and drink that are worth seeking out nearby. Marsbot uses text messages to deliver recommendations so we currently require a US phone number in order to sign up. A note on battery – We've spent years developing the location technology that powers Marsbot, Foursquare, and Swarm, 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.
