Accurate reviews and ratings
Foursquare boasts advice from a global community and lets you keep track of the locations you’ve visited.
With this app, you join a massive community filled with people who love exploring and discovering hidden gems. The forum is beneficial and insightful, and helps you find locations to visit that may not be in the local tour guide book.
Foursquare keeps a list of your favorite locations you want to one day visit and the gems you plan to visit next week. You can add to this index anytime you want. If you'd like, you can also organize these to plan vacations and road trips well in advance.
You also have the option to browse the app and start to make lists, but you’ll receive personalized recommendations for the locations you’ve added or are currently visiting. This is one of the best ways to stumble upon great scenery or a unique little cafe on a random street corner.
Once you’re on vacation, you can build a history of the locations you’ve visited. The app lets you add pictures, names, and even a description to ensure you’ll always remember the experience.
However, this app quickly swarms with bugs. At times the filters won’t work and instead display all results instead of a refined set of search results. History can also decide not to work and show an incomplete or non-existent set of the places you’ve been. It’s a great app but can improve the journaling component of experiences for the future.
Where can you run this program?
Foursquare is available on IOS 10.0 and up as well as Android 4.4 and later.
Is there a better alternative?
No. There isn’t an all-in-one app that’s as intuitive as Foursquare. However, Reddit is a great way to connect with people and learn about new locations to visit and learn other travel tips.
Foursquare is a simple and useful app when it works, and can help you discover hidden treasures on any vacation. It has a comfortable interface and plenty to offer for the average traveler.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you’re planning a vacation or want to unearth new spots around the block, this app is a good choice.
