Who was not a happy camper when Foursquare suddenly decided to take their self-named app, rip the fun part — check-ins — out of the app, and put it into a new app named Swarm? Me, that’s who.
It really torqued me off that an app that I had enjoyed for years was suddenly breaking into two apps. Hell, that’s almost as bad as what Facebook did, forcing users to load another app (Facebook Messenger) to do something they’d always been able to do from within the iOS Facebook app. Well, the new Foursquare app, AKA version 8.0, arrived today, so I decided to take a hit for the team and install it.
I’ve never been a Foursquare user (I have no friends I want to track and vice versa) so, while I’ve heard a lot written about this subject, I have no personal experience. How about you? Has Foursquare made things better or worse for you?
