Foursquare For Android: Social Gaming & Marketing Revolution

Jacob S Paulsen

I believe that mobile technology is at the heart of freedom. I believe that your phone is a tool of production and that the key to unlocking a new age of productivity and effectiveness is leveraging correctly the tool you take everywhere.

    I feel like Foursquare is losing momentum in the location notification scene. Yelp has an app that I feel is better because you get reviews and info about the place as well as the ability to check in. Also, Google Latitude is picking up steam with its continuous updates of your location. If you want to be on the cutting edge (granted, with less wide-spread use so far), I recommend these instead.

    I’m torn on the Foursquare vs Yelp debate. Foursquare is the inovator and is number 1 in the “check in” game but Yelp is more established over all and is already branded as the user review center. Yelp is now a one stop shop but I also want to be involved in the most popular and largest network for each service.

    I prefer Gowalla over Foursquare myself. I like that inherently the game is meant to be played at places you go instead of gaming the system to check-in across the ocean with Foursquare.

    Foursquare Android app is slow. Its usability is also not high. Servers are often down. Majorships are given quite sporadically, or not given at all. Lots of duplicate locations, I reported sone, but nothing happened, they are still there.
    No new features I saw for a long time.
    In short. Foursquare was innovative but it is dying at the moment.
