The new Foursquare frees you from having to read long, random reviews, wondering if those people share your tastes. With Foursquare, find things based on your tastes, the places you like, and the friends and experts you trust most.
I like the idea of making better use of all the data of all the Foursquare addicts out there and the app looks great after a first spin. I hope it works out, would be a shame to see Foursquare (and my beloved check-ins) go down. And now please bring back badges and mayorships ;)
