Foursquare 8.0

Foursquare just launched their app redesign that focuses on location-based recommendations. Foursquare's move to splitting Foursquare and moving check-ins to their new app Swarm has angered many long time users. I, on the other hand, am part of a minority that is excited to try out the new Foursquare app. I rarely used Foursquare in the past for it's main functionality — checking-in, so the app split doesn't bother me. I've yet to find a favorite app in the 'find new things to do/places to eat around me' category and the new Foursquare app has a good chance of occupying that spot on my iPhone, with its vast database of user check-ins and tips.
