Foursquare Listens To Users, Reintroduces Check-In Feature (Kind Of)
Foursquare has finally listened to the large amount of feedback they are receiving about their new Swarm App. Users are frustrated and still want to use Foursquare to check-in to their favourite locations.
Initially Foursquare totally removed the check-in feature from their app – forcing users to download and use Swarm app for check-ins.
In Foursquare’s latest update the have returned some basic check-in functionality inside the Foursquare app. See this screenshot showing the new design:
However when you press the ‘Check-in’ button the Swarm app is opened up and you then check-in there.
This is an improvement, but not ideal.
Also, many have said they are sad to see the old Foursquare logo retired. It did have international recognition - give the users what the want Foursquare, keep at what you were doing well and don’t push the innovation beyond what users are willing to accept.
