5 star ratings systems have never made sense to me. 3 stars have been the easiest for me to comprehend and use… don’t like, meh and like

I love Foursquare’s approach and it’ll make the Explore experience even better for me (and hopefully you, too!)

Foursquare:

Instead of other sites where every place gets 3.5 stars, we come up with our scores using the same Foursquare magic that powers Explore. We look at signals like tips, likes, dislikes, popularity, loyalty, local expertise, and nearly 3 billion check-ins from over 25 million people worldwide. And, with every check-in and Explore search, our scores will get smarter and better.

A-fucking-men. 1 to 5 stars is and always has been pure shit. 1 star (bad) and 5 stars (great) makes sense. Maybe even 3 stars (okay). But what the hell are 2 and 4 stars? It’s different for everyone. And the majority of people doing the rating are usually only going to do so if they hate or love something. It’s such a better idea to use other, implicit signals.

Foursquare Connected Apps

Foursquare has some pretty nifty Connected Apps that enhance your check-ins.

If you’re unfamiliar with what Connected Apps on foursquare are, don’t worry! They are relatively new so you might not have seen any yet. Connected Apps provide you with additional info about the locations you’re checking in to. My favorite Connected App, by far, is:

After Credits

Do you wait around in the movie theater like I do to see if there is any extra footage after the credits of a film? After Credits will help you avoid waiting for a scene that will never come. When you check in to a movie theater (and indicate which movie you’re there to see), After Credits will let you know if you should stick around for some extra footage. Super neat.

You might also like these:

Untappd will show you the most popular beers at a bar you’re at
Eat This, Not That! will show you healthy dishes to order at the restaurant you just checked into

You can check out more Connected Apps on foursquare’s site: http://foursquare.com/apps/

Brew some coffee this morning and take the time to watch the latest #PandoMonthly with @dens. It’s fascinating and exciting.

#mom is such a clever use of Twilio & the foursquare API. I love it. It works well, too!
Try it out and give your mom some peace of mind.
