    Foursquare, once a location-based social network that allows people to become the king of their favorite resturant or see which friends and neighbers were (or weren't) around, has now morphed into a Yelp compteitor aimed at helping its users find the best places to eat, drink, shop, or see the sights. In order to focus solely on getting better information and better reviews for the venues across the globe, Foursquare has split itself from one app into two: Foursquare, focused on reviews and discovery, and Swarm, focused on check-in and finding friends nearby.

    Foursquare understand that best can be relative. The Italian restaurant that's best to your alfredo-loving friend may not be best for your calzone-crazed tastes. Foursquare uses where you've been and your tastes to help you find the best place to go no matter where you are or what you're craving. As you give reviews and tips on venues, your Expertise will rise and your input will be given more importance, and you can choose friends or trusted reviewers to follow and see their picks in your search results.

    If you're preparing to visit a new place, you can browse restaurants and save interesting venues for later, making sure that you don't forget to hit up that little hole-in-the-wall with the best darn short ribs this side of the Mississippi. Foursquare will even try to guess what you're in the mood for, which can be extra helpful if you have absolutely no clue what you want to eat. They also have more specific classifications for many type of meals and tastes to help you further narrow down your criteria for a killer dinner spot, and they'll share which of those tastes are nearby when you open the app.
