- Haven't tried the new version, but it's Foursquare, so, there you go :)Foursquare is the best place discovery app yet. On par with Google Maps and works really well.
I love the directions their making in more of being a life concierge. However, I wish the recommendations were more tailored to the category. I'd love to not just fin dout about best places to eat, but where's a good tailor, where's the best local gyms, things that are even more personal.

The Google Map colors has been the sayings from inception allow other colors to be created by the user colors that they want to use not the basic colors that Google put out originally. Personalization is the only thing I can think of where color schemes chosen by the user would make the music more. also add music somehow in the background while driving it's boring just driving all day if smooth jazz was playing in the background of Torrington directions offered by the map I would listen longer I would use it .
- Pokestops and Gyms are crowdsourced based on places that people find interesting. Plus you get to catch Pokemon while you're at it. Why bother looking at old buildings when you can capture virtual battling monsters? But all jokes aside, it's actually surprising how good of a discovery tool this is (specifically for little things like murals, cool buildings, etc probably the kinds of things you wouldn't find in a tourist guide).
This game is actually amazing, but at the same time people shouldn't get obsessed with it, because afterwards it will be a waste of time, even when the game is really interesting.
I love Pokemon GO. It;s very unique and has a great idea of real life challenge. Some disadvantages don't make it perfect, but I'm looking forward to see some updates with new gameplay elements!
- Search for the hashtag of the city you are visiting. I did this in pretty much every country when I was travelling and found some really cool places that the "locals" we're visiting. One of my highlights was ending up at a jazz night in Argentina (and I was the only non-Argentinian there). Plus, people only tend to post the best of / show off worthy photos on Instagram.
- My team and I created Llama because we were largely dissatisfied with the current options out there. It's a platform for travelers to make lists of things to do on their trips which, if public, are discoverable by other travelers on Llama. It also has google-docs style collaboration for making lists together. Look for Llama on PH tomorrow!
I moved into New York and met so many amazing people through the app!! Also, joined this yoga class I discovered on it
