Foursquare out of Beta

Just in time for SXSW, foursquare is now available in the iTunes store. [Previously.]


I just went looking for it and was almost deterred by the several other apps with almost exactly the same name. I think I found the right one in the end though...excited to try it out.

The predicted highlight, and low light of Austin this week. The low light, as everyone tries to pack into one bar because of it.

Eh, I like the concept but the execution isn't quite there.

1) No private feed? For the exact locations and timings of my dining and drinking habits? This is just irresponsible.
2) Their site and app are just not polished. I'm logged in and there are several links on the site telling me to log in or create an account.
3) Their location database is just not good, at least for NYC. This is the same reason I didn't use dodgeball- if I'm going to do data entry for a startup, I should get paid for it.
