    Forsquare is a very popular geotagging application and as it grows they need to keep their applications up to date, and thats just what they did. Just three days ago released V2 of their android application for all you F-square lovers to rejoice. This new version comes with To-does and Tips in two different locations, and also brought the fun online.

    Now are there any F-square users in our forum?

    I Am!

    Unfortunately, on my Droid incredible, after the update I no longer get points for checking in anywhere. It's really ruining my foursquare experience...

    New places, the same old places..nothing. I haven't gotten a badge since either.
    But as usual, it seems I'm the only person its happening to.

    Is that some sort of facebook thing? I see people tweeting sometimes about it.

    I'm pretty sure they did away with the points system. Also my phone now requires GPS to find nearby places. This is stupid because my GPS doesn't work so well inside. So if my GPS isn't working, I can't check in places

    It's alot faster, but the location finding seems to be worse now than before.

    My fix is just to search for the location I'm in, it usually does a good job of finding the place I've just walked into. Last night I searched for the Olive Garden I was eating in, and it popped up right away. Even though it listed me as 250 yards away, still let me check in.

    Is this for those who don't know what to do? So they seek internet advise based on your location. crap..

    I'm starting to get tired of Foursquare. Every single night after around 6pm, all I get is "can't connect to server, overcapacity" errors.

    I have been having the same problems since the update a few days ago. I have tried severing my connection with facebook and twitter then reconnecting like a lot of the forums say......that did nothing, any updates on this??
