SXSWi T-Shirt Swag – Day 5

Reading time: 1 min

We’re in the home stretch, I can finally see an end to my  pile of SX t-shirt adventure.

Today’s shirt is a front-runner for the best of the group because its simple, straightforward, fits well and its one from one of my social networks,  Foursquare who had an awesome outside space during SXSW with a great foursquare court (see below).

The only criteria that fans needed to fulfil was to answer two simple questions. What do you like about Foursquare and what would you add/change to it.

My answers where as follows.

I like that 4sqr has become almost mainstream, at least in Montreal. It is definitely not at the level of use I’ve seen in places like SF, NYC or Austin I expect we’ll catch up soon.

The one feature I would add is one that Gowalla used to have. The ability to insert designated messages to friends who check into locations where you have left comments specifically for them. This was a feature that wasn’t used by most since they removed it in version 2.0. I wasn’t very happy about that because I had personally used it with great success.
