There's a couple of huge fails on this app that make me less than interested in really exploring this more. But first, let's talk about what this is supposed to be.
This app is basically foursquare, gowalla or some other such check in app, but add to it societies you can join to learn more about different things you might like in the types of places you visit. In theory it seems a lot like a personalized Yelp combined with Foursquare.
But really, to me thus far, I'm just not interested. Why? Because when I type in something that it can find I get spinning wheel of death. No option to add a place comes up and it doesn't seem to stop the spinning wheel on it's own. I suppose that's not a huge deal but it is annoying. The second thing I'm not fond of is that the societies seem less than interesting to me. Some of them might be great but, well, it's another check in app and I just don't need help finding great new places and things to do... that's what facebook and yelp are for.
If you have time for another checkin app definitely check this out... other people love it. If you're already too taxed with the apps you have, skip this until it becomes THE checkin app.
