Foursquare android app: some regressions

the worst regression i noticed when i updated 4sq app some days ago was that the “explore” tab was redesigned, and the “places” tab wasn’t there anymore… wtf?!?

usabililty got worse, we lost a compact and useful view of places nearby the location we are

more, it seems to me that many venues had become unreachable by this explore page and there’s no search tool inside…

( edit )

GUI is worse than before, because half of the screen is wasted in graphics (giant buttons… why are so big?),

and the old list of nearby venues is reachable clicking on checkin button
