Why not Foursquare?

rickwebb:

For everyone looking for a good map application that actually knows where Bloomberg is (or, my perennial annoyance, General Assembly, which Google Maps still can’t find), might I recommend Foursquare? It’s pretty much the best map system if you’re trying to find a building, office, landmark or venue.

If only this were true. I love foursquare, but their search sucks compared to Yelp search. It’s much slower, far less forgiving of spelling mistakes and not as good at making search suggestions.

I'm a superuser on foursquare and an "elite" user on Yelp. I use both of these services a lot. For now, I'm confident in saying that Yelp search is simply better than foursquare search.
