Tips

All tips that you write (and the photos you attach to them) will be viewable by the public. Please keep this mind whenever you choose to leave a tip!

Tips are public notes that you leave at a place for other Foursquare users about experiences you recommend (or recommend be avoided) such as: "Get the off-menu butterscotch milkshake" or "Stay away during the morning coffee rush. You'll get better service after 11am!" Think of tips as a piece of insider knowledge you would share with a friend to make their experience at a favorite place that much better.

To add a tip, go to a location page in the mobile app and scroll down. Tap the 'add a tip' button and write a little piece of wisdom (and upload a photo!) to leave behind for future visitors. You can also tap on the blue tip icon at the top right of the home screen. You'll see a list of the places you’ve visited recently and a search bar to quickly look up places from the past to easily leave more tips.

To edit a tip, find the tip you want to change on the listing on the web and click the ‘Edit’ button. Note that you can currently only edit tips via the web and not the mobile app, with the exception of adding a photo to a tip in the app.

To delete a tip you've added via the mobile app, tap through to the tip detail, then scroll down and hit 'delete.' On the web, click the time/date on the tip, hover over the tip detail, and click the gray 'x' that appears.
