Mayorama could be the ultimate Foursquare companion, but it's not quite there yet
The thing is, Mayorama's not quite there yet. It has trouble grabbing your info from Foursquare (it works, it just displays a message saying that it didn't), and it can only show nearby venues. I get that being nearby means valid check-ins, but what if you just want to see whether driving across town could make you mayor? You can't, because your check-in history is the one part of the app that doesn't load.
I'm sure these problems will be cleared up with an update, but there are also some essential features for mayorship-hunters that ought to be included. A venue search would be nice, for one thing, and that has to be available in the Foursquare API. Also, the ability to check in off the grid would be really nice. It sucks to spam your friends with your repetitive mayor-seeking check-ins, and Mayorama doesn't give you the option not to broadcast. I find myself checking Mayorama and then switching to the Foursquare app to check in siliently.
This could be the app I've been looking for to put the fun back into the whole mayorship thing, but it just doesn't quite work as advertised yet. Still, for a buck, it's well worth trying.
