Why are certain venues not showing up when I try to add them to my check-in?

Problem

You know the venue exists in Foursquare and you have checked in there before - so why is it not attached to your check-ins or doesn't show up when you tap "Add Location"?

Solution

Since the app is alcohol-centric, we have started to put a limit on certain categories to determine if they should show up in the "Add Location" screen or just when selecting a venue via "Recent Venues. All of these venues do not serve alcohol and drinking at them and might be considered illegal and/or considered inappropriate. If any venue as one of these categories - it will not be allowed to be on Untappd and not show up in "Add Location" venues:
