That counts for special chars as well, like the danish æ, ø and å.
The error is triggered when trying to check-in, and the name of the venue contains any (Well, a wild guess really) special characters

I'm getting it consistently with venues with Thai characters - perhaps the venue isn't escaped or isn't using UTF-8? This is a showstopper for Thai users.

The problem is still there :( This makes the app practically unusable in most non-anglophone countries, as well as with French (for example) restaurants in anglophone countries as their names often include special characters.
