Foursquare updated for iOS and Android with new logo and features

We recently saw Foursquare spin off its check-in feature into a separate app called Swarm, so the main app could focus on helping you discover your surroundings better. Today its developers have released a brand new, smarter version of Foursquare for iOS and Android, which aims at being a better local guide capable of taking on the likes of Yelp and Google Maps.

You can download the update directly on your device through its respective app store or by using the following link:

Android iOS
Download from Google Play
Download from Apple App Store
Free Free
Android 4.0 or greater iOS 7.0 or greater

The updated version of Foursquare has the following new features and improvements
  • Tell Foursquare your favorite things and it gets to know you. Every search is tailored to your tastes, your past ratings, and picks from friends and experts you trust.
  • Your tastes can be very specific like “whiskey” or “salted caramel.” Or more general like “outdoor seating” or “used bookstores.”
  • Leave tips to share your best discoveries. Pay it forward and earn expertise.
  • Search for restaurants, coffee, nightlife, shops, and more. See what’s nearby or plan ahead.
  • When you arrive at a place, see insider tips: what’s good to order or something not to miss.
  • Follow people and influencers whose tastes you trust, and their tips show first. Connect your Facebook and twitter accounts and see spots your friends have liked nearby.
The Foursquare developers are still working on bringing Swarm to Windows Phone, so users on Microsoft's mobile platform will have to wait longer to get access to the new Foursquare.
