Have you noticed anything new on your Android or iOS smartphone? More specifically, an update notification for Foursquare? Now it might not seem special until you have updated and opened the app.
Foursquare has made a major update for both platforms which includes a total redesign of the interface. It receives a major overhauled to resemble cleaner, more modern social apps such as Google Plus, Pinterest, and Path. Notice that I wrote social? While the previous interface had social aspects such as seeing where your friends have been, the social aspect has been taken front and center. Now you just have the Friends, Explore, and Me tabs with the Check-in button at the upper right hand corner.
It’s now much easier to get to where you want to go; if you want to see your badges, check which places are of interest near your location, and even like and comment on where your friends have checked-in.
