Foursquare

Foursquare continues to improve upon their Android app making it better with each new release. This time around they've focused on searching places and recommendations as well as some fixes to improve scrolling within the app:

  • Smarter searching - Every time you search with Explore, we’ll show you results based on the time of day, places your friends have been or left tips, places on lists you follow, and places we think you’ll like based on the 1,500,000,000 check-ins on foursquare. Tap the top right filter button (bottom right on Android), to narrow your results by places you and your friends have been. Try selecting ‘New to me’ and ‘My friends have been’ to catch up on what you’ve been missing out on! With every suggestion, we show you which of your friends have tried that place, so it’s easy to get suggestions and see what’s popular.
  • Recommendations for anywhere - On your way to another part of town, or a new town altogether? One big new feature: you can now drag your map around, or enter a neighborhood, city or address to get recommendations for anywhere you want. Try pinching in or out, or double tapping to zoom quickly. It’s easy to focus in on where you want to go.

In addition to those changes, Foursquare has also added some more support for Android Beam on both the Venue page, and Me page. The update is live now in the Android Market so go get it!
