The long-awaited update to the Foursquare app has arrived, turning it into a personalized location finder for places you’ll likely enjoy going to. Upon opening the app, users will be asked to pick a menu from around 10,000 ‘tastes,’ which range from ‘Specialty Cocktails’ to ‘Comfortable Seats’. From then on, the app will point users towards places it thinks they’ll enjoy.
Alongside this users can still follow fellow users, be they experts in a particular category or other people they know, and leave ‘tips’ on locations they’ve been to. Tips also tie into the new ‘expertise’ system, which adds recognition for users who leave useful tips, allowing them to become ‘experts’ for a specific category or neighborhood.
The updated Foursquare app is available on the App Store now and is free to download.
