THE NEW FOURSQUARE

Remember Foursquare? The little app that made “geolocation” a household word? Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a popular app, but recently it’s faced fierce competition from the likes of Facebook Places, Twitter, and some obscure brunch app called Instagram.

Well Foursquare is still around, and it launched a new version the other day that might have you tapping it more often. The update¬†organizes the app more around people than around places. Upon launch, it shows the nearby hot spots, as well as recent activities from friends. If you’re in a totally new area (say, on vacation), it’ll direct you to top sites and activities. Key features, like search and check-in, are also more prominent.

No doubt it’s cool and way more functional, but is it too little, too late? Check in with your comments below.
