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.
