Foursquare for Android Now Shows Suggestions Based on Whether You’re a Tourist or a LocalBy: Josh Wolford - March 14, 2013
Today, Foursquare is releasing an update to their Android app that they say will help put recommendations front and center, right when you open the app.
“When you’re in a new city or neighborhood, Foursquare will show you popular places, sites, and must-see attractions. When you’re on your home turf, we’ll tell what spots are “new and notable” – places that have recently opened in your area,” says Foursquare.
Foursquare says that the new app will also highlight places on your to-do lists and uses that to make timely recommendations.
Back in February, Foursquare updated their Android app to display a map right when you open the app, complete with friends who are checked-in nearby and recommendations. That update also improved the Explore tab and made some tweaks to search.
