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.
