Business Insider is reporting that Twitter is planning to team up with Foursquare in 2015, "adding a location layer to its platform" to make it more relevant and interesting for users.
Google is making a push to show Glass as a great tool for travel with the addition of TripIt, Foursquare, and Open Table apps for the $1,500 face computer (that's in addition to Field Trip, Word Lens, Google Now, Search and Maps). Looks like they're actually trying to sell it.
Foursquare is about to radically change the way you use it faltering service—or at least, that's what it hopes to do with a forthcoming app called Swarm. The new app will be centered around a more general idea of where your friends are, rather than a specific spot on a map.
Starting today, you'll be able to order from GrubHub and Seamless restaurants directly from Foursquare. In addition to the usual info you see when you look up a restaurant, you'll also see the option to order from participating joints. Which is kind of weird because Foursquare is about going places and delivery is…
Most cities evolved based on centuries of complex economic and cultural forces. But what would it look like if that process were reversed? That's the concept behind Generating Utopia, a program that turns a user's location-based data into a sprawling, Rio de Janeiro-style cityscape.
Well, Foursquare just got a lot more annoying (assuming you use Android). Starting today, Android users everywhere might start noticing unsolicited pocket buzzes offering tips and hints Foursquare thinks you care about. Fortunately, you can turn it off if you so desire—which, you know, you probably will.
Google Maps is pretty great. So is Foursquare and Yelp and Instagram. Now imagine combining the best of all those and what you get is Citymaps. It's a brand new type of map for iOS that lets you explore what's around you and share it with friends.
In spite of iOS and Android's quest towards world domination, it's easy for us overprivileged first-world residents to forget that the spread of the smartphone doesn't affect everyone. In fact, only half of all mobile phones shipped in 2013 are expected to be smartphones. The rest are the slower, clunkier, and…
Next time you check in at a local coffee shop you might see an ad. As expected, Foursquare has just rolled out ads to its mobile apps.
Foursquare's latest update to its iOS app now lets you check friends in, so you're not all blankly staring at your phones and ignoring each other. Don't worry, you'll have to give your friends explicit permission to do so. Just check under the settings tab. [Foursquare]
If there's one thing Foursquare actually does right, it's fantastic visualizations of where we've all collectively checked-in. The latest, called the Time Machine, focuses squarely on you and not everyone.
Foursquare just launched a neat new tool that allows you to view the last year of your life in Foursquare check-ins. Don't worry! It's more than a depressingly reductive view of your life as the summation of activities on a social network. It's actually really cool.
Foursquare for iPhone just overhauled its suggestions, so you'll get personalized tips the second you open the app.
We all see the occasional check-in on our social networks of choice, but Foursquare took a whole year of them, and crammed them into one glorious minute of glowing information. The whole mess of data is condensed down into a color-coded 24-hour span so you can see how people—Foursquarers at least—dart around their…
Foursquare for iPhone added speedier check-ins! Just hold, swipe, and save yourself those precious half-seconds.
If you plotted out all the check-ins made on Foursquare, you should be able to get a pretty good handle on the geographic layout of a city. It's like modern day map making or check-in cartography. So do you think you can recognize a city just by its Foursquare check-ins?
Graph Search, which we're going to call Facebook search from here on out because nobody wants to read or write "Graph Search," is a dramatic new way to browse Facebook. But its implications spill over its rivals—which companies lose the most?
