Foursquare for iPhone was updated version 6.0 today. The update brings the Explore functionality to the forefront of the app. Explore is Foursquare’s recommendation engine, which suggests attactions that users may find interesting based on their previous check-ins.
The new update brings the Explore search box to the top of the navigation bar, enabling quick access to the feature, which now serves up results faster than ever.
When you’re walking down the street and looking for a spot to grab a bite, it’s great to be able to find a place quickly. With today’s release, we’ve updated Explore to show you more recommendations on a single screen, so you can easily compare results and make decisions faster.
Just like before, we’ll show you the relevant info to help you decide: you can quickly see the ratings, friends who have been, money-saving specials, and useful insider tips. Tap through on a place to see even more, like directions and menu items.
