Foursquare Finally Checks Into App Store With iOS 7 Makeover

foursquare70

Foursquare released a new update for its iPhone app today that finally brings the app in-line with iOS 7’s new white and minimal UI along with some new enhancements that make the app more socially aware than ever before.

The updated Foursquare 7.0 app now delivers location-based push notification to your device whenever you arrive at a destination. The new push notifications will alert users of nearby deals, or give you recommendations on a restaurant before you even open the app.

One of the other major improvements is the Check-in Feed which has undergone a major redesign. Gone away is the old map in favor of a more compact timeline that shows your friends’ recent activity, though you can still pull down to view where your friends are at on a map, as well as toggle the Worldwide/Nearby switch.

The new update isn’t just about looks though.  Foursquare has decided to make the app more interesting each time you use it by shuffling your feed each time you open it to help users discover new tips,  nearby money-saving specials, as well as what your friends are up to tonight.

iPhone users can grab the free update from the App Store.

Here are the full release notes:

Everything is new! Foursquare has been completely redesigned for iOS 7. It’s smarter, faster, and has a whole new look.

It’s smarter: When you arrive somewhere new, we tell you what you need to know (like the best thing to order or a money-saving special), even if you don’t open the app.

More of what’s nearby: We shuffle the deck every time you open the app so you don’t miss a thing. Just swipe to explore great tips, find money-saving specials near you, and check out the feed to see where your friends are tonight.

Enjoy the all-new Foursquare, a smarter, faster, and more beautiful way to keep up and meet up with your friends.

    Did they kill the private check-in in this version? It looks like it and that’s very big loss.
