Hot on the heels of releasing a new app for Windows Phone, Foursquare today has released new apps for both iOS and Android. The focus of this update is on bringing improved local search to the millions of users who use Foursquare, making it easier to discover places of interest around them. Foursquare says that with this update, the service will help users find exactly what they want, “whatever that may be.”
Foursquare users can now really fine tune their local searches, results can be filtered in a variety of ways, such as only displaying venues that are open at the time or search or the places that a user’s friends have previously visited. These results can then be sorted by best match, price or distance. Though if tinkering around with filters in the app isn’t your cup of tea, Foursquare recommends tapping the “Best Nearby” button to get an idea of what amazing venues are present in the vicinity. The newly updated Foursquare app for iOS and Android can now be downloaded from iTunes App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.
