Foursquare Foursquare Adds Business Hours Of Operation [Update] Foursquare Adds Business Hours Of Operation [Update] Read More is rolling out a new update for its Android application on Google Play with improvements to search, added emphasis on the explore option, and some new changes to navigation. Foursquare claims that it is seeing an increase in Android users relying on the application to find places to go, and as such, the company has really focused on making it easier for Android users to find what they are looking for and get there as quickly as possible.

Foursquare’s Explore map Foursquare Launches Browser-Based Version Of Recommendation Engine Explore [News] Foursquare Launches Browser-Based Version Of Recommendation Engine Explore [News] Foursquare is bringing Explore, a popular feature from their mobile platform, over to browsers. Explore is designed to use the billions of check-ins and millions of tips left by Foursquare users to help find places... Read More is now placed directly on the top of Android users’ home screens. This is actually different from the iOS version of the app, as the Friends tab resides there. Foursquare is tuning its app to what it perceives as the needs of device owners, and that is certainly a good way to go.

Navigating the app has also been adjusted, with Foursquare jumping into the slide-out drawer style of navigation. Many apps are going with this form of navigating because it makes getting around to the different sections of the app quicker, and Foursquare has embraced this with the new update.

This update helps Foursquare reinforce its newly launched sharable venues pages. It also goes a long way towards what seems to be Foursquare’s ultimate goal, which is to become more than just a place for users to share where they are. The company wants its service to become a complete discovery engine, and this new update to its Android application helps the social media app move in that general direction.

Foursquare is rolling the update out gradually, so you may or may not see it available on your device just yet. If you don’t, be patient, and you should see it soon.

    Guys, I have downloaded "Datasaver - dot apps studio" Android app to allow/block selected apps to access mobile data and Wi-Fi data.

    It helps me a lot to save mobile data on 4G.

    Geo-tracking apps like FourSquare freak me out. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but as we've seen all too well with Facebook, privacy options can be changed by the company without us knowing.

    Plus I don't ever want to be known as the Mayor of McDonald's unless I get the cool Mayor McCheeseburger costume as well.

    At first I liked Foursquare, but later I realized that I have Facebook's Check Places, also Google+'s own check, so FourSquare seemed redundant to me. I've uninstalled from my phone's precious storage. However I still miss FourSquare's badges and achievements.

        Just because of limited RAM problems on my smartphone. The more programs I install and they keep themselves on ram, my phone lags badly.
