Foursquare has been updated to version 6.0, which includes a significant redesign that brings the Explore section to the forefront of the app. Previously Explore's search capabilities were hidden away, requiring a tap to access the search menu.
With the new Foursquare 6.0, we've crunched our billions of check-ins to instantly show you the most interesting things nearby. They're insights that only Foursquare can deliver, the moment you open up the app. We also put search front-and-center, so you can find whatever you're craving fast.
The updated app provides a text search bar at the top of the home screen and a robust autocomplete engine provides quicker location suggestions and search results.

The overall look of the app has changed, with Foursquare combining previously separated sections into one major feed that lists friend check-ins, restaurant recommendations, and trending locations. Checking in, the cornerstone of the app, can now be accomplished with by tapping a prominent button on the home screen.

Foursquare is a free iPhone app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Sounds like it would be handy on holiday...


...International roaming wasn't so utterly extortionate that I never bother using my phone!

I never even know what this app was about
That's because they keep changing focus with every new version. When it was a check-in/gamification app, it was unique and fun. It hasn't been that for at least two major versions, and nearly all of my friends have stopped using it. I only use it as a way to create a kind of journal of where I've been with my kids -- as soon as I find a better app for that, I'm gone too.
