Unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard by now that Foursquare has released version 3.0 of their mobile app for iPhone and Android users (don’t worry Blackberry users, your version is on the way!).
The release of version 3.0 brings about some noticeable interface changes, and great additions to the app. One of these new additions, is the Explore option. The Explore option allows you to input what you’re looking for. It then takes your location, in combination with places you’ve been, places friends have visited, your loyalty to favorite places, and what’s popular overall to generate nearby options for you. There are a number of other great features that you can read about over on the Foursquare blog: http://blog.foursquare.com/2011/03/08/foursquare-3/
Foursquare 3.0 also brings about a number of new specials for businesses to get onboard with. These specials mean a whole new world of opportunity for businesses jumping on board with the service. More information on these new specials can also be found on the Foursquare blog: http://blog.foursquare.com/2011/03/09/a-whole-new-world-of-specials/
