Foursquare 2.0 Now Available in the Android Market

October 4, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Just 10 days after Foursquare released the second-generation version of its iPhone app, Foursquare 2.0 for Android has arrived in the Android Market.

The Android edition sports all of the features found in the iPhone version, including a new emphasis on Tips and To-Dos, which are now split up and given prominent placement in the application’s bottom navigation bar.

Foursquare also now visually alerts users when they are near venues tagged on their To-Do lists. Tips are now ranked by popularity and featured more prominently on venue pages.

Along with the apps, Foursquare has rolled out an accompanying set of web-based features to better tie mobile activity with web discovery. Among the features is a recently released, embeddable “Add to My Foursquare” button for publishers, which allows users to add a venue or Tip they read about on the web as a To-Do item in the app.

While no release date has yet been announced for BlackBerry devices, version 2.0 should be making its way to the BlackBerry App World shortly.
