Foursquare for Android updated with new check-in screen, easier Explore and more

Foursquare for Android has received a major update (v2013-02-12) that brings easier explore features, a new slide out drawer to access your Profile & History, To-Do List and more, instead of bottom buttons and a new Maps in the home screen that shows your friends near by. The new check-in screen and check-in insights that were released for the Foursquare app for the iPhone back in December are now available for Android.

New features in Foursquare for Android

  • Explore is at the top of the home screen to quickly find new places, specials, trending places nearby and more
  • See friends and places nearby on the home screen map, and filter to show new places, places you have visited etc.
  • Access your to-do list,  Profile & History, Settings and more with the new left drawer
  • The check in button is at the bottom left that shows the current location and option to add photos to the check in
  • New check-in screen with maps in the background and check-in button at the bottom
  • Simplified experience after check in that highlights important takeaway from your visit
