Foursquare added new features for the latest version of its app. It includes the Explore tab, that gives more opportunity to users to explore what they are looking for. The new Foursquare 3.0 also gives new leaderboard with points for check-ins. The other features include discovery of new places, getting groups together etc.
"We"ve long wanted to build those things that can augment your experience of the real world – software that introduces you to new places and new experiences – and with the launch of foursquare 3.0 we"re getting a little closer to that vision," said Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley in his blog.
Foursquare said that it will introduce some more changes to the app in coming weeks. This may include six new types of Foursquare Specials for merchants. The Foursquare Specials for business will offer to swarms, groups of friends, regulars, newbies, Mayors or any others.
A similar kind of Android Foursquare app will be available for Apple iOS devices and BlackBerry. But the features on the new app will be different. Foursquare also hinted the launch of dedicated app for Windows Phone and Symbian devices.
