4th & Mayor v2 Hits Marketplace With Loads Of New Features

4th and Mayor, the highly rated foursquare app got updated to v2 with many new features and bug fixes.

Here are some of them,

  • The ‘places’ are gone from the main page – there’s a new check-in experience now, just touch the “check-in” button at the bottom of the main page to open up the list of nearby places (it’s fast!)
  • This retires the dedicated ‘Shout’ button – Foursquare’s decided that going forward it makes more sense to only attach shouts to check-ins, so that’s where it is
  • Trending places near you have moved away from the check-in experience and into the ‘explore’ feature
  • Explore adds the new Outdoors category
  • Explore now holds both nearby specials as well as the trending places nearby, instead of those polluting the nearby places list
  • You can add friends right from the main page of the app now, it is no longer hidden away
  • Check out 7-day rolling progress on points in any profile – including their high points, current points and so on.
  • Explore the leaderboard
  • Check out the top places your friends have gone in the past 6 months
  • Check out the categories that your friends enjoy checking in to
  • You can add new places
  • You can add photos to checkins
  • Much improved responsiveness.
