Foursquare 4.2 packs Explore remake and more
Foursquare updated its iOS (App Store) and Android (Market) apps Wednesday to roll in some of the features seen from the web. Explore now has contextual results for locations, such as pushing restaurants to the top at dinnertime, what friends have been doing, and whether they're on lists. A filter lets users skew the results to look for undiscovered places or those friends visit frequently.
It's now likewise possible just to drag the map marker around and check the points of interest in an arbitrary location, rather than just near a device's reported location.
The restaurant menu feature from the web is carrying over as well and now gives a glance at what's available from those locations that choose to participate. Listings can equally involve hours to help Foursquare members plan their trips.
Both Android and iOS have equal upgrades. The BlackBerry version of the app will get its corresponding update "soon."
