Foursquare 2.0 iOS App Released

Foursquare has released the version 2.0 of its iOS application on Monday.

The move comes as the launch of Facebook Places threatens to weaken its standing in the location-based services market.

Foursquare has announced that the upgraded version of its iOS application will come with a number of new features, including tips, to do list, and an additional tab, tech news site the Next Web has reported.

“When we started foursquare, we dreamed it would be much more than check-ins. We really wanted to build tools that would help people collect and share their real-world experiences,” wrote the team in the company blog.

According to the blog post, ‘tips’ has been separated from the ‘to do’ list, and both the features have been scattered all through the application. A new feature, ‘add to My Foursquare’, has also been added to the app.

Founded by Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai in 2009 in New York City, the location-based social networking platform Foursquare boasts of more than three million registered users.
