Foursquare Update Brings Explore to the Forefront of the App

Foursquare has been updated to version 6.0, which includes a significant redesign that brings the Explore section to the forefront of the app. Previously Explore’s search capabilities were hidden away, requiring a tap to access the search menu.
With the new Foursquare 6.0, we've crunched our billions of check-ins to instantly show you the most interesting things nearby. They're insights that only Foursquare can deliver, the moment you open up the app. We also put search front-and-center, so you can find whatever you're craving fast.

The updated app provides a text search bar at the top of the home screen and a robust autocomplete engine provides quicker location suggestions and search results.

The overall look of the app has changed, with Foursquare combining previously separated sections into one major feed that lists friend check-ins, restaurant recommendations, and trending locations. Checking in, the cornerstone of the app, can now be accomplished with by tapping a prominent button on the home screen.

Foursquare is a free iPhone app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

That floating checkin icon is just bizarre (and wrong). The whole navigation feels very confused.

Yeah the floating check in icon looks weird. Still need some time with it to get used to the new look and feel.
