Foursquare just updated its iPhone app, streamlining the check-in process.Now, there’s a dedicated “check in” button in the middle of the iPhone app menu bar, and some other cosmetic changes.
It doesn’t require any fewer steps, but it looks like check-ins will be faster now than before.
Foursquare has also moved the “specials nearby” listing — showing Foursquare deals, which may eventually be a revenue driver for the company — to the “Explore” section of the app, away from the check-in process.
This makes sense, people are more likely to care about special deals before they go somewhere than after they’re already checking in someplace.
