What is Foursquare?


Foursquare is a mobile app which creates search-results based on the user’s interests.

The app is responsive to the user in terms of basing results on where the person has been going, and by responding to customer input about what they like.

Foursquare will recommend places for the user to visit based on such guidelines.

The City Guide, as expected, is designed to help people to discover new places by providing them with recommendations from the community.
