Foursquare today announced that it has made a significant revision to its applications for the Android and iOS platforms, which will become available later today. One of the biggest changes is the inclusion of a new "Explore" tab. This tab will let users explore (i.e., search for) the different places/venues that are nearby. According to Foursquare it will show results that are relavant to that user's check-in patterns as well as that of the user's Foursquare friends. The new application will also let users access more information about themselves, and their friends with the "Me" tab. The new Foursquare application features a wholly re-realized leaderboard section for tracking checkins, points, and badges. Last, Foursquare is going to add six new types of specials that merchants can offer to their most loyal customers (i.e., those who are Mayor, etc.). The app will also more clearly display where nearby specials are located. Foursquare said that the 3.0 version of the application will be made available to the BlackBerry platform later this week.
