Foursquare Labs has updated its free Foursquare iOS app to version 8.0. As expected, the redesign has eliminated location check-ins — the feature which first brought Foursquare to prominence.
Users looking to check in can now only do so through Foursquare’s separate Swarm app. The new Foursquare is focused on tips and location discovery, as the app aims to find places and things based on a user’s specific tastes.
Changes can be seen immediately upon updating, as the app now features a new icon, and a bright pink-and-blue color scheme..
