Foursquare Gives iPhone Users Real-Time Recommendations & Rolls Out 2 New Search Features

foursquare-logoFoursquare announced three new upgrades today. The location sharing app has extended its ‘Real-Time Recommendations‘ to iPhone users, and added two new search features: a ‘Nearby’ button and the ‘Friends at a Glance’ feature that displays most recent check-ins by friends.

According to the announcement, the app’s look and feel has also been updated with, “A simple feed that shows you what’s most relevant nearby, right now.”

While the ‘Real-time Recommendations’ has been available to Android users since August, Foursquare says the feature that makes automatic recommendations is now available to a limited number of iPhone users, with access to it, “Expanding more every day.” The new ‘Nearby’ button, defined by Foursquare as a ‘Right Now’ feature, allows users to see which friends may be closest to their current location.

For the ‘Friends at a Glance’ upgrade, Foursquare says users can go beyond each friend’s most recent check-ins by tapping on their profile to find more details.
