Foursquare Launches Radar [blog.foursquare.com]
Today, we're super excited by what some of iOS 5's newest features allow us to do. Specifically, say hi to foursquare's 'Radar,' a huge step in the evolution of the foursquare vision.
Now, if you follow a list, like the 101 Best Dishes of 2011, foursquare will let you know when you're next to one. Or you save that yoga studio to your To-Do List (because you really want to try it); we can remind you when you're close. Or, better yet, if you're driving home and three of your friends are getting together nearby, we'll tell you so you can meet up. The app doesn't even have to be open, it just works. We call it foursquare Radar, because it finds things nearby that you normally wouldn't know about.
