If the user comes to a venue page through the Explore tab, he or she is likely deciding whether or not to go to that place, Foursquare deduces. The updated app displays the venue’s rating, contact information, hours and, if applicable, menu.
If the user has already checked in to a location, its hours are less relevant. In that use case, the venue page displays who else has checked in and popular tips — “to make sure you order right,” Foursquare said.
The venue page also displays options for users to rate the venue and leave a tip.
All venue pages now feature bigger, swipable photos at the top.
The app will come to iPhone “soon,” Foursquare said.
Foursquare launched the iPhone update December 17.
