Foursquare Adds Notifications – Android First to Get the New Feature

Posted by at 9:20 pm on July 5, 2011

Foursquare has done a minor redesign of the notifications feature launching with the free Android app first. Both the mobile app and the website now have a badge that will show notifications of activity among friends. Check-ins and photos, completed tips, and changes in swarming or trends will all be available without interrupting the core app.

Notification control is fine-grained and lets users turn on or off device and e-mail notices for certain events. They can also temporarily turn off all notifications, either for an hour during a brief stint or until the following day.

The company promised BlackBerry and iPhone updates “as quick as possible” but didn’t say when.
