Foursquare has added photos inline with checkins in an update to its iPhone application Tuesday. The new version adds color to the activity stream and refreshes the look and feel of the app.
With the update, Foursquare for iPhone users will now see friends' photos and checkins coupled together in the activity stream â€” just as they would on Foursquare.com.
Users can even select "here now" to view all the photos and shouts from friends at the same venue in a single stream. "Commenting on a friend's night out? You'll see all the other photos and comments as you're composing your witty retort. Everything is in one place," says Foursquare's blog post.
The location-based social network â€” which added U.S. President Barack Obama as a celebrity user Monday â€” also retooled its iPhone application to make for a crisper and cleaner user experience. "There's a new design scheme and a cleaned-up header, and, as has been frequently requested, bigger tap targets," Foursquare says.
In early August, Foursquare gave its website a photo-facelift and started displaying images inline with checkins, foreshadowing Tuesday's iPhone app release. Foursquare promises its Android and BlackBerry users that similar features are on the way for them as well.
