Foursquare’s main iOS app was refreshed earlier today with some new 3D Touch goodies and a redesigned interface on the iPad. Foursquare for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad was part of the initial wave of third-party applications that enabled support for handy Home screen shortcuts via 3D Touch on the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Today’s update added 3D Touch-based Peek and Pop gestures, meaning you can now preview content within the app and pop right into it, without lifting a finger off the screen.

Peeking and Popping

As shown on the screenshots top of post and below, you can apply pressure to various pieces of content within the Foursquare app. For instance, you can preview a place surfaced through search or in your feed by pressing it firmly.

Keep holding while peeking and move your finger upward to bring up a sheet with three options: Add to List, Share and Stop Recommending This Place. Press deeper to go full screen.

3D Touch works in a couple other places in the app, too. For instance, you can press a map firmly to preview it. Again, moving your finger upward whilst peeking lets you open the full map view in Apple Maps or Google Maps.

As mentioned, the team’s updated the Foursquare experience on the iPad app with new designs and full support for Split View and Slide Over multitasking modes in iOS 9.

“And, in a bunch of cities, Foursquare now shows the top list of trending places each week,” according to release notes accompanying the 23.8-megabyte download.

Availability

Foursquare requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 8.0 or later.

The app is localized in English, Catalan, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Russian.

Grab Foursquare for iOS at no charge in the App Store.

    Hello,

    I’m on an iPhone 6+ 8.4 JB. Every time time I scroll down the article to get the comments section, the site gets very buggy. Starting from when the ads pop up. My scrolling stops getting registered? Which makes me click a lot of the ads. The article part scrolls fine only when the ads start, everything gets really buggy. Sometimes to the extent where Safari has to reload the page and it says “there has been and error on this page” or whatever it says. Only happens on this site, at every article. Even as I type this it’s very buggy. Never used to be like this.

    What’s happening!?!?
