Foursquare Announces New Logo, New Look & Revamped Functionality

After announcing the separation of it’s core functionality into 2 apps recently; Check-Ins with Swarm, Recommendations with Foursquare, the company has just announced their new logo and new look to the main app, revamping its functionality.

Our logo is changing from the check-in checkmark to something representing the new Foursquare. We designed it to be a mix of map pin and superhero emblem. We’ve always thought of Foursquare as giving you superpowers to explore your city, and our new logo reflects that vision. It’s coming soon to a homescreen near you.

We wanted to give everyone a peek at what’s coming. Here’s what you see when you open the new Foursquare. No two people view the world exactly the same, so no two people will have the same experience with the app. Once you teach Foursquare a couple things about you – add tastes, follow experts, or even just walk around for a few days – the app will be 100% yours.

For now, if you would like to Check-In, do it with the new Swarm app. This new Foursquare app will be released for public download very soon.
