The foursquare Mission
Foursquare is a mobile application that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. It is a friend-finder, a social city guide and a game that challenges users to experience new things, and rewards them for doing so. Foursquare lets users "check in" to a place when they're there, tell friends where they are and track the history of where they've been and who they've been there with.
Foursquare builds top-rated mobile applications available on iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry. We use cutting edge technologies such as Scala, Lift, and MongoDB. We also have an API that enables developers to build applications that interact with the foursquare platform.
