Earlier today, Foursquare announced and released the #allnew4sq. You can read all about the many and vast improvements on their blog post.
Short version: It’s awesome.
We see the same inspiration and obession with detail in other companies as well. Earlier this week,Twitter announceda new version of their famous little blue bird logo.
…These two recent examples are great lessons for all of us. Take pride in your work. Pay attention and get obsessed. Don’t settle.
Woop! Super excited to download the new Foursquare. I knew there was some scheming going on behind closed doors, and whether or not the industry labels the new version a “pivot” or not is to be seen. All I know is that I have always liked Foursquare because of their constant emphasis on their users, and their undeniable obsession with product and user experience. Whether the new version is “Yelp on steroids” or better, I’ll soon find out.
