Recommendations from your favorite publications’ websites, straight to your phone!
From restaurant reviews to shopping guides, it’s often the publications that we read every day that inspire us to try new places.
Starting today, you can save those places you read about online straight to your foursquare To-Do List, without leaving the article you’re reading. Just look for the ‘Save to foursquare’ button, which you’ll now find sitting pretty on tons of your favorite websites, from Time Out to CBS.
When you click on a ‘Save to foursquare’ button, a window will pop up confirming the place you want to add, and that’s it! It’s on your phone. Now, foursquare will remind you about it the next time you’re out and about. If you’re using Radar, we’ll buzz your phone when you’re around the corner.
There are loads of publications using the button on their reviews, profiles, and guides.
