The popular location-based app has rolled out an update that allows users to search for individual menu items, then be directed to nearby restaurants serving that item, according to a blog post on their website.
This smartphone app is used to “check in” to places to let friends know where you are. Now, users can search for particular dishes and Foursquare will go through a menu database to find a place nearby.
Foursquare uses data from menu partners Locu and SinglePlatform to comb through 43 million menu items and 500,000 restaurants, according to CNET.
A few weeks ago, the app also debuted an update that allows users to write their recommendations of eateries and places they love, according to their blog.
Foursquare is an app that already caters towards finding places, so it is only fitting that the app has an option to explore menu items, and we can’t wait to use it.
