Introducing Foursquare for the iPad, the best way to plan your holiday travels.
Since the new Foursquare came out a few months ago, people have been telling us that they do a lot of their planning on their iPad, and they want a version of Foursquare designed just for it. Today, that version is ready, and you can now download the all-new Foursquare for your iPad.
So next time you’re trying to figure out what to do for your next trip or even just next weekend, fire up Foursquare. It’s focused on helping you plan smarter. Choose your city, and you’ll get a personalized list of all the great places there. And, with one-tap, you can easily save anything you like to your dream itinerary.
Last month, Maryam Aly and I gave a workshop for NYU tech week where we spoke about how Natural Language Processing is integrated into the Foursquare app and our technology stack. Later, we gave the students a hands-on introduction to the nltk toolkit.
Hakka Labs took video of the first part of the workshop and posted it. Here is it:
