Just in case you were losing sleep without it, Foursquare updated its smartphone app with one not-so-new feature. The Nearby Friends view was removed with the release of the total Foursquare redesign a couple of months ago, but now it’s back. It acts as a filter for all of your friends’ activity to just display the check-ins of friends that are in your area.
To access the Nearby Friends mode, pull down on the main screen as if you are about to refresh the feed. Lo and behold, you have the nearby friends option.
If you aren’t friends with people on Foursquare that live a far distance from you, this won’t matter at all, but a lot of Foursquare users apparently miss it enough for Foursquare to have brought it back in a spontaneous update.
The updated Foursquare app, which as a side note also includes some minor tweaks bug fixes, is available to iOS and BlackBerry users today. Android users will have to wait a little bit longer for it.
Earlier this week Bank of America customers on iOS were treated with an update on its mobile application, now it’s time for Chase to do the same. Chase bank updated its official app on Android to version 2.7. The new update ushers in a number of interesting features such as the ability to scroll through up to 24 months of transactions related to Chase deposit accounts.
Furthermore, Chase customers can take advantage of new functionality that allows users who are Liquid (code for ATM card service) customers to navigate through their accounts. Now folks can view account info, transfer money to an account, and use Chase QuickDeposit. Customers can also view in-app notices for things like upcoming service outages and app functionality. Other noteworthy enhancements include an increased character limit for Pay Bills’ and Chase QuickPay’s amount fields, followed by the usual improvements to performance (in other words, bug fixes).
To be honest, I don’t know why seeing your transaction history as far back as two years on your mobile phone such a big deal. Really, is it necessary?
Anyway, if you don’t have the app, make sure you head over to the Google Play link to grab the latest addition of Chase Mobile.
