Foursquare’s transition from one app to two completely different services is a slow one. Like a child getting used to a cold pool one foot at a time, Foursquare is gradually rolling out each new app.
On Wednesday, the company unveiled a new logo and a new design for its flagship Foursquare app, revealing what it will look like once the check-in is ripped out and placed in Swarm, the location-based social app the company released in May. The new app isn’t live yet—it will be available in the next few weeks.
The new Foursquare will take on Yelp, but will be more than just a directory of businesses. The company will use your check-in data and location history to provide you with suggestions it thinks you will enjoy. And searching on Foursquare will display different results for different people.
“Once you teach Foursquare a couple of things about you—adding tastes, following experts, even walking around for a few days, the app will be 100% yours,” the company said in a blog post.
Starting Thursday, all your Foursquare check-ins, photos and friends will be moved to Swarm.
