London Gets Foursquare, Paris Waitlisted: Take That, France!

According to late-breaking news we saw on The Next Web, Foursquare is coming to London by the end of this week.

Other European rollouts, including a Paris debut, are expected soon. We also saw on the Foursquare Twitter account that the service is expanding to college town Chapel Hill, NC. Currently, the popular location-based app is doling out Shameless Drunkard and similar badges in Amsterdam and a collection of large U.S. markets.

Right now, Foursquare-enabled U.S. cities include Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

Interestingly, although we don’t see this city on the list, we’ve also noticed quiteafew Boulder, CO Foursquare updates and oustings, mostly during and in the aftermath of Andrew Hyde’s Boco music/food/geekfest. These spots seem to be showing up on the site as part of Denver.

The news of international expansion thrusts this startup into a playing field with the now Nokia-owned Dopplr and Gowalla, both of which are already globally available.

Curious persons in as-yet-Foursquare-free areas should follow Foursquare’s Twitter account for cryptic responses and late-night updates on where the app and its bar-hopping advocacy will land next. The company is also seeking mobile beta testers for several devices; interested parties can apply here.
