Foursquare Adds Yelp-Like Filters to Website

foursquare adds local search filters to website Foursquare is adding more functionality to its local search features by allowing users to limit their searches to businesses within a certain price range or to those that are open at the time.

Users can also search for venues offering specials for those who check in on Foursquare. Those businesses appear at the top of an unfiltered search as well, pushing users to continue to take advantage of the check-in feature that provides the data for the rest of Foursquare’s local search features.

Users who log in can additionally sort businesses by those they have and have not been to before.

The filters will eventually roll out to mobile apps as well, Foursquare said.
