Foursquare, now with photographs

Foursquare announced today that they have now added the function of adding photos and comments in time for Christmas.

You’ve been requesting these features for months, and there are some cool aspects that you’ll notice right away:

  • Comments make meeting up and exploring so much easier. Improve your day by telling a friend that you’re around the corner and they should swing by. And getting a last-minute comment reminding you to order the best dish saves your meal. (You can even comment on the website and from check-in links posted to Facebook and Twitter!)
  • Tips with photos changes everything. See dishes before ordering them, figure out if a venue looks fun, or easily identify a hard-to-find spot. More info = better exploration.
  • The past comes to life. You can visit your history page on to see all the places you’ve been, with photos and comments preserved. Remembering is more fun than ever.

If you have push notifications enabled on your phone, you can see when friends leave a tip or when they’re nearby.   iPhone and Android users will be first to receive these features with Blackberry users getting their updates in January 2011.
