INQ is known for bringing social applications to life on mobile by deeply integrating app functionality throughout the phone and delivering live streams to the home screen, making it easy to stay in touch with what friends and family are up to.
The new integration uses the foursquare API to recommend nearby places to eat, drink and shop based on your location and past check-ins, along with check-ins from your friends and other members of the foursquare community.
Dennis Crowley, foursquare CEO, said: "This is an awesome demonstration of the power of foursquare. We're psyched that INQ has chosen foursquare to power the location layer on the INQ Cloud Touch."
Frank Meehan, INQ's CEO, said: "The foursquare experience on INQ is all about engaging a customer to really explore and discover interesting places. First, we're looking to make it really easy for a consumer to discover and sign up to foursquare itself, via the start-up sequence. Then we're taking foursquare's great knowledge of the world around you and visualizing that on your home screen, enabling you to explore events, restaurants, clubs, etc. and even bookmark places in a to-do list."
