Following the release of iOS 5, foursquare has released an update to its iOS app and has added a new feature to the application. foursquare has introduced a  new feature for iPhones in its iOS application called ‘Foursquare Rader’. This feature notifies users if anything interesting is happening around them, even if their iPhones are in their pocket.

Here’s how this new feature works

For instance: maybe a group of your friends are hanging out nearby, or you’re around the corner from this amazing Mexican restaurant that’s been on your To-Do List forever. After you turn foursquare Radar on, your phone will let you know so you won’t miss out.

It is a nice feature to have if you are a regular foursquare user. In order to use the new foursquare Radar feature you will have to update your app to the latest version and turn this feature on from the app’s settings. foursquare Radar is an iOS 5 only feature for iPhones.

foursquare has also added some new features for iOS 4 users such as new sharing feature and an updated ‘Me’ tab.
