Foursquare for Android Gets Photos, Comments & Widgets

On Monday, Foursquare released a completely overhauled version of its iPhone app with photos and comments. Today, those same features, along with two new home screen widgets, are being given to Android device owners.

The photos and comments features are meant to be an exact replica of those introduced earlier this week. Users can now upload photos during and after checkins, add photos to tips and venue pages, and leave comments on friends’ checkins.

The two new home screen widgets are exclusive to the Android version of the app. One allows faster checkins and the the other highlights the most recent activity from friends.

Co-founder and CEO Denis Crowley has been teasing the new release and recruiting beta testers all week via Twitter, a method that seems to be working out nicely. “Btw, crowdsourcing beta testing to Twitter (for Android release) is working out great. You['re] finding all sorts of weird edge cases = THANK YOU,” reads one of those tweets.

We’ve yet to toy around with the just-released Android version, but if the new features look and feel as slick as they do on iPhone, Foursquare users will not be disappointed. As for BlackBerry and webOS versions, those are slated for an early January 2011 release.
