Foursquare announced that version 2 of the foursquare API is now ready for you to play with.

You'll find APIv2 better in lots of subtle ways:

  • OAuth2 is much easier to use, more secure for users, and can even be used entirely from client-side Javascript.
  • By dropping XML support, we've been able to make the server more responsive (but not 1000x faster; sorry).
  • There's extensive documentation that includes sample applications and an API explorer.
  • A lot of work was put into consistency and clarity.
  • And last but not least, we've added oft-requested new endpoints for fetching user's badges, user's venue histories, and venue popularity.

You can learn more at our new developer homepage, developer.foursquare.com. Be sure to send any feedback or questions along to our developer mailing list.
