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:
- 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.
