The update adds a new feature that’s currently exclusive to the Android app: tip reporting. A new button on the tip detail screen lets you report tips to foursquare that are spam, offensive or no longer relevant. Users have been asking for this ability for a long time, since reporting them via Twitter to @4sqSupport is laborious and time-consuming. Hopefully this feature will make its way to the other apps and website in the near future.
In this version, points are back on the post check-in screen after disappearing a few versions ago. The mini-leaderboard showing your position relative to your nearest friends (in terms of points) is also back.
The change log lists improvements to the photo sorting on venue pages, but (as far as I can tell) this has actually been occurring across all the foursquare apps for the past few weeks. A new algorithm is in place that shows more relevant photos first instead of defaulting to friends’ photos above the most recent photos. It also strives to eliminate duplicate images.
Other changes include a quick save option in the activity feed and bolded friend mentions in check-ins. The update is available for free in the Google Play store.
