Foursquare today announced it has partnered with GrubHub Seamless to offer its mobile users access to more than 20,000 restaurants in hundreds of cities across the US. In the Foursquare app for Android or iOS, all you have to do is tap the GrubHub or Seamless icon and place your order (search for “delivery” to get a list of restaurants that will come to you).
In related news, Foursquare today also updated its maps. Thanks to Mapbox, Foursquare.com is now better at highlighting neighborhoods and important landmarks. It also features improved typography, a new color scheme, as well as patterns for water and parks.
