Foursquare home screen heading to INQ phones

New tie-up sees deep Foursquare integration on Facebook-centric phones

Easy access recommendations delivered straight to INQ phones' home screens.

Foursquare and INQ have inked a deal which will see the latter’s Android phones get a dedicated home screen for the location aware social service. Owners of phones including the INQ Cloud Touch will be able to swipe their blowers and get realtime Foursquare info on-the-go.

Based on previous check-ins, current location and check-ins by your pals, the Foursquare home screen will deliver live recommendations on where to eat, where to hang out and where to shop.

If you’re not a member of Foursquare, fear not. INQ says it’s got that one covered. CEO Frank Meehan said, “We’re looking to make it really easy for a consumer to discover and sign up to foursquare itself, via the start-up sequence. Then we’re taking foursquare’s great knowledge of the world around you and visualising that on your home screen, enabling you to explore events, restaurants, clubs and even bookmark places in a to-do list.”

This is a really smart move by INQ, once again showing why its phones are the way to for social media savvy punters. Tell us what you think of the deal on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
