6. Foursquare

Foursquare has been one of the mainstays of urban discovery apps for the last few years (think of it as a more tailored, more beautiful Yelp), but we’re still loving the user-generated lists and mapping tools they have. Updates to the app have made it even more user friendly and push notifications come from people you follow (like us, hopefully!), to let you know of cool stuff around you. Our 30+ lists including things like our Abandoned New York City list and NYC Hidden Bars and Restaurants list have been viewed nearly 50,000 times by viewers. And with our new partnership with Foursquare, you’ll be seeing more and more content appear regularly.
