Foursquare Checks Out of the Check-in Game, Reveals New Logo Published: July 23, 2014

Foursquare's attempt to transform itself from a check-in app into Yelp continues with a new app and a new logo, according to

Back in May, Foursquare announced that it was taking the check-in out of the main app and wrapping it into Swarm, a new distinct app. When Swarm was released, users who didn't download the app could continue to use Foursquare to check-in to their favorite locations.

Starting Thursday, that will no longer be the case. If you want to check-in, you'll need to install and use Swarm. The official Foursquare app will have check-ins removed and focus primarily on local discovery and recommendations.
