12/17/2012.4: FourSquare and Apple Maps

December 17, 2012

The Verge is reporting that Apple and FourSquare are working to integrate FourSquare’s POI data in Apple Maps.

I can’t find my tweet, but I did say immediately after Apple Maps was released with iOS 6 that I had wished Apple partnered with FourSquare instead of, or at least in addition to, Yelp. In my experience FourSquare has a better database than Yelp, and a much much better community. FourSquare would make a much better partner for Apple Maps and I hope that if this rumor is real, it happens as soon as possible.

Vindication is (would be) nice.
