Open Source: Library For Easy Usage Of The FourSquare API In iOS Apps

I’ve mentioned libraries and tutorials for integrating iOS apps with the Facebook API (most recently this Facebook library with a very clean syntax using blocks), and recently received a question if I Knew of any libraries enabling easy use of the Foursquare API.

Recently a new library for easy integration with the iOS Foursquare library – you may have noticed if you went searching that there are other Foursquare libraries, but I didn’t see any that support their new API.

This new library does, allowing you to implement all the basic functionality of the Foursquare API (such as check ins, venue searching, and adding photos) and provides very clean authentication using Safari and a custom URL scheme so the user goes right back to your app, asynchronous requests all in a small lightweight package.

You can find the Github repository for the library here.

You’ll find full usage instructions on integrating the library with your projects on the Github page, and you’ll find examples for all basic functionality and use in the included demo project.

This should be of great help to anyone looking to integrate Foursquare within their apps.
