Foursquare Extension Tells Bar-Hoppers Where To Go Next

New app makes it easier to have a big night out with tailored recommendations based on friend's check-ins.

In the adapt-or-die technology industry, the social-networking giant is trying to augment their location-based services to provide more.

Rager, the newest in a line of Foursquare Connected Apps that are designed to get you even more out of your check-ins and Foursquare experience, does just that. The app’s maker, The Barbarian Group (TBG), created the platform to be used in connection with the geo-location software, enabling you to plan your next move when you’re out for a night on the town.

Using information based on check-ins and Foursquare activity from your friends, as well as suggestions from TBG, the Rager app can recommend the next bar to hit or your next move to keep your night going.

 

In addition to suggesting a place to go for drinks, the app can also help you find the nearest place to load up on pizza or even a car ride home (with the car service Uber).

 

 

With the Rager app, TBG appears to be trying to connect even further with the ‘work hard, play hard’ young professionals that rely on social drinking and a night out to unwind. Overall the Rager experience is set up to help develop a unique plan based on your friends’ activity and provide greater connectedness to the savvy partygoer.

You can connect the app to your Foursquare account at justonemore.me.
