Foursquare is now giving users access to several apps in one thanks to its new connected apps platform.  Released in June,  third-party apps now  function directly within Foursquare, giving users a simple and easy way to access information.  For example, when you check-in to a new city while travelling, the Weather Channel app appears giving you the local forecast.  Also, apps like Instagram and Men’s Health Eat This, Not That are prompted when checking-in to a restaurant, giving you tips on healthy eating options, as well as showing you pictures from other Foursquare enthusiasts who checked-in to the restaurant.
