Foursquare is giving users a new reason to never leave its app: delivery service. The popular social check-in app teamed up with GrubHub Seamless, the recently merged online food delivery company, to let Foursquare users place a delivery order directly from the app.
Simply search the app for the grub you’re in the mood for and then scroll down through the restaurant’s listing to look for that red Seamless icon or the GrubHub icon. Not every restaurant has a partnership with the delivery service, of course, so Foursquare recommends searching for both “delivery” and a type of food.
Foursquare explained further in a blog post:
You’ll be happy to know that you can now find more than 20,000 GrubHub Seamless restaurants in hundreds of cities across the US without leaving the Foursquare app.
Simply click on the GrubHub or Seamless icon and start placing your order. You don’t even need to put on pants (but that would be nice)!
The integration makes perfect sense for an app that is all about finding the best local eats and other venues.
The update rolled out to iOS and Android Thursday.
