Our Foursquare Developer community has hacked together a few sample applications to help you get a sense for how to use the Foursquare API. Feel free to check out and use the source code for inspiration—and follow our Foursquare Developers Blog for more!

Also if you’ve built one yourself that you’d like to add to this list, feel free to submit it here.


Pilgrim Toolkit

Foursquare has built the most comprehensive location awareness engine to engage users with contextually-relevant, geo-aware content. Our Pilgrim technology was initially developed for our own consumer applications, and is now available to developers to embed in your own apps. The Pilgrim Toolkit app will provide developers with an opportunity to see our technology working first hand.

NOTE: This app is for app developers who are looking into implementing Foursquare’s Pilgrim technology and have gotten a developer account set up with Foursquare.
