Foursquare has just begun pushing out a server-side update for its official Android application. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports the usual truckload of bug fixes and speed optimizations together with integration for Uber’s cab-hailing service.

From now on, when a user searches for a specific location using the Foursquare app, an Uber button will appear alongside the travel information for that destination. Clicking the Uber button will prompt an active menu, which allows users to select the vehicle type they would like to travel in.

To celebrate this launch, the two company’s have come together to hold a special promotion for new users. If you’ve never travelled using Uber before, simply use the promo code FOURSQUARE at checkout to receive a discount.
