Foursquare is excited to share that Places API has been named the 2024 Best Innovation in Mobile & Device Development by the DEVIES!

The DEVIES awards recognize outstanding design, engineering and innovation in developer and engineering technology. Foursquare Places API’s unique competitive features, including real-time access into our global data sets and the ability to search through places by 1,400+ categories and 60+ data attributes, contributed to this honor.
