Foursquare adds delivery.com integration for ordering food and booze

One more app telling you not to bother leaving the house

Local discovery app Foursquare is teaming up with delivery.com to make it easier to order food, alcohol, and groceries. If users are in one of delivery.com's 36 serviced cities in the US, they can just open up the Foursquare app, look for where the delivery site's icon appears next to stores and restaurants, and tap to make an order. Although information on what's being sold and for how much can be viewed directly within the Foursquare app, users will have to switch to delivery.com's own app (and install it) before they can actually buy anything.

Foursquare has previously integrated delivery services including GrubHub, Seamless, and DeliveryHero (in the UK), and is teaming up with delivery.com via Button — a startup that links apps' services. However, it faces a lot of competition from a slew of other companies including Postmates, DoorDash, Yelp (which first partnered with Eat24 and delivery.com back in 2013), and Uber (which is slowly building up its own UberEats app). Basically, some time ago the tech world figured out that people quite like to sit in their homes and do nothing while food is bought to them, and, well, we've not looked back since.
