Mobile check-in service Foursquare has added two new features to its iPhone app: photos and comments. The company says these are two of the most frequently requested features, and here’s how they’ll work: When you check-in to a location, your friends can comment, letting you know they’re nearby, the burgers suck at the place where you’re getting lunch, or whatever. You can also take a photo when you check in, allowing you to show the meal you’re eating, the decor of the restaurant, or other relevant (or irrelevant) info.

While check-in photos you upload are only visible to your friends, you can leave tip and venue photos which are available to the larger Foursquare community. Foursquare can send you push notifications (if enabled) when your friends comment.

You can download the latest version of Foursquare for iOS from the app store. An updated version for Android with support for photos and comments is due out later this week, while BlackBerry users should get the same features next month.
