Foursquare for BlackBerry Version 1.9 Now Available

Comments

Foursquare for BlackBerry version 1.9.0 is now available and there are some pretty cool new features. One particularly great feature is the photo upload option. Now you can change/upload a profile photo via your BlackBerry. While it’s cool to upload a new profile picture, it would be ideal to see this service extended to venues. Foursquare is a great discovery tool for new restaurants and photo uploading will allow users to take pictures of menu items for others to see. Also, if a nightclub is a lot of fun, it would be cool to see a photo stream from people who are there.

Foursquare 1.9.0 also features:

  • Sort Check-ins – Quickly sort your nearby check-ins by time (most recent check-in) or by distance (closest check-in).
  • See Specials Nearby – Now you can see what venues feature specials when searching for what’s nearby.
  • BlackBerry Maps Integration – From a venue details page, click on the Google map tile and automatically get launched into BlackBerry maps.
  • Improved Battery Life – foursquare is always focused on battery performance and has made a few improvement. Expect even more improvements in the future.
  • Improved Location Support – Additional improvements have been made to location, allowing for better location support when checking in.
  • Small Tweaks & Fixes – foursquare is always listening to user feedback and making small fixes & tweaks along the way.
