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.
