RIM Demonstrates Foursquare BBM Social Platform Integration


This video demonstration shows an ideal use case for apps integrating into BlackBerry Messenger.

The integration of the BBM in BlackBerry apps is really compelling and what better way to show it off than in this slick Foursquare implementation. Since the release of the SDK this April developers have been working towards adding these features into their apps so that they can enjoy the benefits of contextual sharing, messaging, access to contacts, location and in-app chat.

I look forward to seeing more such integrations roll out over the summer. Everyone I spoke with at BlackBerry World this year agreed that the BBM SDK is an clear winner. How often does the features and benefits of a killer app get shared with an entire app platform?
