Foursquare for BlackBerry Gets Updated: Lots of Tweaks but No BBM Integration Yet

Comments

Above is Foursquare with BBM. Not yet but hopefully soon.

When we saw Foursquare back at BBWC, we saw the app with BBM integration and it looked pretty sweet. Apparently, it only took a couple days for them to implement since one of the developers already had experience with the BBM platform. We’re looking forward to when that version of the app gets released and in the meantime there’s an Alpha update with lots of small tweaks and the addition of Specials 2.0.

We’re not exactly sure what Specials 2.0 is, but it’s probably something like what Foursquare implemented with version 3.0 of the Android app. This version of specials gives more options to vendors, and opens the doors to new deals such as Flash Specials. Flash Specials are the typical door buster deals – to the first people who arrive after a certain time. More about the new specials at the Foursquare blog.

In this latest version of Foursquare for BlacKBerry, you’ll find:

  • Improved friend management
  • Changes to location support, let us know if this improves your location lookup.
  • Addition of specials 2.0.
  • Automated checking of app permissions.
  • And LOTS of small tweaks

How are you feeling about Foursquare these days? Experiencing checkin fatigue?
