Earlier today we let you know that Foursquare was updated to v5.5. What we didn't know at the time was what new features were included in this release. This all-new version, we have learned, now comes with something completely new and a first for BlackBerry users called Foursquare Explore. Explore allows users to find all the best places nearby without having to sign-up or sign-in. That's right, even those without accounts up can view recommendations for nearby places and top picks without being required to log in.

Foursquare Explore

  • Customers will now be able to search for all of the best places nearby with photos, tips, hours of operation, and menus -- features that were previously only available to Foursquare account holders.
  • With more than three billion check-ins and 30 million tips, Foursquare can put forth recommendations based on what's popular in the neighborhood, where the experts go, the time of day, and more.
  • Foursquare becomes even more powerful once a customer signs up for Foursquare and begins to check-in. Customers that have signed-in can enjoy a more customized experience based on what they like, where their friends have been, compete for mayorships and badges, as well as enjoy money-saving specials and discounts.
  • RIM has been working closely with Foursquare to provide customers with a quick and convenient way to start searching for places immediately.

Foursquare with Logged-Out Explore can be downloaded by any BlackBerry device running OS 5 or higher at the link below. Be sure to let us know what you think about this latest upgrade in the comments below.

Noone comments? Wow. :(


I think I would have to wait for the next update. Since this new version, I'm stuck at "Acquiring Location". I've reverted back to the previous one ( thanks to my full backup ) and so far so good.

Hope a fix will be found soon.
