Just in time for the arrival of the BlackBerry Q10, foursquare is in the process of rolling out a new update for BlackBerry 10 devices with one particularly long awaited change and a few other additions thrown in for good measure. We've got our hands on the full change log, so here's what you can expect to see different in v10.1.2:

New In this Release:
See the most interesting things around you, as soon as you open the app. When you open up the new Foursquare, we immediately show your nearby friends and the most interesting places around you. That’s because we’re constantly crunching our data to customize the recommendations you see, based on the time of day, how familiar you are with the neighborhood, and what’s popular at the moment. 
 
Also in this release:
  • Enhanced explore auto complete: Now includes popular places and common searches around you as well as categories.
  • Lightning fast checkin: Long press on a place while going to check in and be checked in right away
  • Context Actions on the Friends tab, long press to like or comment on a friend's check-in
  • Q10/10.1 Support
  • Fixed: Photos now upload in the correct orientation

Yup, no more sideways photos if you're a BlackBerry Z10 owner and if you're a BlackBerry Q10 owner, you'll never have to know what it was like. With that fixed and the other new additions, it all makes for a very nice foursquare update. Like always with app updates, it's still filtering through BlackBerry World so if you're not seeing it yet, just relax. It'll be along shortly or you can go ahead and check for updates to possibly help it along.

You didn't miss it. I just deleted it. In case you never noticed, you will rarely see an "evening' post with a FIRST on it, because I delete them. Plus, if you get super annoying and post it like 3 more times I after I delete them, I just ban your account (Comments, not forums, I'm not that mean) for 3 days for annoying me. Have a nice day, next time.. think about how bad you really want to be FIRST!! Yeah - that's how I roll. Go leafs go!! :D

Thanks Bla1ze. Can we make this a general CB rule for all articles? A lot of people say "oh lighten up it's just a bit of fun" etc but it's getting a little ridiculous these days and frankly annoys the proverbial out of me! Or maybe everyone gets one first. Once. After that it's an instaban.

Yes, it's true. I did a "First" accidently posting it twice and then saw it gone and tried it a third and then minutes later I was banned for 3 days :(

I was wondering about the sideways pictures on my Z and couldn't figure out how to fix that. Regardless, it seems I won't have that issue when I get my Que.
and Thank you Bla1ze.

Leafs suck, let's go Montreal! And foursquare is garbage and shouldn't be already installed on bb10 when you get it

Is this version only for 10.1? Not seeing the update on my Z10 with a lower version.

Please delete all first comments. At times there are so many posts dealing with 'first' that it's difficult to find the meaningful posts. CB10 looks a little second-rate when so much is dedicated to absolutely useless and pointless posts.

Got a upgrade notification for BlackBerry travel but not foursquare yet hmmmm....

Still not available in BlackBerry World. Too bad the article did not mention anything about the update being available only to some parts of this universe.

P.S. CB10 should have a Flag option for unrelated comments.
And Foursquare should have a landscape mode. Just like CB10.

Why is it telling me Unavailable for this device?
I'm in the UK, SIM free handset, on Vodafone.
I've got the original install but since then no updates.
Ideas? Anyone?

I should also add that Foursquare doesn't even show in BB World... It's like the app doesn't exist!!

STL100-2 on 10.0.10.90
The app isn't in BB World at all.
It's not even in my list of installed apps, even though it's running, and I use it.

I'm loathe to uninstall in case I can't reinstall it. But I think I might have no option.

OK. I deleted it.
Did a battery pull - and it's back!!

I've raised a call with Foursquare to see what they say...

Its back meaning it shows up in appworld again or that it just showed back up on your device after deleting it?

I just downloaded the update. Took a while before it's available in BlackBerry Storm though. And I needed to restart to have the App running again.

First Impressions. I like the previous layout better. The comment option is not readily shown unlike the like option.

If u guys need to first so bad go to hipsterrunoff lol they have non zero tolerance for 'firsties' there. Go Chelsea Go!

The enter key for a new line is not working in this update. But the notification that "You stole the Mayorship" is great. Too bad I wasn't able to capture my first steal using this update.
Btw, I needed to restart my Z10 to make it run again, twice today since I made the update.
