Foursquare is a social location-sharing application whereby users can check in to locations and earn points and badges for doing so. Foursquare users can add friends, see where they're checking in, comment on their check-ins, and earn mayorship status at frequent destinations. Some businesses even provide rewards to Foursquare users that check in at their location. Foursquare is BBM-connected so users can share their latest check-in as a status message. Though Foursquare is available as a BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 app, there’s no official PlayBook app.

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 bug fix update now available in BlackBerry World
The last Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 brought a ton of new changes but it also brought a few bugs with it and a new update rolling through BlackBerry World looks to correct those. It's just a small batch of fixes but if you've have issues with the 'mark prior read' or 'delete prior' options, you'll want to make sure you grab this one.
Fixes issue where Foursquare would open when doing mark read prior or delete prior from the Hub.
Fixes issue where you could not open Specials from the place page
Other bug fixes
The update should be live for most folks right now, if you're not seeing it you can try searching for Foursquare or refreshing BlackBerry World to help it along. If none of that works, just sit tight. It'll come along soon enough.

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 gets overhauled, brings a new look and bug fixes
Its been a while since the last update to Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 but it seems the developers have been rather busy. The latest release is now filtering through BlackBerry World and showing up on devices. It's a pretty big update as well as it not only brings a new, flatter look and feel to the app but also fixes a lot of previous bugs.

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 updated to v10.3.0.1342 - Faster, stronger, better!
With the last update to Foursquare arriving back in August, I suspected we'd soon be seeing another update and it has now arrived. This update concentrates on speed but there's several other changes within that make the version jump to 10.3.0.1342 pretty significant. Thankfully, we don't have to guess at what's been added and fixed as Foursquare has laid out a nice change log for us all.
New settings screen to make it easier to find and update the things you want
New Explore filters
Don't have a network connection? Still need an address? open Foursquare with no connection and we'll show you your last search results
All combined, that makes for a pretty sweet update and if you've not already grabbed, you can hit up BlackBerry World and get it downloaded right now. Be sure to leave some comments and let us know how it's working for you. Personally, it seems quite a bit faster to me but i never really thought it was a 'slow' app to begin with.

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 updated to v10.2.1 - New photo browser, improved place details and more!
It's time for another update to foursquare on BlackBerry 10. This time around, the app gets bumped into version 10.2.1.674 and includes a few new features aside from the typical bug fixes and performance enhancements that come with every updated release.
New and improved photo browser for viewing images in foursquare

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 updated to v10.1.4
A nice new foursquare for BlackBerry 10 update has started rolling out through BlackBerry World for all you check-in fanatics out there. This release sees foursquare for BlackBerry 10 get bumped into v10.1.4 and adds a fair amount of additions to the app overall.
If you're like me and often times use foursquare not to check-in but rather to pull up addresses, directions, store hours and more the updates to the Explore section alone make the update worthwhile. Foursquare thankfully, included a full change log with this release so here is everything that is new:

Foursquare for BlackBerry 10 updated to v10.1.2
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
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.

Get checking in to your favorite places with foursquare for BlackBerry 10
Foursquare for BlackBerry isn't in the slightest bit new - but it is new for BlackBerry 10! If you like to be social and share your location with friends then you will want to have Foursquare on your new shiny BlackBerry. It seems to have become common practice to 'check in' to locations such as restaurants and bars etc. I'm not totally sure why - I suppose most of us now do it because we can, rather than actually using the app to meet up with buddies and share good places.

New BlackBerry 10 UI images show off Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and more!
With an L-Series device in the hands of the folks over at Tinhte there has been plenty of hands-on time with BlackBerry 10 spread around. It's safe to say that what we're seeing is certainly not the shipping version of BlackBerry 10 but at the same time the most crucial parts are there and offer a good look at OS overall.
While we've seen the hardware images along with the hands-on video already, we're now being treated to some new images of the overall UI and some apps. Some of the stuff RIM has already showed off previously but you can tell its been updated since then and some of the stuff is entirely new.

Foursquare update brings new first for BlackBerry - Logged-Out Explore feature
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.
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.

foursquare for BlackBerry 10 demonstrated at BlackBerry Jam Americas
It's been action packed this afternoon at BlackBerry Jam and one of the demonstrations that took place a short while ago was the new BlackBerry 10 foursquare app. The app looks pretty traditional and offers the same great features however with the new OS comes some new ways of actually using the app and the wonderful 'Peek' feature is certainly included.
BBM integration will still be heavily imbedded into the app so fear not all you 'check in' addicts. The foursquare app for BlackBerry 10 is looking great and today we have only seen the basics. With several months still to go before we actually see BB10 devices going on sale I'm excited to see what else the foursquare team can cram into the already awesome app.

Automatically check-in to foursquare with LittleBrother for BlackBerry
If you're a big foursquare user you've no doubt had times where you have missed checking in somewhere simply because you forgot. "Wouldn't it be great if I could somehow check-in automatically?" you thought. Well LittleBrother for BlackBerry is here to save the day. With this handy app from Emacberry you can do just that. After a bit of setup, LittleBrother will automatically check you in to venues you have specified, as long as you're within 50m for at least 2 minutes. While it works really well for the most part, there are some kinks. If you're in a large city or your venues are close together (as I found at CES in Las Vegas) you'll have trouble differentiating venues, so you'll need to choose just a few so you don't overlap and end up checked-in at the wrong venue. At home however where the venues I frequent are fairly far apart, I've really had no issues thus far. For more on just how LittleBrother gets this done and to find out how to get up and running, check out the full changelog at emacberry.com.

Michelle's most-used BlackBerry apps of 2011
One of the bad things about being a procrastinator and putting off doing this post: some of my most used apps have already been covered. I'm going to need you guys to all pretend you didn't already read Adam, Bla1ze, Ryan, or Joseph's lists and it will all seem new. Lots of people complain that BlackBerry just doesn't have any apps, and while we are missing some that would be nice to have, I think there are plenty out there to make use of.

Aside from the fancy new icon, not much new in this version -- a few tweaks from the looks of it, including a smoothed out options screen as well as the addition of notifications (clicking on the foursquare logo in the menu bar).

In a bit of a messy alpha/beta game a few days back, foursquare released an alpha version of their app that included BBM integration. Soon after an official update was released that didn't have BBM integration. Well now the app has been updated again and does have BBM integration.

A few days ago we saw the latest foursquare alpha hit some devices and it included the much anticipated BBM integration.
