A few days ago we saw the latest foursquare alpha hit some devices and it included the much anticipated BBM integration. While some were lucky enough to grab it early and run the app without a hitch, other users reported problems and couldn't get things working. Today foursquare for BlackBerry 3.0 is officially avaiable, however it lacks the BBM integration we were hoping for. Features of version 3.0 include:
- An overhauled UI, from the check-in screen down to your friends list.
- Explore! Get personalized recommendations on places to go, from your past check-ins, your friends', and the whole foursquare community. Search for what you want (like a lobster roll) or just tap an activity (like ‘drinks' or ‘food'). And, for those of you who like deals, tap the ‘Specials' button to find Specials nearby that are perfect for you.
- Speaking of Specials, this update allows you to grab daily deals around you from our five partners - LivingSocial, Gilt City, BuyWithMe, YP.com, and zozi. Seamless savings without leaving foursquare.
- The full leaderboard. See how you're doing compared to your friends.
The foursquare team notes that BBM integration is high on the list and should be available soon however. You can grab foursquare 3.0 free OTA from the link below.
