A few weeks back we checked out the beer lovers social network Untappd. Unfortunately until now, only those on newere devices with BlackBerry 6 could get in on the fun due to the design of the mobile site. Well today Untappd announced that they have made a BlackBerry OS 5 site that will work on older devices as well. So now anyone not running BlackBerry 6 can get in on the fun as well.
BlackBerry 5 user can now rejoice and raise a pint with their friends on Untappd! Today we are launching a BB5 optimized version of our mobile web site. This site has been tailored to operate smoothly on the BB5 browser and has been visually optimized for both 320px wide and 480px wide screens. We apologize to all of the BB5 users out there who have had to wait to join in. Our main mobile site uses several web technologies that aren't supported by the older browser software, but after some tweaking and re-tooling, we're all ready for you! To access the mobile site, simply head over to http://m.untappd.com and you will be sent to the BB5 compatible version!
In case you missed it, Untappd is essentially a Foursquare for beer drinkers. Check-in with whatever brew you're enjoying, add your location and you're done. You'll earn badges along the way and be able to toast your friends in the virtual pub. If you're at all a beer drinker it is definitely worth checking out. Totally free and totally fun. Hit the link below to sign up, then head to m.untappd.com on your device to check-in.
