Sometimes more often than not we avoid posting every little update that comes out. While we’d love to have time for them all some just aren’t that huge a deal. That is.. until I downloaded the new Foursquare for BlackBerry. Now here’s a team that really knows how to re-invent itself making the latest versions of their popular social app feel fresh again! Lots of color, sharp edges, and content to explore as always.
4sq has continued to reinvent current features, add new features and feed the crowd more of what we love about the community. Functionality has always been spot on. Even when I was running the original beta releases that Peter Nofelt would send out, I always felt the product was something unique. Rarely did it fail to connect to GPS. Now years later and Foursquare is a household name.
It didn’t take long for Facebook to get in there and attempt to steal what 4sq started with their lackluster ‘Facebook Places’. But really who uses places besides people who took an extra year to go from MySpace to Facebook. And these are the same users that still haven’t gotten the hang of Twitter. Millions of users love their Foursquare and still we can see that Foursquare loves the user-base right back.
I’ve never seen users on Twitter begging Foursquare for an update or invite. They don’t play games with us. It’s understood that they want everyone to share the same incredible experiences. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of the people that work at 4sq.
Enough banter. If you haven’t already please go update your Foursquare for BlackBerry at the link below. Also be sure to check out the Foursquare Blog post here.
