What’s New?

Inspired by the possibility of making Foursquare available to as many people as possible, our BlackBerry team built a logged-out mobile version of explore during a recent hackday. Whit today’s update, BlackBerry becomes the first place where you can download Foursquare and start searching for places immediately, before you even signed up.

Looking for a new lunch spot? Search for “lunch specials,” “Thai,” or ” spring rolls.” We’ll find the best places nearby, and show you photos, tips, housrs, menus, and more,

Of course, Foursquare gets even more powerful once you start checking in. We can then customize Explore based on what you like and where you and your friends have been. Check in ten times, and we’ll come up with ten new places we know you’ll love.

Foursquare helps you explore the world around you. Meet up with friends. Find places to go. Save money with Specials.

While on the go, you can easily tell friends where you are, share pictures, get their comments (“I’m right around the corner, I’ll stop by to say hello”), and get insider tips and reviews (“order the Lobster Ravioli; it’s the best dish by far.”). Tons of places offer discounts and freebies to the foursquare community, and you earn points and badges for doing the things you love. If you want, you can easily post your proudest check-ins to Facebook or Twitter. It’s like the old playground game, four square, but way more fun.
