The announcement for Foursquare is actually from Jan 30th, but the facts are still important. When you finally manage to get a hold of a BlackBerry 10 device, it will already have Foursquare preloaded. All the required social networks are on BlackBerry 10, which is required for Foursquare. The app will be integrated and will probably run a lot smoother than the original BlackBerry app.
hit the break for the official announcement!
BB10 was announced today, and we’re excited that our BlackBerry team has already built Foursquare to work perfectly on the new phones.
Once you pick up your shiny new BB10 phones, you can start using Foursquare right away – we’re thrilled that it will already be pre-loaded on BB10 devices globally, complete with BlackBerry Messenger and BlackBerry Hub integration. Open up Foursquare to discover great spots nearby, search for what you’re craving, and see what your friends are up to. You can even start using Foursquare Explore to find places without signing up, although your recommendations will become personalized once you add friends and start checking in.
If you’re already using Foursquare on your current BlackBerry, you can keep using Foursquare as always! Stay tuned for more awesome updates about the new BB10 version of the app coming soon.
It’s great that they are so gung ho for the BlackBerry 10 app. It is a big popular app, and they obviously have faith in the new OS.
