Foursquare For BlackBerry Gets “Explore” ImprovementsBy: Chris Crum - February 20, 2012
Foursquare announced an update with some new features for its BlackBerry app today. The improvements mainly come to the “Explore” feature.
“Every time you find a place with Explore, we find the right recommendations for you, based on where you’ve been, lists you follow, time of day, and the 1,500,000,000 check-ins from the foursquare community,” the company explains in a blog post. “With this new version, we share more of the logic with you. You’ll also see pricing information, photos, tips, and friends who have been there right in the results.”
“With the new Explore filters, you can find whatever type of adventure you’re craving, whether it’s places you’ve never been or places your friends love,” the company adds. “Need a recommendation near home and not work? Now you can get recommendations for anywhere in the world.”
It also comes with menus from over 250,000 U.S. restaurants, as part of Foursquare’s partnership with SinglePlatform announced last month.
The app can be found in BlackBerry App World here.
Last month, Foursquare actually made the Explore feature available for the web version (not just mobile).
