foursquare, BBM Now Integrated

When foursquare released foursquare 3.0 for BlackBerry in July, the location-based mobile app closed out the announcement on its blog by lamenting the lack of integration with BlackBerry Messenger. There is no longer a need to lament.

The BlackBerry app is now integrated with BBM, and according to an update on the foursquare Blog, users can now:

  • Quickly share information about your favorite gallery or restaurant with any BBM friend, even if they don’t have foursquare installed.
  • Share your check-in photos via BBM chat with all your BlackBerry friends.
  • Easily invite your foursquare friends to BBM, so the conversation is all happening in one place.
  • Broadcast your badges in your BBM profile, reppin’ your foursquare swag to friends (respect!).
