It’s BlackBerry’s Turn for New foursquare App

foursquare continues to roll out updates on all platforms, following up its addition of notifications to its Android app earlier this month and its new iPhone version, released in June, which gave the check-in button a more prominent position, with Tuesday’s introduction of foursquare 3.0 for BlackBerry.

The new BlackBerry app features a revamped user interface, the addition of the explore feature, integration of foursquare’s recent daily deals partners, and the leaderboard, and foursquare said integration of BBM will be added soon.

More from a post on the foursquare Blog:

Right away, you’ll notice that everything has been improved. The look is cleaner. There are a ton more features. Here’s a quick walkthrough of what you’ll see:

An overhauled UI, from the check-in screen down to your friends list.

Explore! Get personalized recommendations on places to go, from your past check-ins, your friends, and the whole foursquare community. Search for what you want (like a lobster roll), or just tap an activity (like drinks or food). And for those of you who like deals, tap the Specials button to find specials nearby that are perfect for you.

Speaking of specials, this update allows you to grab daily deals around you from our five partners — LivingSocial, Gilt City, BuyWithMe, YP.com, and zozi — seamless savings without leaving foursquare.

P.S. There’s one feature that we’re putting the finishing touches on and will have out soon: BBM integration. We just really wanted to get all the rest of this in your hands ASAP. Hope you enjoy it!
