BlackBerry users can now get in on some features introduced in Foursquare for the iPhone back in August. Now instead of just checking into a place, you can check into events, which usually means movies, but also concerts and sports matches. I tend to use GetGlue when it comes to entertainment check-ins, but I’ll be willing to give Foursquare a shot. On top of events, Foursquare 3.4.1 adds some extra BlackBerry Messenger integration, so you can share tips on your BBM profile in addition to your favourite badges.
Speaking of which, the badge system has recently got a bit of an overhaul, so certain ones can actually level up if you accomplish them repeatedly. For example, for every five new malls you visit, you get an extra “X 1” on your Mall Rat badge. Neat idea. Besides that, Foursquare for BlackBerry has had a series of general layout tweaks, including more information on the check-in detail screen, and in-line commenting.
Head on over to BlackBerry App World to download the updated Foursquare app.
