Foursquare announced a new feature addition for BlackBerry users with their v3.3 launch. The main new feature is the addition of a notification tray which keeps track of quite a few notifications for you. It notifies you of things like friends joining Foursquare or if you share a place on your To-Do list with a friend. Here are the things Foursquare says you will find in the new notification tray:
- a friend comments on one of your check-ins;
- there are new comments or photos on a check-in you’ve commented on;
- your friend does one of the Tips you’ve left;
- you and a friend both have the same place on your To-Do List;
- there’s a special deal at a place on your To-Do List;
- a place you’re at starts swarming;
- one of your Facebook friends joins foursquare (worlds colliding!); and,
- you’re ousted as Mayor (boo!).
The new v3.3 also includes some improvements including:
- You’ll find better setting and account management, so you’ll be able to manage your privacy settings, password, and 3rd party apps – (this one’s for BlackBerry OS 5 and up).
- We’ve made tons of improvements to GPS and location support.
- Lots of other small tweaks and fixes!
