If you’ve ever used the official foursquare app for Nokia Symbian^3 devices, you know it’s a little behind the times. And by a little, I mean more than a year behind the times. The only update it’s received since it launched last September was to make it compatible with version 2 of foursquare’s API. For a service that’s releasing updates as rapidly as foursquare it means there are a ton of features missing from the official app.
That’s why an intrepid group of developers have worked to build 4squick, a third-party replacement for the official app that brings in many of the features missing in the official app. We’ve covered the project before, but yesterday they announced that they’ve come out of beta. Version 1.0 is now available in the Ovi Store â€” and it’s on sale for the next few days.
Version 1.0 brings a number of updates to the app. According to 4squick’s blog post, they include:
- Commenting of check-ins
- Upload more photos to a check-in you did earlier
- Friend management
- List of badges
- List of mayorships
- Photo uploader shows all the photos and is a lot faster
- UI modifications and bug fixes
To thank their beta users and everyone who’s left a five star review for the app, they’re offering it for the lowest price possible (besides free) for the next week. In most places that’s the local equivalent of $.99 orÂ â‚¬1.
I don’t have a compatible phone to try it out, but everything I’ve heard about 4squick has been positive. At this price point, it’s worth a try for anyone with a Symbian^3 or MeeGo device. Anything has to be better than the official app, right?
Have you tried 4squick? What do you think?
