N4BB

Looks like the popular Foursquare app for Blackberry has been updated, and some have already gotten their hands on it.  Technically the app is still in beta, but they’re not wasting any time upgrading and updating the application.  This update is from 1.7 to 1.8, and features an slightly updated UI, and faster location pinpointing, amount others.  (Storm users get significant upgrades)  The app update should go live for all users tomorrow, according to their latest tweet.  I like Foursquare and the app works great for me, 1.8.0 does seem faster, and lets you oversee your account more from just the app.
