4th & Mayor is currently the favorite Foursquare application for Windows Phone. I can’t believe I haven’t made a video for this before. Version 3.2 just came out with two new major features: restaurant menu and QR check-in. These features are not yet in the iPhone app so Windows Phone users get an exclusive experience! Watch the demo here on the Nokia Lumia 800.
Here’s a demo of Foursquare for the Nokia N9. It’s pretty good! The main screen shows a navigation drop down, specials nearby, map, search, and list of places to check in. I like that this app gives you the options to broadcast to Twitter and/or Facebook. Video after the jump.
The Foursquare application 4squick for Symbian was updated earlier today to 0.715. The major changes include faster startup time, public/private check-in, share to Facebook or Twitter, leaderboard, user profiles, and bug fixes. I made a video to show the new features. Check it out!
Foursquare check-in is now integrated with the latest beta of Ovi Maps. You may need to match the place on Ovi Maps to the corresponding one on Foursquare. None of the places I’ve tried to check-in on Ovi Maps were listed on the Foursquare venues. The app is still in beta, so expect things to get better down the road. Watch my demo on the Nokia N8.
Social Media Week (February 7-11) is coming to a city near you and Nokia is the headline sponsor. Social Media Week brings hundreds of thousands of people together every year through learning experiences that aim to advance our understanding of social media’s role in society. There will be plenty of events to attend, nearly all of which are free.
Jennifer Altgen, Product Manager of Check-in for Ovi Maps, gives us a demo of Nokia’s location sharing solution on the Nokia N8. With Check-in, you can manually share where you are and what you are up to with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and many others such as RenRen and StudiVZ. Watch the video after the jump.
Vodafone UK is launching a Foursquare treasure hunt called the ‘Mobile Mayor challenge’ which will award 7 lucky winners with a new Nokia N8. The challenge will invite people to ‘check in’ to one of six Nokia N8s ahead of the official launch. The person who is the mayor of one of the Nokia N8’s at 6pm on Saturday 2 October will be crowned as Mobile Mayor and will take home an all new Nokia N8.
Nokia showed off their upcoming Foursquare app for Symbian phones at Nokia World 2010. Kee from Nokia got in front of our camera and used the Nokia N8 to give you a sneak peek. The app will be at the Ovi Store in a couple of weeks. It is compatible with Symbian^3 like the Nokia N8, Symbian^1 like the Nokia N97, and S60 3.2 like the Nokia E72.
If you’re addicted to Foursquare badges like me, you might like to know that you can easily get the Road Warrior badge simply by checking in three times through Foursquare in the Waze application. Waze is a social mobile app that provides free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road.
