Symbian Foursquare

With a new Foursquare app available for S60 5th Edition, is it time for an easy route into the location-based game? Ewan has a look in this full Symbian Foursquare review, concluding that, while a great start, a lack of search and discovery functions really hurts the app in real world use.

Read on in the full article.

Wait, this app is in beta right? Or at least, it was..

PS. I'm fairly sure ThinkChange have based the app on Foursquare, not Twitter

I guess, it's *something*, but, meh.

Seriously, maybe Nokia should consider outright payola to bring over developers, not unlike Microsoft with WP7 who are literally handing out big checks to spur application porting.

It is now out of beta apparently. Presumably no major fault were found during the testing period.

just dl'ed and tried it out. Was pretty buggy and didn't really add anything useful over what gravity offers.

Maybe I'll try it again when a newer much more improved version comes out.

If they had have added kinetic scrolling like I asked I think the ui would be slightly better than gravity
