    Foursquare for BlackBerry updated to version 1.5.5



    After doing some random surfing on my BlackBerry this morning I stumbled upon something. I was checking some apps to make sure I had the latest version loaded up and when I got to Foursquare I found version 1.5 on the download link. My previous version was 1.0.12. So this is a pretty significant build number jump. If you are a Foursquare user download the update and let us know what you have found that is new in this build. So far I have found the ability to add friends and add tips. Still doesn't seem to be a public touchscreen version available yet though. But this version still works fine on Storm devices.

    Can someone tell me why its ok for some jerk to charge $50 to access the Foursquare Storm version that is supposed to be in "private beta?" Why is it ok for him to charge $50 for a leak?? This isn't a program that he worked on or anything. Thats almost as bad as Foursquare charging $50 for the app themselves. I mean its not like we're talking the price of a Starbucks coffee here, thats $50. Do the Foursquare people even have a clue?

    The only thing different in this version is the tips button at the top. Thats a useless justification to go from 1.0.12 to 1.5. If you're going to release a major version bump, you may as well release a version that actually works on the Storm. Ugh, almost as dumb as the Socialscope people...

    I have never heard of someone charging $50 for the storm version. That's a bit crazy:Eyecrazy:

    TBZ advertised it on twitter for all his VIP people only, the people who paid $50 to access the special part of his site.

    I'm sorry, but unless you're providing a hot female to come to my house to give me a happy ending in addition to the site access, very much not worth it. He can do what he wants with Tweetissmo because thats his program, but a software leak that isn't his....come on. I kinda thought being a part of the Blackberry community was about helping each other out, not to turn a profit.

    Hmm.. My current version is 1.0.4 so 1.0.5 isn't really that big of a jump so for the tips to just change is kinda understandable.

    Edit: Just kidding spoke to soon just realized that the current version is 1.5.0 which is definitely a HUGE jump for only tips to change I am installing now..

    I have also noticed that I can now click on my friends badges and a description pops up and tells me how they received the badge. The app is much quicker now as well.

    I actually just deleted foursquare off my Storm. I have had it for about a month and haven't used it once. I guess I just don't see the purpose or the need for it
