    Foursquare for BlackBerry has been updated to v1.9.97. With the update comes new features because of a recent partnership with American Express. Now the partnership is going national. Across the whole country, at select merchants, you can now check-in with foursquare, pay with your American Express card, and get big savings on your monthly statement.

    It’s simple to use:

    • link your AmEx and foursquare accounts (you can do it here);
    • check in at a participating store and tap ‘load to card’ on the Special; and,
    • pay with your AmEx card.

    There’s no cutting out coupons or showing your phone to the cashier. The savings are automatically credited to your account within a few days.

    The Google Mobile Search app has been updated to v3.9.8. No presence of a change log, but it's always good to get updated to the latest version. Could just be the routine bug fixes. Download and let us know if you notice anything different.

    The popular Twitter app UberSocial (once known as UberTwitter) has been updated with a wealth of changes today! Version 1.20 includes the following changes:
    • The Inner Circle - Users have asked us how best to manage their busy timelines and we believe this feature will greatly assist in this. The Inner Circle allows you to elevate the most important users you follow to an exclusive timeline. You can set separate notifications on tweets/replies/DMs from anyone in the Inner Circle as well as separate icon notifications.
    • DealBox - This new feature will allow you to get offers on the best deals near you and customized for you. A small, passive notification will appear in the top right of the title bar to let you know if there are any new deals available. For users that have subscriptions, we have turned this feature off by default, but you can turn it on if you choose in the options screen.
    • Support for Twitter's new authentication mechanism for third-party clients - When you first install UberSocial you will be asked to go through the login process again, this is required in order to maintain compliance with Twitter's access mechanism.
    • Support for photos sent with Twitter's new photo service
    • Enhanced image viewing - For users on BlackBerry OS 5 and 6 you will now use the built-in image viewer to zoom and pan avatars and images. You can also now email these images from both places.
    • Unfollowing UberSocial from within the UberSocial application will now turn off auto-following of UberSocial if it was still on
    • A long click on a tweet on BlackBerry OS 6 devices will now bring up the menu
    • High quality photographs - You can now send original and higher quality images when sending a picture to Lockerz - you have the choice of small, medium and original, note that medium and original sizes will take longer to upload, but will be of higher/highest quality.
    • Fixed a bug with older BlackBerry OS 4.7 devices that had trouble loading UberSocial
    • Changed the name of the client attribution to 'UberSocial for BlackBerry'
    • Removed all umlauts over the U's in UberSocial
    • Reverse geo-location will now use BlackBerry's service and if that isn't available Twitter's reverse geo service
    • Fixed bug where users avatars which had transparency would not be maintained when added to the UberBar
    • Fixed bug where you sometimes could not select a location for trending topics
    • Fixed bug where a users avatar which is in the Uber Bar would not be loaded
    • Fixed the Facebook login bug - note that if you have set your facebook device to require the naming of each device that logs in, this is still an issue.

    One of the new features coming up in OS 7 on the new Bold 9900 smartphone is a built-in compass (magnetometer) designed to support location-based services and augmented reality. With BlackBerry 7, new APIs will allow you to take advantage of this new functionality within your applications.

    At the BlackBerry World conference, featured was a new application created by Mobilizy: Wikitude. The above Wikitude demo video showcases the power of BlackBerry 7 and the exciting opportunity augmented reality can bring to your apps. What do you think about augmented reality?

    DropBox for BlackBerry has been updated to v1.0.39.34. No specific change log to go with the update, just says that there has been some bug fixes. So if you were having some issues, or even if you weren't, it's always good to get updated.

    With the recent Bold Touch OS leak, it was discovered that a few native IM apps were also updated. These apps include GTalk, Yahoo! & Windows Live Messenger. As these IM app updates were extracted from a OS 6 leak, they will NOT work with OS 5 devices!

    Seesmic, a some-what popular social networking app, has issued the following statement:

    Blackberry users, we have important news we would like to share:

    Effective June 30th, Seesmic will discontinue support for Blackberry in order to focus development efforts on our most popular mobile platforms: Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7.

    We encourage those effected by this change to try out Seesmic for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7, as well as and Web.

    Sincerely,

    Team Seesmic
    For those of you unfamiliar with Seesmic, it is an app that attempts to merge multiple Facebook and Twitter accounts for its users. The Seesmic for BlackBerry app though fell incredibly short of that. The app hardly ever got updates, was overall very buggy and it just seemed like it was designed in a overall lazy fashion. Most BlackBerry users have never even heard of Seesmic so this news comes as no surprise. The slap in the face for all BlackBerry users that read this is the fact that the Seesmic Team is actually suggesting that the Windows Phone 7 is a more popular platform than ours. Really though?

    Either way, the current Seesmic for BlackBerry will continue to function until Twitter or Facebook make some major change like their log-in authentication; etc.

    When new apps or software leaks it's always an exciting time. Maybe it's because of the possibility of new features or the risk of messing up your device. Either way, this latest version has apparently been extracted from the 9850/9860 simulator.

    With it though comes certain software restrictions on who can download it:
    • BlackBerry OS 6.0.0.570 or higher
    • A BlackBerry ID

    • Download BBM 6.0.0.88 here.
    • If you downloaded it by accident and it messed up your BlackBerry try restarting it in Safe Mode.
    • Share what's new in this build with us in the forums
    • Note: This version of BBM might not work for all that try it. Some people are reporting the BBM icon disappears and fails to ever appear.


    Disclaimer: This software is leaked, unofficial and not supported by RIM. By downloading it you willingly run the risk of messing up your BlackBerry device and losing data. BlackBerryOS.com does not take a responsibility for any damage that may result from downloading any unofficial/leaked software. Enjoy!

    This is by far the coolest little app I have seen in some time. BlackBerry takes the cake on this one. Something as small as an Avatar app has made a huge splash in the BBM Community. Its the little things that count, huh?

    BBM Avatar comes in two different forms, you can download the male or female editor. The editors are small but have a bunch of options for customizing your very own avatar. In fact, the two avatars above are both BBOS staff members... I am on the Left and AgentBlackBerry is on the right. Who do you think has the better avatar?

    Download the BlackBerry Avatar Builder, Build your avatar and show us your completed project.

    Oh how I love it when developers finally choose to bring their apps to BlackBerry. Path becomes the latest company to decide to make their way onto the BlackBerry platform starting with a beta program.

    While I personally haven't used Path in its other available platform, based on what I saw in the video, it looks pretty awesome. Path aims to keep track and share specific events/days by means of a simple picture and caption with a max of 50 friends. This definitely makes you think of who you'd like to add to the mix instead of just adding everyone you could think of. It's definitely a really cool idea that I could see catching on especially on our platform that lacks an app like this.
