If you own a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and are active on Foursquare, you’ll definitely want to check out the FourPlay application by BerryCodes. The FourPlay app has been available for a while now but the initial release was a bit choppy and not as visually appealing as many hoped it would be. That isn’t the case anymore since FourPlay added Justin Peacock (@MrDink) to their team and have completely refreshed the user interface. Not only does the app look a lot better now, it also includes a bunch of needed features and changes.
- Home Screen
- Full Screen photo viewing of photos from your friends check ins
- Badges popup now more streamlined (hide popup by clicking the badges button again)
- Time stamp added to each check in so you know how long ago that checkin was
- New menu options, from left to right: Checkin, Venues, Explore, Specials, “Me” (leaderboard/profile)
- Venue Screen
- The venue screen has been redesigned to give you a much better look at the venue information
