    Well, the new Foursquare update royally messes up my Opera Mini, so I'm searching for an alternative to Foursquare with Facebook/Twitter integration. I've tried Loopt, but keep getting a Network Error message... does Loopt require BIS to run? It's not native RIM, so I was hoping not, but I get this every time, even with device resets and uninstalling/reinstalling.

    What apps would you suggest?

    SocialScope, but it's invite/private beta.

    Gowalla is an alternative to FourSquare

    I uploaded foursquare 1.9.55 last night, and not only does it not work, it freezes my Curve up and I have to reboot it. I've never had a problem with earlier versions. Is there a new one, or is there a way to get the old one back?

    Hi,
    Don't ask me because I don't know why, but I was thinking of getting into the FourSquare thing recently, but have not taken the plunge yet. I am seeing people having problems, and just wanted to ask what they are specifically, and if they would prevent you from using it (if it did work somewhat).

    I know nothing of FourSquare.

    TIA

    I think loopt has to be enabled on your carrier account as well.

    It is a pretty cool thing to be a part of, but can be frustrating when the venue that you want to check into, doesn't seem to exist. I just upgraded to the mentioned version above on my 9700, and have had no issues with it.

    The last restaurant that I checked into, offered the Mayor a free burger every week that he/she was mayor. That was pretty cool.

    You're definitely someone I have to PM if I go for it. It seems you have the knowledge I would need to tap into. Right now I am trying to see the problems with the application (which you don't seem to have).

    Free burgers are always welcome in my neck of the woods. Mayor or not!

    sueferret doesn't list what device or OS that they are on, so it could be dependent on that.

    Could someone send me an invitation for Social Scope please? FourSquare blocks my BIS all the time, even if I only open the app.
