Video: Foursquare for Series 40 from Nokia Beta Labs

| February 18, 2011 | 7 Replies

It’s not just Nokia’s smartphone platforms (well, S^1/S^3) that get the foursquare app. Series 40 mobile phones will get it too. Matti Versterinen checks it out in the video below demoed on the Nokia C3-01 (and 5310?). s60 version coming soon maybe.

Before unleashing it on Ovi Store, Nokia are letting folks try it out at Nokia Beta Labs. Feedback would be most appreciated.

Foursquare is a popular location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier and more interesting to explore. Foursquare for Series 40 is a mobile java based application which works across a range of Nokia devices and gives millions more people access to the exciting world of foursquare. Share your location with friends by checking in to places while collecting points and virtual badges”

We are targetting Ovi Store and seeking feedback on the application. Especially, we are interested in what are the features and functionality that you would like to see and how the application works on different device models and countries.


  • Shout
  • Check in
  • Venueless check in (“check in here anyway”)
  • Search places
  • Add place
  • Recent checkins from friends
  • User info
  • Manage friend requests
  • And more to come… (See “More info” for roadmap)


  • Works on a range of S40 devices. (Devices tested: 5310, 6600 fold, 7230, C3-00, C3-01, X3-02)
  • We’ll try to add S60 version soon to have a broader audience for testing

I never really got the whole Foursquare craze thing. Are you a foursquare user?
