FourCircle – The foursquare app for the N900

6 June 2011Entry by

Now there is a new Foursquare app for Nokia N900 for those who wants to check in anywhere they go. Pretty much new and still in development plus it is a bit buggy when I was using it to review this Nokia N900 application. Here it goes for the review of FourCircle


  • A simple interface for those who wants a fast check-in. Takes a short time to load.

The check in interface. It shows you where are the check in points nearby you. The nearby estimation is way off I would say considering my nearest point is 3km away when my closest is like 2 metres away. I hope they can take a good look at this. But you can still check into the place you want.

  • Ranking that shows your current point accumulation

The ranking board system. Somehow I feel that it follows the interface adapted from iOS device Foursquare app

  • GPS detection is not accurate and other features such as Tips Nearby and Recent Check-ins require some in-app bug fix

The Tips Nearby seems to be working properly for awhile.

This was the bug I encountered with Recent Checkins. I pressed the button once and it wasn’t responding and it didn’t give any response too. Realised this event when I wanted to switch to my SMS. So i think if this bug is fixed this app could turn out great. Score: 6/10
